G. Washington's letters to Congress after seige of Boston

TOPIC

This is an account of Boston after the evacuation of British troops in March 1776, written by George Washington. The final four pages of this group of documents includes his signature (p. 544). It's a fascinating way to view history and a surprise defeat of the British which showed them that colonial troops weren't a total rabble, and that the general had a few tricks up his sleeve.

  • Boston, Massachusetts

This topic page refers to a set of documents in the Papers of the Continental Congress, Item 152, Volume 1, p. 544. I'll add more comments soon. Just trying out the tools.
