Victory of Yorktown, Virginia – October 19, 1781
The decisive Battle of Yorktown, recognized as one of the most skillful military actions in history, marked the end of the War of Independence between the American colonies and England.
The British General Cornwallis surrendered to the Commander-in-Chief of the American-French forces, General Washington, backed by General Rochambeau and Admiral de Grasse.
France was the first country to acknowledge American independence in 1778; then again, to recognize the United States of America as an independent nation when the Treaties of Paris and Versailles were signed in 1783.
