The Yorktown Battlefield marks the end of the American Revolutionary War, though skirmishes continued for another couple of years.  This last great battle involved over 25,000 French army and naval forces, 21,000 British forces as well as 9,000 American soldiers.  British general Lord Charles Cornwallis established a naval base at the colonial tobacco port in the 7th year of the Revolutionary War.
