Best Answer

George Washington was in charge of the Continental Army in the American Revolution. Many of the troops only joined the army because they trusted and admired Washington. On December 25, 1776, Washington's troops rowed across the Delaware River to New Jersey where they attacked the Hessians at Trenton. The Americans captured and killed over 900 Hessians and seized much needed supplies. In September of 1777 General Washington fought against the British general Howe at the Battle at Brandywine. Howe was able to defeat Washington, but failed in capturing him. During the Winter at Valley Forge, Washington kept his troops together and encouraged them to keep their pride in being Americans. Lieutenant Colonel John Brooks wrote that the army stayed together because of "Love for the County." The troops also stayed for love of Washington. Private Samuel Downing even went as far as to say that the soldiers would "sell their lives for him." In the Battle of Yorktown, the last major battle of the war, Washington led his troops from the north of the Chesapeake Bay to trap General Cornwallis on the peninsula. Washington and his French allies bombarded Yorktown until Cornwallis finally surrendered.
