Interesting Fact:

On October 19, 1781, in Yorktown, Virginia, Charles Lord Cornwallis signed orders surrendering his British Army to a combined French and American force. As Cornwallis' 8,000 man force became prisoners-of-war, the British band played the "The World Turned Upside Down," a tune that underscored the strange turn of events which had brought defeat at the hands of the provincial forces of America, to the most powerful country in Europe.
