Yorktown "is most famous as the site of the siege and subsequent surrender of General Cornwallis to General George Washington during the American Revolutionary War on October 19, 1781. Although it would last for another year, this British defeat at Yorktown effectively ended the war."

Jamestown "is located on Jamestown Island in the Virginia Colony, was founded on May 14, 1607 and is the first permanent English settlement in what is now the United States of America."
