The Fall of France in 1940

"Doing the right thing goes against common sense. It might involve personal sacrifice or missing out on an opportunity to earn a living. It might even put us endanger. The right thing is rarely the safest path forward but it often represents the best odds in september of nineteen fourteen. The people of france found themselves in a desperate position. The soldiers and war machines of germany were marching closer and closer to paris. It wasn't as if they hadn't tried to stop them. No that's what they've been doing for weeks. The war had sprung like a leak from a seemingly tiny hole with the assassination of austrian archduke. France ferdinand that was june twenty eighth of nineteen fourteen by august. First germany had declared war on russia two days later they set their sights on france as well. They had lost territory to france in the aftermath of the franco prussian. War of eighteen. Seventy one and they wanted it back in late august. On their way to francis northern border germany pushed through belgium. The small nation was quickly captured by august twentieth. It was in full occupation. All of a sudden the enemy had possession of territory right on the border and they showed no signs of stopping germany's forces were like a tidal wave of bullets and blood and it seemed very likely that france would indeed be invaded but again they tried to stop it. British soldiers came to help but the battle of months did not go as well as they had hoped for sending france and her allies into a quick retreat that was august twenty third. You have to stop and think about what it must have felt like. For the people of france and specifically those in the capital city of paris a foreign power had declared war on them and was now barreling toward them like a juggernaut in fact nothing had stopped germany at all and it would have been easy to feel hopeless in the face of that approaching danger in fact britain's foreign secretary at the time sir. Edward grey expressed that hopelessness out loud to a friend when he said the lamps are going out all over europe we shall not see them lit again in our

The Legacy and the Future of Pride Month

"June twenty eighth nine thousand nine hundred sixty nine fifty two years ago. Police raided the stonewall in a gay bar and the uprising. That followed was led by trans activists. Marsha p johnson and sylvia rivera and it sparked a movement that has continued for decades marsha and sylvia like the trans vibe in lower manhattan at the time. It was real. They were taking up space at the stonewall inn and other places and that's why when the police raided they were like nana. You're not gonna quietest so. The first pride march in new york city was held on the one year anniversary of that uprising at stonewall similar marches went on in chicago san francisco los angeles but the history of that is rooted in resistance towards police violence over the last few years. It's like you know. Hey everybody is celebrating pride there you see. Cvs there you see comcast there you see. At and t. Putting out statements basically professing to be lgbtq allies but still giving money to politicians who are pushing anti lgbtq legislation and this is just three out of the twenty five companies that are actually pushing anti lgbtq federal state politicians. So as june comes to an end can do a little bit of a temperature. Check kinda how are you feeling at this moment in our. I'm wondering how are you thinking about this moment in going forward in two thousand twenty one post pandemic to put it singly. I think that aside from everything i think. That pride is as much about a recommitment to the unfinished business of nineteen. Sixty-nine as it is a celebration celebration has to be a part of any type of commemoration especially for people color. It's how we retain joy in the moments of difficulty but at the same time. I think that we have to recognize that. There's a lot of unfinished business. And specifically when it comes to the intersection of gender identity and race and economic opportunity all of those things that sylvia and marsha embodied in their life of the challenges in the hope that still remains very much on the table. And so i think that's what pride is every year and that's what i look to do with a recommitment

Throw the first Stone(wall)

"In the early hours of june twenty eighth nineteen sixty nine new york city police raided the greenwich village. Gay club called the stonewall inn. Let me set the scene for you. Gay clubs were much more than a place to get drunk or look for love in the nineteen sixties and frankly all the decades leading up to it. They were not exactly accepting of lgbt people. Being queer wasn't only societally unacceptable. It was against the law same sex relations between consenting adults or illegal in new york city in nineteen eighty and you could be arrested on the street for not wearing at least three articles of gender appropriate clothing now out on a limb here and say that men in skirts found themselves on the receiving end of that one a lot more often than women and slacks did understandably. Lgbt people flocked to gay bars and clubs refuges where they could socialize and more importantly be themselves openly. You still weren't safe there though. The new york city state liquor. Authority penalized and shutdown. Gay bars arguing. That the mir gathering of more than three homosexuals was technically disorderly. These regulations were overturned in nineteen sixty six thanks to the efforts of strident activists but things as simple as holding hands with someone of the same gender was still illegal so police harassment of gay bars continued. There was another player. In the game the mafia the mob saw profit to be had in catering to the displaced and disenfranchised gay clientele by the mid nineteen sixties. The genovese crime family controlled most of the gay bars in the village in nineteen sixty six. They purchased the stonewall inn which had been a bog standard bar and restaurant renovated it on the cheap and reopened it as a gay bar. Stonewall inn was registered as a private bottle bar which did not require a liquor licence because patrons were supposed to bring their own liquor club attendees had to sign their names in a book to maintain the club's membership facade. Police initially left the stonewall inn alone by dint of regular bribes from the jennifer easies patrons benefited by the fact that the police hassling the owners but it also meant that the owners could run the club as they saw fit which meant as cheaply as possible. The club lacked a fire exit. There was no running water behind the bar to wash the glasses. Though there was plenty of water in the drinks themselves and the less said about the bathrooms the better

