IN THEIR OWN WORDS


​"The hour is fast approaching, on which the Honor and Success of this army, and the safety of our bleeding Country depend. Remember officers and Soldiers, that you are free men, fighting for the blessings of Liberty -- that slavery will be your portion, and that of your posterity, if you do not acquit yourselves like men."

~ George Washington

American Revolution - Northern Campaign


The Northern Campaign stretched across New England, the middle Atlantic colonies and even into Canada.   It included most of the well-known battes of The Revolution and courtless lesser conflicts that seldom are mentioned in the history books.  It included the Continental Army’s horrific “Winter at Valley Forge”.  It was the primary focus of military operations for the early years of the war.   Once Britain found itself unable to quash the growing rebellion in these areas, they shifted strategy to the southern colonies with ultimate disastrous results.
