In the mind of General Howe and his subordinates, 1777 offered another opportunity to end the rebellion in the thirteen colonies. In spite of a sound plan to cut off New England with a pincer movement from Canada and New York City, Howe's plans were derailed with his move to Pennsylvania. While he was successful in capturing the city, the Continental Army survived to fight another day. Moreover, his insistence on moving south deprived John Burgoyne's advance from Canada of mutual support. If you like this episode, please write a review on ITunes. Questions, comments, and concerns?

In our last episode, we spoke of the trials and tribulations of the Continental Navy. We continue the war at sea in this episode with a brief exploration of the Continental Marines. The United States Marine Corps traces their roots back to the American Revolution, so it seems appropriate to talk briefly about their legacy. If you enjoy this podcast, write a review on ITunes.