We've learned a lot of a lot of the existing solutions are based on a creation platform so Us As a company gives innovation the creation platform where they can define their intense and build workflows or conversation flows officials says X. replied with fly with another Blind we maybe Detroit Branch Users set and found it to be Embargoes There's friction at both the deployment and maintenance organization so we said we try to look for a completely blogging play approach. So what we do. Is We actually up into the existing data sources of the organization scrape them and we basically translating the the date now? Two different data structure which is a knowledge graph which is composed out of the main entities Andrew attributes and disconnections when this ended his attributes and this is our own representations of the Beta and which we can query natural language sessions. Really give them an embedded that piece of code they just copying base to their Website Call Center. Alexa Google and they have their voice assistant or Well basically the content. Yes so I'm not a computer scientist. That seems like maybe you can just explain that a little bit. How are you able to go? And when you're working with different organizations which which presumably have different ways of organizing their data take one piece of code and yet make it applicable to all these different organizations. Yeah absolutely so. I'll explain a one of the main use cases we've found valuable for healthcare provider is is helping their patients. The physician find the physician based on various attributes of this position when talked about their constructing. This nottage raffle and is a natural In this case the entity is a physician. And I can you might be a geology locations that the accepting insurance length that they accept and so on and so what we do. Is We actually go on by this website? And as all of their physicians went Beijing has been so we scrape them. And we don't care whether it's under the physicians or tens of thousands of physicians with scrape them build this knowledge graph and then on every attribute that the wasn't the data we can basically retrieve the relevant dancer. And I'll give you an interesting example show when we first deployed and we thought about you know people can ask seems like looking for cardiologists to speak Spanish. And ethnic cleansing the upper east side right location language specialities insurance men and so on so we destiny the beat and we actually gave to the first female user to death and she asked for an and that's just the use case that we didn't we didn't think of why a person would fit there by gender. Maybe you think it makes a little sense liquid even think about it was amen to recline with the relevant results. Just because the data was there it was a gender female man for each physician.

