Cornwallis' Cave at Yorktown, Virginia




In October of 1781, American and French troops closed in on Lord Cornwallis, the British Commander, by ground and sea.  Shelling the town eventually made Cornwallis move his command center to the river side and into this very small cave until his surrender on October 19.
