Which American general influenced the British to march to Yorktown in the first place? What convinced Washington to go to Yorktown instead of defending New York? And how did the critical Battle of the Chesapeake influence the battle in Virginia? Find out what types of weapons and strategies worked and which ones did not in this detailed story of the Battle of Yorktown.
