Yorktown, Virginia

Yorktown is a census-designated place in York County, Virginia, United States. The population was 203 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of York County , one of the 8 original shires formed in colonial Virginia in 1634. It is most famous as the site of the surrender of General Cornwallis to General George Washington in 1781. Although the war would last for another year, this British defeat at Yorktown did effectively end the American Revolutionary War. Yorktown also figured prominently in the American Civil War , serving as a major port to supply both northern and southern towns, depending upon who held Yorktown at the time. Today, Yorktown is part of an important national resource known as the Historic Triangle of Yorktown, Jamestown and Williamsburg, and is the eastern terminus of the Colonial Parkway.
