Momentum, Meaning and Myth
America's first winter looked like it's last. The spirit of the Declaration of Independence, less then six months old, was still fresh. But the Revolution was going very poorly. General Washington had already lost nine out of ten troops. Powerful British forces had overtaken New York, cutting a wedge in the middle of the former colonies. Retreat across the Delaware River was the only option as the British set their sights on Philadelphia.
