He reached Cook’s Ford on the North Anna River and stopped. He became aware that Wayne’s force was getting close to joining up with Lafayette. Cornwallis decided to stop chasing Lafayette.
“2 June 1781. Lafayette reached Corbin’s Bridge. He learned of the British evacuation of Camden,
“Unfortunately Greene’s instructions to von Steuben to this effect were intercepted and the Prussian remained in doubt for some time as to his line of command status. Von Steuben would not learn until 12 June that he had been ordered to stay in Virginia, and be under Lafayette’s command. Lafayette was sensitive to von Steuben’s feelings, and never pushed the matter, though he was not fully aware of von Steuben misunderstanding.” (Submitted on September 16, 2012, by J. J.
