What-If. Cornwallis's army occupied Yorktown for supplies and men, 5,000 men supposed to arrive from New York from Clinton, But the French fleet defeated the British Navy in the Capes and prevent the reinforcement. What if those Reinforcements had arrived? Would Cornwallis hold out? NOTE: If your wondering about British numbers Yorktown_a shows 5,000. Historically Cornwallis had around 8,000. I add 7,000 to make 13,000. Historically 8,000 + 5,000= 13,000 so it comes out correctly.

100+ strength French units vs British units of 25 or less means the casualties in fire will always favor the French. The redoubts don't make any difference in the defense and all the British forward troops in line are exposed with swamp to their rear. Reinforcements will take too long to get there to save them. Not worth playing.
