Lord Cornwallis was a very important british commander. He led a fight into the patriots in South Carolina. He was going to destroy all the patriots but was tricked and ambushed. The Patriots ran him out of South Carolina and in to Yorktown where he surrendered and he was the main reason Britain lost the revolutionary war
