"Segment, our long celebration of the life of George Washington. Our nation's first president and the father of our country. Let's continue where we left off. Deeply feeling the plight of his men Washington constantly hounds, the continental congress for supplies trying to shame them by appealing to their sense of patriotism, Congress's typical response is to give Washington permission to commandeer what he needs from those living near his station troops, Washington refuses this invitation to rob his fellow citizens at the point of a ban at arguing that to do. So we'll Elliott the very people in whose name the struggle has been undertaken a struggle also exists with his generals Washington has as much trouble with some of them as he does with the British men like Charles Lee and Horatio gates men who'd been officers in the British army thought Washington was a bumpkin someone who didn't know anything about an army or how to run a war and they caused George a tremendous amount of trouble. They conspired they talk behind his back date spoke to members of congress. They tried to discredit him. But in the end, he met them with patience and persistence and their own incompetence ruin and George survived and Throughout his career. He appears touched by God. On horseback. He leads charges into the thick of battle wilfully exposing himself to cannon and musket fire strolling through a hell of shot yet. Not once does a bullet or shrapnel ever even grace him in April seventeen eighty one a British warships sales of the Potomac and trains, her guns on Washington's cherished home. Mount vernon. Most of Washington's Virginia now lay under British control the governor of Virginia Thomas Jefferson, begs Washington to come home and save his state Washington declines. When Jefferson called upon Washington to defend his home and his state. He was talking to a Washington who no longer existed. Washington's allegiance was no longer to the country. He had grown up in English Virginia. But was an allegiance future. Washington's record on the battlefield is three wins nine losses and one tie, which is no source of pride. If we succeed we have a chance to end the war. But the best battle to win is the last one surprise and terror. And Washington indoors long enough to win it the three week siege at your coun- providence. This is where the revolutionary war ends on October nineteenth seventeen eighty one when British general Cornwallis asks for the terms, Washington replies. That the same honour should be graduate to Cornwallis surrendering army as was granted to the American garrison of Charleston. The point is not lost on Cornwallis when Charleston fell to the British in seventeen eighty the British refused to grant the Americans the honors of war treating them as rebels and not as a legitimate army. Washington now demands the same two million of Cornwallis, but Cornwallis claims illness and sends us stand into the surrender ceremony. Indisposed? Second income on in an attempt at insult. The British standing tries to hand over Cornwallis his sword to a French officer who had fought with the Americans. But the Frenchman refuses directing him instead to Washington. Washington also refuses he orders the Englishman to surrender Cornwallis has soared to general Lincoln Lincoln. Accept the surrender. Who was humiliated American commander at Charleston. Partial. During his campaign against the British Washington is always outnumbered typically outgunned and always short on supplies weapons wagons horses and boats yet he repeatedly slips the British news choosing strategic retreat over honorable defeat. He doggedly wears his enemy down. The British lose the war not so much because the Americans under Washington defeat them on the battlefield, but because General George Washington does not give up or go away. But Washington's most important performance has yet to occur. I'm ascendancy is the end of the war Washington's generals and his high staff officers are disgruntled they haven't been paid. They don't trust the congress. They're not so sure that it's such a good idea to give over control of this new nation to this bunch of squabbling. Politicians? Many among them wanted Washington to assume greater power, in fact, maybe dictatorial powers, his officers plan a meeting at their headquarters on the night of March fifteenth seventeen eighty three they know how you feel. So they do not want you there the secret meeting. They will debate a move against congress to demand their back pay at gunpoint. If necessary. Washington knows he has to confront them. He begins writing a speech he agonizes over every sentence. And every word he was ripped apart inside he had suffered with these men. He'd watched them die. He'd watched them be wounded for their country. He knew what they'd given up. He knew how congress had mistreated them and him was attracted by their offer to be a kind of came. He knew for certain that if he gave into their offer he gave into the allure of power. Only would he betray his country. But he would also betray the reputation and the honor that had been so hard for him to attend. He rides alone to the meeting as he enters the building, the officers are stone. But he sees no smiles, and there is no applause as he stands before them and begs them, not to open the floodgates of civil.