KCRW's Hollywood Breakdown

A crisis of comedies at the box office

"KCRW sponsors include Universal Pictures, presenting the new movie yesterday, would, if you were the only person that remembered, the Beatles ever existed, from the director of Slumdog millionaire and the writer of love actually yesterday in theaters Friday, June twenty eighth. I Matt Bellamy filling in for Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown. Joining me is Brooks, Barnes of the New York Times, and Brooks were dealing with somewhat of a crisis in a certain corner of Hollywood and that is the corner that makes comedies for theatrical distribution. These are movie comedies, and this summer one after another has just been flopping in theaters this past weekend, late night, a very heralded comedy starring and written by Mindy. Kaeling was a total flop five million in many thousand theaters. And it was bought for thirteen million at the Sundance film festival in January, so Amazon, which bought the film, and then released it had big hopes for this movie didn't work. Out what's going on? You know, when you look at that graph teach are published about comedy over the last decade is just like hits you in the face. It's like from two point five billion in two thousand nine to one billion last year. I mean is just a precipitous drop. And so there couple of things that are across the board. Right. The rise of streaming. But I think they're also things specifically about these movies about late night. For example, has some very movie by movie reasons that things aren't going. Well, yeah, I look at the movies that have not done well, this summer, and there have been some studio comedies, like palms which was a an older, female or ended film cheerleaders. And there was long shot, which was a Seth Rogan Charlie's Theran comedy that a while ago you would have thought it would be in the vein of knocked up, which made hundreds of millions of dollars. And it totally flopped, and then book smart was a smaller comedy that got amazing reviews and no one showed up. So I think there's something is going. On. And I think it has to do with this devaluation of the theatrical experience, increasingly movie, goers are saying, we want the biggest the most expensive the event films in theaters and the rest, you know what? Maybe we'll wait for streaming. Yeah. It's not that streaming Netflix has trained people to look for comedy at home necessarily, not in theaters. It's that streaming has trained us to expect exe- entertainment. You know, at highlights the expense, and hassle of going to the theater across the board and the studios aren't blameless, here, either because consequentially they have focused on making these international tent poles and the knock on comedy is at sometimes it is America specific, the stars and the comedy doesn't travel as well overseas. So I think when you're thinking about these mid budget comedies that used to be a stable of the studios. They just aren't willing to make those bets anymore. And Seth Rogan Charlene Darren can't bring people to. The theater who can well late night. You know, there are a couple of things people haven't talked about much. I'll take the bullet one of them. One of them is that Mindy Kaeling is not a movie star. She's an enormously talented, actress and writer, but audiences don't seem to. She doesn't seem to be a draw in theaters which kind of brings us back to that streaming question at the beginning, right? What gets us out of our home to pay for all that popcorn and a babysitter and parking and all of that. And the and the other thing is that when you look at Amazon, this is their tenth release and there's not one of those, that's worked, I guess, maybe Cold War. Foreign film at about four point five million dollars, but you know, they don't seem to know what they're doing with these movie releases and the irony here is that there was a movie star, two of them actually that had a release last weekend, and it was Jennifer, Aniston and Adam Sandler in a Netflix movie that premiered exclusively on Netflix. And while the critics didn't like it. Netflix, put out, one of their periodic audience boasts on Monday saying, thirty million accounts access the film, which, as we've noted many times that is not verified by any outside auditing service. But it shows that people. Were interested in a comedy last weekend. They just weren't interested in going to the theater. And that's right. And the other thing that those Netflix numbers, they say, it's how many accounts watched seventy percent of the title. And so I don't know about you, but I often find myself in the other room with Netflix running the living room, so who many people are actually watching. I don't know. But the interest is, is the key point like you said and that comes from big stars. That's New York Times reporter Brooks Barnes. He joins me this Monday at one thirty on the business. I'm Matt Bellamy. And this is the Hollywood breakdown.

"Announcing today, it will start rolling out delivery, seven days, a week, beginning next year in order to keep up with the demands of shipping partners like Amazon, and WalMart president CEO raw super Manian, speaking of squawk alley this morning. Well, what we can say right now situation is very fluid at very dynamic. It's going to be very hard for me to talk about what the Konami is going to, you know, is going to be doing in the future. This point you know, perhaps, we'll talk a little bit more about it on June twenty fifth on the owning Skol. But I gotta tell you one thing, it doesn't matter what the economy is doing. What is growing is the ecommerce market? And like I said the parcel business is going substantially and driven by ecommerce and our investments in this space going to be the what makes a difference. Super Manian mentioned, the company reports earnings next month. So Dan says the options Marcus implying a big move for the stock between now. And then. Options, we can look out about a month and we can look at the June twenty eighth weeklies. And we can see that the Anthony Stroud. That's the call premium. And the put premium is implying about an eight percent move or about twelve dollars in either direction, and listen. It's great to get an update from president COO a few weeks out of their earnings. I think what the, the message there was that things are inflex things are fluid, and their guidance is going to be really important as we exit Q to so couple charge just to look at Mel, you said earlier. The stock is down forty percent from the two thousand eighteen all time, highs look at that right there. It's down about twenty percent just in the last six weeks alone. It's kind of getting towards that really important low from just about six months ago is about one hundred and fifty bucks. Look at five year basis, you look at one fifty one forty range is really, really big support here. Obviously getting a little overdone trading about ten times earnings. We know that those earnings growth has just ground to a halt right here. But really important, I guess, look at the price of options over the last five years, we're. Starting to get to a level where investors or at least operated are getting a little nervous here about a pretty much a potentially outsize move. I would say that amiss in a guide down for the second half of the year, and this dachshund making new lows. I mean it's going back to those lows from a few years ago. This move is interesting. And the reasoning makes sense on paper in that they have all these this network. They have facilities, etc. They get an extra day of use out of them, I think seven days a week. So they can get efficiencies out of this, and leverage them at the same time, serving the ecommerce market has been a very difficult market for them to sir. Particularly because of the last mile of shipment funny, you should say that now you typically the ones that asks the questions on this show. Yeah. Math and quick to questions is. I don't know the answer. Is it safe to say Melissa since the beginning of two thousand eighteen the ecommerce business has increased last eighteen months. Yes, fair to say, right? Is it also fair to say that the s&p five hundred's within five percent of its all time? Yes, it is. And why would FedEx, which is the B two hundred seventy five dollars? Stock in the beginning of twenty one fifty explain that one to me and to dance point, I gotta tell you. We're now trading where we traded on Christmas Eve, this is one of the few stocks, that's go back and tested that low. We don't hold one fifty five or so there folks, despite valuation, which is cheapest himse more for here would point out this sucker's headed back to the two thousand sixteen low, which is one

