Yorktown Siege Ends

Yorktown Victory, General George Washington

On October 16, 1781, George Washington captured Yorktown, Virginia, after the Siege of Yorktown.

October 16 is a traditional date to award Nobel Peace Prizes, good (Desmond Tutu, 1984), and bad (Henry Kissinger, 1973). Two Nobel laureates were born on October 16, as well: Austen Chamberlain, English statesman, saw daylight first in 1863; Eugene O’Neill, American playwright and Nobel Laureate for Literature, made his debut in 1888.
