Summary

The Battle of Yorktown is a proud and exciting story, boldly written with stirring narrative that is filled with vivid first-hand accounts from great leaders such as General George Washington and Lord Cornwallis, as well as from common soldiers such as the battle's most dedicated diarist, Lieutenant Ebenezer Denny. Some sensed that there was something more to this siege of a British garrison trapped in a Virginia port city; that if the Americans won, the world would be turned upside down. Fleming documents every critical stage of the battle and even includes such little known after-battle incidents as the details on why Congress greeted Washington's news of victory with embarrassment. The result is an invaluable account of the battle that secured American independence.