"America on June twenty eight seventeen seventy six the first draft of the declaration of independence, this handed him after that the British are literally coming on that same day, and it is one of those moments with headlines like that where this hanging in front of twenty thousand people truly becomes a footnote and at the beginning. One of the first things I did is I went to. Pulitzer prize winning author Joseph Ellis. And do you know the story about this plot to kill Washington? He said he knew the story heard of it. There was no modern book written on the subject that was a fully was a full book on it. And he said to me this is a book about George, Washington spies. He told me that you can find right now, exactly. How many slaves George Washington owned, but you'll never find all despise? And he told me that day by nature what you're searching for brab will forever be allusive. But he did take a shot at the best situation. You'll you'll get a book out of it at the worst. You'll have an adventure. And that was my goal. And that all that research has led us as you said to this first nonfiction book, which we called the first and spiracy 'cause truly was America's first conspiracy was the first conspiracy here the secret plot to kill George Washington. And most of the story takes place in New York. So that was the plot hatched there and an who were the conspirators. Yeah. The plot was hatched in New York. And you'll see that they of all people to kick it off. It's the governor of New York was one of the main masterminds behind who was the governor under British rule when he gets taken out of power. Needless to say, he is not happy. He wants his job back. He wants his power back in the best way to get that. If the take out this rebel army and who's leading the armies George Washington. But here's the thing that really blew my mind in this mystery, and and in this plot is George Washington at the time had his own private bodyguards. And what he has done is. He went to all of his top regiments. And if they give me your four best man he wanted what they call drilled men. The best of the best George Washington himself, narrowed it down to about fifty men and that became what they call the generals guard. They call them the commander's guards. But the name that actually stuck with a lifeguards it as part of their job with the guard, George Washington's life, and these were the men who turned on George Washington. These were the ones who are plotting against them. And I don't care if you become the greatest general, I don't care if you become the first president. Okay. How strong you're supposed to be. That is a moment that is devastating to George Washington. Take me back to what Washington was was facing leading kind of a ragtag army. Most people probably thought that this. This war was absolutely unwinnable. The the British army the greatest forces ever amassed in history. Mean must've been and he had he had that to deal with. And then all of a sudden now, he's finding treachery. Amongst the the people that you know, he's counting to be the most loyal to him. It must have been. So demoralizing. Yeah. You know, one of the first things Washington does is he creates and you're gonna love this. And I think the readers of this the listeners of the show because this is what I responded to this is what got me is Washington. Very quickly create the secret committee, and this committee is called the committee on conspiracies that's the name of it and eventually narrows down to three people that are part of the secret committee. One of them is John J one of them as governor Morris and one of them is Philip Livingston. And we all know John Jay becomes eventually at the end of the war, the first supreme court Justice. But at this moment in the war museum, ma'am. And he runs the committee on conspiracies and what they do is. They're investigating this plot against Washington and they're kicking down doors. They're investigating who's involved grabbing them from their houses, interrogating them. But what they're also doing at the time unknowingly, of course. But what they're doing. Make no mistake is there Bill. America's first counterintelligence agency. People think that today if you say ask historians where does the CIA what's the precursor to the CIA people say, oh, it's the it's not not at all. It all actually starts here on the revolutionary war seventeen seventy six when the committee on conspiracies is formed and those methods that they're using using civilians as opposed to using military people George Washington knows he needs a great offense. He has a great offense in the military or what he also knows. Is you need a great defense. Now, you need someone to tell you what's coming with intelligence and to this day NCAA headquarters right now in Langley Virginia. There is a room that is dedicated to John Jay who they call the founding father of counterintelligence starts all in this moment. But asks for George Washington what he's facing something that he's never seen before. And we love to tell the story. Let's be clear we love to tell that story. You just told right? The ragtag group. We love that word who came together, we believed in democracy. We held hands we dreamed and wished and click our heels hard enough, and we took down the greatest fighting force. The British that had ever existed at the time, and that's a wonderful story. But it's not the real story or a country