  • Ow
  • We will escape from the British!
  • We have 3 options: Keep fighting and get killed, surrender, which we are NOT doing,or sneak past the British and risk getting caught.
  • We are approaching the British warships! We must be absolutely silent if we want to escape! Is that understood?
  • Yes Sir!
  • After the harsh and bloody battle of Valcour Island, many American soldiers are either dead or wounded from fighting with the British.
  • The American captains must decide what the best option for their depleted and weakened fleet is.
  • Yay!
  • The next morning...
  • The officers agree to try to escape the large and powerful British fleet. To do this, they will have to sneak directly past the British warships. 
  • WHAT?! Impossible! How did our fleet not see them escape? We must find them!
  • Um, General? The American fleet has disappeared!
  • *Crickets*
  • Arnold's fleet must be completely silent  or they could be caught and killed by the British.
  • The Americans have successfully and safely escaped the British without being caught! The escape of Arnold's brave fleet will fuel the flames of the American Revolution and keep it alive.
  • We have escaped the British! 
  • The British sailors don't realize that Arnold's fleet is gone until morning, infuriating General Carleton and giving the Americans a head start.
