Actually the Battle or Siege of Yorktown in 1781 started on Spetember 28 and ended on the October 19th, not the 9th, when General Lord Cornwallis surrendered to General Washington and Marshal or General Comte De Rochambeau.

Still pretty good history telling RudTheSpud man despite your thick heavy Scottish or Irish accent, do or tell the story of the US American Civil War.