founded on legends and myths and the legends and myths, we love most our own we love to say how easy it wasn't. How terrific it was. But as you said it was so correctly. It was not easy. It was a disaster. This war was a mess. And one of the things that happened is at the time. We think we're divided right now as a country we were just as divided back then at the time of seventeen seventy six in New York City there were nearly as many loyalists on the British side as there were patriots on the American side your neighbor, you didn't know if you were friends with them where they wanted to kill you in your sleep. Right. They could have been on the British side and one the end of you, and there was no different in our own military. We were divided there too. Because we were bunch of regiments, we weren't one big military. So the regiment from Connecticut, then you know, there was a regiment from. From Massachusetts thinking along with the regiment's from Virginia one of my favorite scenes in the book is this moment when the regiment's from Massachusetts, meet the regiments from Virginia, and they all meet in Harvard yard, they're all getting together. George Washington's there as well. And the regiments from Virginia they wear a kind of a frilly thing on the uniform. We didn't even have the same uniforms right today. We have one uniform for all of our military back, then some people were showing up at work shirts and every regiment had their own their own uniform, and they're making fun of these guys from Virginia. And of course, a fight breaks out. And they're all fighting each other and George Washington comes racing and on his horse jumps off the forest grabs. Two of the guys by the neck, and he's shaking them and fame basically have fighting with each other. We're on the same team. And if ever there were a metaphor for where we are today there it is. But again, as you said we Warren tied together. What your George Washington was facing was a giant mess at the time ten thousand troops. And this is at the time when the pod against George Washington. And it's happening ten thousand troops are descended on New York City to fight on the patriots side to fight the British all the wealthy people. They're out of town. They're like, I don't need this headache and ten thousand men descend upon New York City doing what of course, ten thousand men do when their wives and girlfriends aren't there. They want to gamble. They wanna drink. They wanna go see prostitutes and George Washington is a proper Virginian gentlemen. He's horrified by this. And when you look and see how he reacts immediately trying to get make order out of this chaos. The issues what they call general orders and his general orders are the rules of the day. There aren't you know, their army isn't even built he's trying to build it midstream right there and some of his first general orders say no gambling Washington hated gallon stopped drinking going to the prostitutes. It is total cast and there were no United States back. Then. George Washington had to build them by putting his arms around all this chaos in trying to pull us together that fame, you know, all these regiments finally trying to pull them all together. And make no mistake. It's a battle even within our own military. And in the midst of all of this is the secret plot to kill George Washington. That's raging in the background. So, you know, we love to tell the story that it was so easy. We tell our kids in school that it was so easy. Now, we all came together. That does nothing for us. What we do with our heroes. Today's we dip them in granite. And we make statues of them, but we kill them when we do that. They don't become people anymore. They just become statues. And we do them a disservice because it wasn't easy back then. And if it was easy. Why study at what's all more interesting to me? Is what you said that it was hard and match. What's something that's worth fighting for especially when it's hard. And I love that you get to see that in this book. I love the you get to see not just a secret plot against George Washington. But you get to see just how this war was one had this plot succeeded, and we'll get into more details about the nature of this plot. And and who was alternately behind it who funded in its cetera. And what the what the actual conspiracy was how they intended to kill Washington. But had it succeeded is it in your estimation. Fair to say had it succeeded. There would have been no United States. Yeah. You know, we when you read the first conspiracy. We do spend some time trying to say what happens because it begs the question, right? There's a secret plot to kill George Washington. You can't help but ask if he dies what happened to America. What happens to our? They're United States. We hit constitution to get a president. And I'll tell you my theory one of my theories, I think we could win because we were stubborn enough. And and you know, one of the things you see that. I think is so important is that George Washington he keeps having to retreat retreat and retreat retreat. The one thing he won't do is. He won't give up and I think that most Americans back then in the war just did not want to give up. So maybe we win. But here's where I think history would change is. I think George Washington's greatest legacy is not. But he's the president not that he won the war. Even his greatest legacy. Is that when the war was over what he did?.

