The Final Campaign

1.  British believe Loyalists stronger in southern colonies, so fighting shifts there

2.  Spring 1780—English capture Savannah and Charleston

3.  August 1780—American army routed at Camden, South Carolina

   

4.  Continental army rallies under Nathaniel Greene  victories at King's Mountain, Cowpens, and Guilford Courthouse

5.  Cornwallis moves British into Virginia, 1781

   

6.  October 19, 1781—Cornwallis surrenders to Washington’s combined French and American forces at the Battle of Yorktown.

 

(Pic above: This is not really Cornwallis surrendering to Washington.  In fact, Cornwallis sent his second in command as did Washington.)

Treaty of Paris   1st and only time a colony received
                                     their freedom by war from England
 
    1.  Colonies are "free,
         sovereign   and
         independent States"
    2.  U. S. receives all land east
         of Mississippi
   
    3.  Spain regained Florida

The real winners on the War for Independence, was the United States. A new nation, dedicated to the principles of freedom and justice, had been born.

In time, America would become the envy of all peoples who cherish freedom.
