In October 1781, Continental and French soldiers assaulted two critical British positions at Yorktown, Redoubts 9 and 10. It was one of the most consequential attacks of the American Revolution. Their capture eventually forced Lord Charles Cornwallis to surrender his army to General George Washington and achieve independence for the United States.
