The British must be even hotter in their red coats!
I feel like i'm in an oven!
Onward to Monmouth Court House!
Why of course General Lee! The brigade is yours!
I changed my mind, I would like to lead the Advance Brigade!
The British are leaving Philadelphia, loaded withs supplies. George Washington has larger troop numbers as well. He decides to lead a sneak attack, with the advance brigade leading. Charles less doesn't like the idea.
The baggage train has already left! We must attack now!
The advance brigrade travels to Monmouth in the severe heat, George Washington warns Lafayette of the conditions and advises him to take it slow.
HE DID WHAT?
Soldier, what are you doing?
A retreat was ordered by General Lee, Sir
Charles Lee changes his mind about leading the brigade and convinces Lafayette that his "honor and fortune" are in Lafayette's hands. The Advance Brigade is now led by Charles Lee.
The brigade leaves late from camp and rushes into battle. Charles Lee is grossly unprepared
NO!... I MEAN YES!
Charles Lee ordered a retreat, which George Washington was outraged over. Lafayette took the lead again.
SOMEONE GET LAFAYETTE!
Already fighting, sir.
The battle of Monmouth was the longest in the Revolutionary War. Men died from the heat, and in the end the battle was a draw with 365 wounded or killed American Soldiers and 358 British.
