In the aftermath of France's entry into the war, Great Britain's resources were stretched thin. General Howe's replacement, Henry Clinton, could not be everywhere at once, so he evacuated Philadelphia to consolidate his forces in New York City. As the British marched across New Jersey, George Washington moved to intercept them. The two columns met at Monmouth Court House and fought for nearly an entire day in hot and humid weather. While for all intents and purposes this was draw, Washington demonstrated that he could continue to frustrate British efforts. Rather than continue the campaign in the northeast, the British chose to move south, which will be the topic of our next episode. Questions? Contact us at americawarpodcast@gmail.com.
