Along the western frontier, the U.S. war for independence raged on for another year after the British surrender at Yorktown in 1781.
( Battle of Blue Licks, Kentucky- British and Indians defeated the Colonials a year after the British 'gave up'-Daniel Boone knew his commanding officer was being led into an ambush-as the colonials were being routed, Boone tried to give an unmounted horse to his son, so he could escape- the son was then shot dead. Boone then rode out to safety).
