American Revolution - Southern Campaign


The Southern Campaign largely began as a major strategic shift by Britain that met with early success under General Earl Cornwallis.  The crown's inability to quash the Revolution in the northern colonies resulted in some of the fiercest combat of the war.  Battles in the Carolina's and other southern colonies seemed to take on more of the flavor of a "Civil War" among the people.  But the war changed quickly and decisively at Yorktown after the French fleet landed at Rhode Island and headed for Virginia to join forces with George Washington and the Continental Army.
