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.
