General Charles Cornwallis was a well known British General. He is one of the five main British Generals in the series. He is seen in the episodes "Across the Delaware", "Conflict in the South", "James Armistead", and "Yorktown".

He eventually surrendered, due to lack of food and water to sustain his men.


Cornwallis makes a brief, non-speaking appearance in "Across the Delaware", where he and some of his men visit the now-abandoned city of Trenton, New Jersey sometime after the Battle of Trenton. There, he found that the Hessians and their supplies were nowhere to be seen--captured by the Americans, and that Washington and his men were not in the city (rather, they were mounting a surprise attack in nearby Princeton, New Jersey).

Cornwallis makes his speaking debut in the episode "Conflict in the South", where he and a faction of his men raid the house and stable of a Scottish Loyalist family for supplies somewhere in the southern Colonies.


Lord Charles Cornwallis is voiced by Ralph Fiennes.
