Sunday, October 19, Battle Of Yorktown. Battle Of Yorktown October 19, In the course of this summer they passed through all the extensive settlements which lie between Newport and York-Town.
Yet so complete was their discipline, that in this long march, scarce an instance could be produced of a peach or an apple being taken, without the consent of the inhabitants. By great fortune the private letters of British General Clinton were captured. It was in Cipher and after some trouble it was discovered to be in three different Cyphers.
However it was deciphered by a Mr. Lovell, a Member of Congress from Boston, after about two days' labor. By this means W. I had the honor to write to your Excellency yesterday, and now can confirm more than the intelligence then communicated.
Enclosed herewith you will receive copies of two original letters in Cyphers now in my possession, which have been faithfully decyphered, from Sir Henry Clinton to Lord Cornwallis, respecting the designs of the Enemy.
This information has been forwarded to his Excellency General Washington. I pray God to direct your Counsels, and protect you in the hour of battle. The British Admiral has now 26, if not 29 ships of the line.
He had not sailed on Thursday the 11th instant, by the best information I can get. My two last letters must, I know from your opinion of my character, have spread the wings of your expectation. My intelligence was true; the inclosed copies of two original letters from Sir Henry Clinton to Lord Cornwallis, which I have in cyphers, and which have been faithfully decyphered by Mr Lovell whose key I had the honor to forward to you about a fortnight ago more than prove the fact.
I shall make no comment on the letters of Sir Henry, lest I should wade beyond my depth, but I rest assured you will excuse what I think it a duty to add. As to the three additional ships, they are supposed to have come from the West Indies, and are said to have arrived the beginning of last week.
Among the letters all being carefully enclosed in lead I have found some, that will enable me to prevent some men of Sussex County in the State I have the honor to represent, from doing us much mischief, and perhaps they may enable me to make further discoveries: I never heard of them before, and not having time to satisfy myself where they lie, must refer it to your enquiry. It is far from my thoughts to intermeddle in the operations of the campaign, but I know you will pardon me for suggesting to Major General Heath, that after Sir Henry Clinton sails, it is my opinion there will not be above Four thousand land forces left in New-York and it's environs, of whom there cannot be above a thousand regulars, and that therefore it may be adviseable for him to be in readiness to attack it, if he should be so directed by you.
Should you, Sir, think this practicable, or adviseable, there will, in less than a fortnight after I shall have information of it, be five thousand militia to co-operate with him. The use that may be made of the three large smoaks, if you shall have succeeded against Lord Cornwallis, will readily suggest itself, to you, and if not, the knowledge of it may prove advantageous.
Ramsay writes, in , of the Yorktown effort: The combined forces proceeded on their way to Yorktown, partly by land, and partly down the Chesapeake. The French fleet at the same time moved to the mouth of York River, and took a position which was calculated to prevent lord Cornwallis, either from retreating, or receiving succour by water. The combined army halted in the evening, about two miles from Yorktown, and lay on their arms all night.
On the next day Colonel Scammell, an officer of uncommon merit, and of the most amiable manners, in approaching the outer works of the British, was mortally wounded and taken prisoner. About this time Earl Cornwallis received a letter from Sir Henry Clinton, announcing the arrival of Admiral Digby with three ships of the line from Europe, and the determination of the General and flag officers in New-York to embark men in a fleet, which would probably sail on the 5th of October - that this fleet consisted of 23 sail of the line, and that joint exertions of the navy and army would be made for his relief.
On the night after the receipt of this intelligence, Earl Cornwallis quitted his outward position, and retired to one more inward. A marshy ravine lay in front of the right, over which was placed a large redoubt.
The morass extended along the center, which was defended by a line of stockade, and by batteries: On the left of the center was a horn-work with a ditch, a row of fraize and an abbatis. Two redoubts were advanced before the left.
The combined forces advanced and took possession of the ground from which the British had retired. About this time the legion cavalry and mounted infantry, passed over the river to Gloucester, General de Choisy invested the British post on that side so fully, as to cut off all communication between it and the country. In the meantime the royal army was straining every nerve to strengthen their works and their artillery was constantly employed in impeding the operations of the combined army.
They kept up a brisk and well directed fire from heavy cannon, from mortars and howitzers. The shells of the besiegers reached the ships in the harbor, the Charon of 44 guns and a transport ship were burned. On the 10th a messenger arrived with a dispatch from Sir Henry Clinton to Earl Cornwallis, dated on the 30th of September, which stated various circumstances tending to lessen the probability of relief being obtained, by a direct movement from New-York.
Earl Cornwallis was at this juncture advised to evacuate York-town, and after passing over to Gloucester, to force his way into the country. Whether this movement would have been successful, no one can with certainty pronounce, but it could not have produced any consequences more injurious to the royal interest, than those which resulted from declining the attempt.
The besiegers commenced their second parallel yards from the works of the besieged. Two redoubts which were advanced on the left of the British, greatly impeded the progress of the combined armies. It was therefore proposed to carry them by storm. The assailants marched to the assault with unloaded arms; having passed the abbatis and palisades, they attacked on all sides, and carried the redoubt in a few minutes with the loss of 8 killed and 28 wounded, Lieutenant Colonel Laurens personally took the commanding officer prisoner.
