Days, later British General Lord Cornwallis with nearly 9,000 troops. Yorktown was the ending of the American Revolution. With peace negotiations afterwards. e. The other possible outcomes for my event is that the french could have not signed the treaty and kept on with the war and beat the British c. The outcome of the event is that the french signed the treaty and hadn't gave up all french land so they could neutralize the military threat to the British colonies there d. I agree with the outcomes because it makes the America's a safer more peaceful place then it was before If the french had not arrived to Yorktown at the time they did the Americans wouldn't have had won the war and Yorktown wouldn't have proved to be the final battle of the American Revolution,and the British wouldn't have begun peace negotiations shortly after that American victory.

It is related to it because it lead up to the Siege of Yorktown. g) I would recommend a more stealthy approachwith native bowsand arrows and/or crossbows then just bombarding the lace with 1000s of men. This battle was important to the end of the war because it was the final battle. It was also when the British laid down their arms and surrendered showing that The British army was decimated and the Revolutionary war was virtually over. I agree with the outcome of the Treaty. The Treaty was beneficial to both of the nations because it stopped a massive bloodbath, stopped the massive money use,and saved thousands of lives for the Americans and British. The best term that helped out the British is if the French signed the treaty they would give up all land in North America to neutralize the military threats of the British colonies there. The Treaty of Paris of 1783, helped reach an agreement between the United States and Great Britain, it ended the revolutionary war and recognized American independence such as the nations freedom