"Justice league of America is a graduate of the university of Michigan and Columbia law school. He currently lives in Florida. His new book is another anti gravity device. You can't put it down. It's called the first conspiracy. The secret plot to kill George Washington. Brad meltzer. Welcome back to coast to coast AM. How are you? I'm good always great to be back. I gotta tell you after I finished with the escape artist. And we talked about that the last time you were on I gave that book to my mother-in-law to read and she's in her eighties. She's a voracious reader and then every morning at the breakfast table. That's all she wanted to talk about for weeks was the escape artists. And when she reads she'll highlight, and she writes in the margins and so forth. It's incredible. So in the first conspiracy while I know that that's what I'll be talking about at the breakfast table for the next month or so so thank you for that. I appreciate it. I appreciate you know, we've been working for the past few months on the sequel to it's you can tell her I heard here I am coming in. And obviously the book is now paperback. So she can even save some money for another copy terrific. We I like how you you play with an we've into your your books little arcane pieces of history you've talked about in previous books, the Lincoln assassination the secret code Thomas Jefferson used, but this is the first time you've really gone in depth with an historical piece of nonfiction. Why did you wait for so long? Yeah. This is as you mentioned, our first nonfiction book that I've ever done and the truth was is I never found a story that was big enough and good enough for an entire book and those who know me from history channel doing decoded and lost history. This is this book is really like the coded, but in book form, and when I found this story with nearly a decade ago. That's how long it's that. With me. I found this story in the footnotes, which is all where so many great secrets hide from our history. And I remember seeing some combination of those where it said the secret plot to kill George Washington. And my first thought was real is it fake? What is it? And and let's just be clear. It is real in seventeen seventy six. There was a secret plot to kill George Washington. When George George Washington found out about it gathered those responsible he built the gallows he took one of the co conspirators, and he. Hung him in front of twenty thousand people largest public execution at that point in North American history. George Washington brought the hammer down with like do not mess with me. I'm George Washington. I'm going to be on the money one day. That you know, and and you know for me. It was it was just set me on this path or thinking I have to write about that. How did no one? No the story. And this is a little known aspect about the revolutionary war and the birth of our nation. What was it like to dig into this piece of history? And why is it so shrouded in mystery? Yeah, let's deal with the second question. First a great question. How does no one? No it right. There's a secret Papa kill George Washington. And nobody knows it. And and obviously, I you know, that was the first question I had when you look at the date of one the hanging happened that gives you a big part of the answer the hanging took place on June twenty eight seventeen seventy six. Yes. What else was happening right then in America on June twenty eight seventeen seventy six the first draft of the declaration of independence, this handed him after that the British are literally coming on that same day, and it is one of those moments with headlines like that where this hanging in front of twenty thousand people truly becomes a footnote and at the beginning. One of the first things I did is I went to. Pulitzer prize winning author Joseph Ellis. And do you know the story about this plot to kill Washington? He said he knew the story heard of it.

And that all that research has led us as you said that his first nonfiction book, which we call the first conspiracy because it truly was America's first conspiracy. It was the first conspiracy here the secret plot to kill George Washington. And most of the story takes place in New York. So that was the plot hatched there and an who were the conspirators. Yeah. The pot was Ashton New York and you'll see that the of all people the kick it off. It's the governor of New York was one of the main masterminds behind who was the governor under British rule when he gets taken out of power. Needless to say, he's not happy. He wants his job back. He wants his power back in the best way to get that. It's the take out this rebel army and who's leading the armies George Washington. But here's the thing that really blew my mind and this mystery, and and in this plot is George Washington at the time had his own private bodyguards. And what he has done is.

These were the ones who are plotting against them. And I don't care if you become the greatest general, I don't care if you become the first president. Cow strong. You're supposed to be that is a moment. That is devastating George Washington. Take me back to what Washington was was facing leading kind of a ragtag army. Most people probably thought that this.

I think is so important is that George Washington he keeps having to retreat retreat and retreat retreat.

I think George Washington's greatest legacy is not. But he's the president not that he won the war. Even his greatest legacy. Is that when the war was over what he did?.