"Okay. So in the middle of this horrible winter at Valley Forge there's this legend the crops up by legend one day. There's a Quaker Tori his name is Isaac pots, and he's walking through the woods. And here's what he writes, in that woods pointing to a close view. I heard a plaintiff sound as of a man of prayer. I tied my horse to a sapling and went quietly into the woods and to my astonishment. I saw the great George Washington on his knees alone with his sword on one side and his cocked hat on the other at. The God of the armies beseeching to impose with his divine aid, as it was a crisis and the cause of the country and humanity and of the world such a pair. I never heard from the lips of man. I left him alone. Praying I went home and told my wife, I saw a site and heard today what I never saw or heard before and just related to her what I had seen and heard and observed we never thought a man could be a soldier and a Christian. But if there is one in the world, it is Washington. She was also astonished we thought it was the cause of God in America could prevail. He then put me out his right hand and said I turned right about and became a wig. Meaning he started backing the American caused Washington told his aides that he would share it in the hardship partake of every inconvenience and he did by the time the army left Valley Forge they're actually better provision and trained than they had ever been before when they did leave. There was an incident that occurred the deepen the myth of Washington Washington's forces sought to harass the army of General, Henry Clinton who is heading from Philadelphia to New York Washington sense ahead. General Charles lead to lead the fighting, and he told lead to hold Clinton in place until Washington's entire army could arrive instead Lee retreated Washington, apparently cursed him out so viciously that General Charles Scott said, quote, the leaves shook on the free Washington, then took personal command of the troops. According to yet, he said that Washington's personal presents stopped the retreat Alexander Hamilton who you'll recall from the musical as well as history. Washington's top aide said other officers have great merit in performing their parts. Well, but he directed the whole with the skill of a master workman. The British ended up fleeing from New York Washington had a much needed victory. And there's another hard winter general Benedict Arnold betrayed the Republican fled to the side of the British Washington had to execute a British spy Major John Andre who was executed after the British refused to trade Benedict Arnold four John Andre if you ever watch the AMC series turn into a really good job of portraying what happened there by now Washington at Artie despaired of taking back New York. Instead, he decided to unite with French forces and captured the British army at Yorktown, which was the southern command general Cornwallis the commander at your town had been running roughshod through the south, but Cornwallis decided big mistake to hold hold up on the peninsula of York, James rivers. And wait for reinforcements. And it's there the Washington strikes. The seizure of your town ends with the surrender of some seven thousand British troops on October nineteenth seventeen eighty one. And people think that ended the war. It didn't work continued for another two years. But the momentum was now in Washington's favour, and he would need it because by seventeen eighty three Washington's officers were tired of being in the continental army. There were sick of the congress which refused to pay them on time and her refused. Them back pay his officers actually began to circulate a letter at Newburgh New York that they plan to send to congress announcing a revolt against the continental congress. Right. As the Americans were about to win the war. And this is when Washington steps in again, he first issues an order forbidding unsanctioned meetings. And then he calls his own for March fifteenth seventeen eighty three and there he ripped into the officers said gentlemen, find anonymous summons an attempt has been made two convenient together. How inconsistent with the rules of propriety hell unmilitary, he then begged his officers to place a full confidence in the purity of the intentions of congress, and then came one of the most famous Washington moments. He reaches into the breast pocket to re read a letter he's received from congress, and he takes out his spectacles and fumbles with them. And then one of the most famous lines in American history. He says gentlemen, you must pardon me. I have grown old in the service of my country. And now find that I am going blind the officers start crying. Everybody recognizes that Washington is given his entire life for this. And the mutiny dissolves wanna return I'm gonna tell the rest of the story of George Washington on.

"The grim days of the winter and spring of seventeen eighty one, but I like the payoff when Rochambeau meets Washington at his headquarters. Good evening to you. Bob. Good evening. John Rochambeau lands with fifty five hundred regulars beautifully turned out French veterans wearing their white uniforms. The picture you paint is spectacular. Russia. Mbo is there to meet with Washington? What? What does Washington one from Russia Mbo, and what does Russia Mbo one from Washington? Well, what they want from each other is to work out a joint strategy that they can both agree to to defeat the British defeat the British now Washington's idea I learned from you is to attack New York where he was driven out many years before he spent all these years sort of wondering the landscape between Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. Always being chased losing most of the battles he fights. In fact, he might have lost everyone, but not eventually being brought to bear by the British who's at New York that he wants to attack. Bob. Well, New York is the headquarters of the British commander in chief for North America. Henry Clinton General Henry Clinton, he has his headquarters fair, and they are about seven thousand British troops. That are arrayed around New York in a defensive posture in northern New Jersey on Long Island and along Long Island Sound so Clinton has an overwhelming force. Washington doesn't have near enough troops to attack that Rochambeau brings him fifty five hundred and he proposes to attack superior force dug in in a major city. What is Rochambeau say in response? Well, Rochambeau is under orders to. Comply with Washington's. Orders body hopes it can work out a joint strategy one thing that you didn't mention John was that the Royal Navy really dominated the waters around New York, and they were in Long Island sign they were in the Hudson, and they ran the East River, so any pack. On New York itself on Manhattan would have to cross a waterway. And that's why Russia Mbo is correct. In saying, a general, I respect you. But New York is well is well provided for by the navy and the army I have a squadron in the West Indies under an Admiral of French Admiral degrasse who will come north only as far as