The British wintered in Philadelphia, where they had parties and gambled. The American Army was in a bad way, disease and desertion meant the numbers and morale were low. Washington stayed with his troops and he spent the winter training the men, with the help of a Prussian officer - Von Steuben. Victory With the newly trained American Army and help from the Spanish, Dutch and French the war turned in America's favour. Washington defeated General Cronwallis (British Leader) at Yorktown on 19 October 1781. The war was over. The British signed the Treaty of Paris in 1783', America was now independent.
