Treaty of Paris - The Revolutionary War is Over
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     The end of the war was coming. The colonists were going to beat Britain. Charles Cornwallis was leading the British army. He took his army to Virginia. Cornwallis attacked the capital. The governor had to run away.
 
2     Then, Cornwallis made a huge mistake. He should have sent half of his army to New York. But he went to Yorktown. Yorktown was a little piece of land. It was near the water. Cornwallis thought that British ships would come to help him.
 
3     George Washington knew that this was his chance. If he trapped Cornwallis, the war would be over. He took his army south from New York. A group of ships from France came. They blocked the water. Cornwallis could not get any help. The trap had worked.
 
4     Cornwallis had fewer men than Washington. Washington knew this. He fired cannons at Cornwallis for many days. He did not stop. Many of Cornwallis's troops were hurt or killed. They could not rest. Cornwallis did not quit for a couple of weeks. Soon, he knew it was hopeless. He was running out of food. They had to surrender.