the Chesapeake. And that's what persuades Washington Rochambeau have in mind. Rochambeau favors marching from New York to the Yorktown peninsula were. General Cornwallis has established in the navy base. And this movement of it will have to be over land. And some of it will be by water down the Chesapeake Bay. Now. That's a spectacular proposal. They're five hundred miles from the peninsula, Yorktown peninsula from Williamsburg and Washington has a ragtag army that hasn't been paid in about five hundred years. Many of them wear homespun. They don't have uniforms. Many of them are barefoot and Rochambeau who has these brilliantly turned out troops who are all well paid. He's proposing to Washington they March five hundred miles across the British lines to to Virginia. And what is Washington thing? Washington is an Italy reluctant. But when he learns to that Admiral de Grasse will on each sale as far north as the Chesapeake. He goes along with Rochambeau plan. All right. So there reluctantly so this is the American long March five hundred miles through territory. You can't say is quite a friendly because the British any point could interrupt so they start they crossed the Hudson. And they marched through New Jersey. Now, there is one faints at Washington agrees to across from Staten Island. What is it Bob? That's correct. Once he reaches northern New Jersey. He faints slightly tore in the direction of the northern jersey shore across from Staten Island to give the impression that he is preparing to cross. Onto Staten Island as a prelude to an attack on Manhattan itself and Clinton buys it. And actually, we need we need to characterize Clinton. Was he considered to be a good commander in chief for North America? Clinton was a very experienced general. In fact. He had participated in the seven years war in Germany. He was at Bunker Hill in Boston. He led to attacks on Charleston one in seventeen seventy six it was we're falls, but then he sailed south again in seventeen eighty and actually manage to lay siege and capture Charleston after which he returned back to New York and left general Cornwallis in charge at Charleston. Yes, he was very experienced general. I was fifty one years old and had been in the service quite a while. But I learned from you that the relationship between Cornwallis and Clinton is critical, and it was not positive in fact, Cornwallis resented Clinton's vague orders that kept changing. So now, we need to turn to work on Wallace says Lafayette with inferior force has been shadowing Cornwallis who was left the Carolinas March into Virginia just Cornwall. Why does Cornwallis back into a peninsula? What's he what's he think is going to happen to him? Well, first of all his army was pretty worn down in the Carolinas. And he had original orders from general Clinton that he was to pacify both south and North Carolina. And then he was the March diverge Inya. Well, in fact, he did not pacify either, South Carolina or North Carolina. General green was still there with the southern American army and the partisans were still quite quite active. But. Disregarding Geno Clinton's original waters to him. He marched north into Virginia where he hoped to disrupt the recruitment effort of the patriots. They were recruiting men in Virginia at the March South in the Carolinas. Lafayette. However, a young Lafayette shadows that army and at one point he gets into an ambush. Well, actually, he meets overwhelming force. But that fr it seems to frighten Cornwallis he doesn't know how many are out there. And he doesn't know whether whether Lafayette is capable of defeating him in the field. So on Wallace seems to flinch back from Lafayette is that correct? Yes. That is correct. And another reason that he whipped through back. Well, originally, the Portsmouth and eventually moved to Yorktown was that he was receiving instructions from general Clinton in New York that he was to return a portion of his army to New York. And so Wallace is getting mixed orders from Clinton he backs himself into peninsula is expecting to get relieved. Does he does? He have the promise of British feet a fleet showing up off of Yorktown. Yes. In different correspondents that he was receiving from Clinton general Clinton Clinton assured him that he would be provided with reinforcements be required. But it wasn't true. I mean, that's what's striking to me Cornwallis puts himself into a trap with no guarantee that he can get off of that peninsula. Correct. That's true. And there was only one way to break out, and that was to cross the York river over Glaus, Chester point. And then try to March north up into Virginia. All right now, the detail here about Robert Morris, it doesn't sound very romantic to talk about a a paymaster, but Robert Morris's in Philadelphia and Washington's armies not been paid for a long time. Robert Morris has to provide not only money, but all of the all of the planning a we today would make a big deal about this all the roads that are to be taken for those five hundred miles. So Morris the way I read your book. Bob Morris is the the undecorated hero of of this campaign. I would definitely say so he was the newly appointed secretary of financing with appointed by the continental congress, and he had no military experience whatsoever. He was a merchant. In fact, he was born right here about six miles from where I'm sitting right now in eastern Maryland at Oxford, but he volunteered his services to the country and one-seat took on that job. He did a superb job in planning. He borrowed money. There was no money in the in the treasury at that time. So he his contacts a borrowed money from different bankers. Even put up some of his own fortune to aid the continental army the other thing that he did he appointed contracting officers that would move ahead of the army and provide contracts for food stops for shipping and so forth. But make sure the army was properly supplied as it was moving south and Russia Mbo offers the French half half. Crowns, silver, half crowns to pay for the army when the army after it. Philadelphia. Proceeds to head of Maryland where the major portion of the army is to embark on ships and sailed on the Chesapeake to time. There's only one problem the troops had not yet been paid and Robert Morris at expanded all of his funds that he had. So he goes to Rochambeau and asked if Rochambeau will pay the troops out of his own war chest with the promise that the United States would make good on that loan and general Rochambeau agrees to do that the men are paid, and they agree to board the ships and sailed down the Chesapeake. Yes, let us all remember that when we disdain the French that Rochambeau offers all the money he has and the French crown has been supplying the Americans for many years. This could lead to a shortage that will lead to the French revolution. But Rochambeau in addition to this is superior military officer. I'm speaking to rob ten sack. The book is seventeen Eighty-one the decisive year, the revolutionary war. They set sail down the Chesapeake to land your. Town to Leonard Williamsburg, and thus.
