The Battle of Monmouth - Washington finally decided to march his men from Valley Forge toward the retreating British. A 5,000 man force would move ahead, harassing the British rear until a larger body of 6,000 troops could join them. I learned that at the end of the battle, while the British had escaped, the Americans claimed victory in the Battle of Monmouth and Washington was lauded for his bravery.

Baron von Steuben was a Prussian officer who was recruited by Franklin to join the Continental army in 1777. He spent the winter at Valley Forge training Washington’s army and led them at the battle of Monmouth. The training in bayonet usage proved pivotal in the Stony Point battle. His work was indispensible to Washington’s effort, earning Von Steuben the position of Inspector General.