His humanity and that of his associates, so overcame their resentments that they spared the British, though they were charged when they went to the assault, to remember New-London the recent massacres at which place shall be hereafter related and to retaliate by putting the men in the redoubt to the sword.
Being asked why they had disobeyed orders by bringing them off as prisoners, they answered, "We could not put them to death, when they begged for their lives.
Colonel Hamilton who conducted the enterprise, in his report to the Marquis de la Fayette mentioned to the honour of his detachment, "that incapable of imitating examples of barbarity, and forgetting recent provocations, they spared every man who ceased to resist. The French were equally successful on their part.
They carried the redoubt assigned to them with rapidity, but lost a considerable number of men. These two redoubts were included in the second parallel, and facilitated the subsequent operations of the besiegers.
He proceeded so far as to force two redoubts, and to spike eleven pieces of cannon. Though the officers and soldiers displayed great bravery in this enterprise, yet their success produced no essential advantage. The cannon were soon unspiked and rendered fit for service. By this time the batteries of the besiegers were covered with nearly a hundred pieces of heavy ordnance, and the works of the besieged were so damaged, that they could scarcely show a single gun. Lord Cornwallis had now no hope left but from offering terms of capitulation or attempting an escape.
The 17th brought more than 90 guns into the siege. Cornwallis finally offered a white flag and sought to negotiate a favorable surrender. At 10 o'clock on the morning of October 17, , a drummer beating a 'parley,' and a British officer with a flag of truce, mounted a parapet south of Yorktown. The allies saw the signal, and soon the incessant, devastating artillery fire ceased. Lord Cornwallis, realizing the defeat of his army was inevitable, sent a message to General George Washington: Why Cornwallis selected the Moore House for the negotiations was not explained, however, there are a number of possibilities.
The Moore House was well outside the line of siege fire, and therefore, not damaged. And finally, it was a convenient location for both sides to reach, as it was situated along the York River. Washington agreed to only a two hour cease fire for Cornwallis to submit general terms of surrender. Messages continued to pass over the battlefield between the two commanders. The negotiations ended before midnight, and Laurens carried a rough draft of the articles to General Washington.
Washington, however, was not completely happy with the results and made a few minor changes. The Articles of Capitulation were terms for the surrender of Cornwallis's British army. The 14 articles directed the surrender from the disposition of the troops, artillery, and arms, to even the surrender ceremony itself. The articles directed where the troops, now prisoners of war, were to be sent. One field officer for every 50 men was allowed to reside near their respective regiments to witness their treatment and deliver clothing and other necessaries to the soldiers at the camps.
All other officers were paroled and allowed to go to Europe, New York, or any other American post then in possession of the British forces; on the condition they would no longer fight until properly exchanged.
Another article provided for the care of the sick and wounded prisoners. Medicine and supplies were to be provided by the American hospitals, the British stores in both York and Gloucester, and passports would be issued to procure further supplies from New York if necessary. The third article referred to the surrender ceremony and contained the provision that deprived the British of the honors war.
Customary honors allowed the surrendering troops to march out of their works with their regimental flags flying and playing an enemy's tune in honor of the victor. George Washington was not going to allow these honors, instead he stated, 'The same honors will be granted to the surrendering army as granted to the garrison of Charlestown'.
The troops, the article read, were to ' They are then to ground their arms and return to their encampment, where they will remain until they are dispatched to the places of their destination It was near midnight when he entered the city October 23, I must beg you to remind Congress, that when they did me the honor of electing me President, and before I assumed the Chair, I informed them, that as Chief Justice of Pennsylvania, I should be under the necessity of attending the Supreme Court of that State, the latter end of September, or at farthest in October.
That court will be held to-day; I must therefore request, that they will be pleased to proceed to the choice of another President. The USCA accepted the resignation on that day but postponed the election of president until the next day.
McKean arose, and presently the glad tidings were made known. The December video was an impromptu capture by a member of the audience of Penn students, professors and guests that numbered about That Congress will, at two o'clock this day, go in procession to the Dutch Lutheran church, and return thanks to Almighty God, for crowning the allied arms of the United States and France, with success, by the surrender of the whole British army under the command of the Earl of Cornwallis.
Original handwritten Journal of the United States in Congress Assembled for Wednesday, October 24th, , recording the resolutions enacted by Congress after being informed that Earl Cornwallis had surrendered at Yorktown. Whereas, it hath pleased Almighty God, the supreme Disposer of all Events father of mercies, remarkably to assist and support the United States of America in their important struggle for liberty, against the long continued efforts of a powerful nation: Through the whole of the contest, from its first rise to this time, the influence of divine Providence may be clearly perceived in many signal instances, of which we mention but a few.

The food and drinks we delish. We walked away happy and full. When we come here that is always my choice and it is always cooked just right.
The dinner rolls with honey butter are worth the calories! I also love the green beans and they have a very nice side salad. We had ordered an appetizer but our entree actually came first which was unfortunate but they comped the appetizer and we just took it home. It is generally pretty busy so you can call ahead for seating.
I have never been disappointed. Wednesday night out with friends. Parking lot was full, as was the restaurant! Wait time was not long. We ate a lot of pre-meal delights and I was full before my sirloin arrived. Perfect medium rare and good baked potato. Others enjoyed ribs and different cuts of steak. Our table staff kept checking in on us and delivered items quickly. Very good food and we will be back! Own or manage this property?
