In this episode we conclude with a British victory. Howe was able to maneuver George Washington's forces out of Manhattan Island and then across the Hudson River into New Jersey. While failing to destroy the Continentals, Howe was certain the rebels were on the ropes and could be dealt with decisively in the 1777 campaign season. While Washington's army shrank before his eyes, with the barrier of the Delaware River to protect him, he began to plan a raid that would keep the British off balance into the new year.

After the evacuation of Boston, the British set their eyes on New York City. In the summer of 1776, the Howe brothers attacked George Washington's troops through the western end of Long Island. Washington was forced out of his position and had to evacuate Long Island to Manhattan. Rather than vigorously pursue the Continental Army, Howe waited, not wanting to alienate the Americans as he held out hope for a negotiated settlement.
