how did general washington trick general cornwallis
Here's one trick Washington played on Cornwallis:
"Washington was beginning to be known as the “Gray Fox” for his ability to slip away and elude the British. Rather than stay and fight a pitched battle with Cornwallis, he pulled yet another trick out of his hat. This time he left a cadre to keep fires going as if a host of troops too numerous for Cornwallis to tackle was encamped for the night. The next morning when British Rangers approached the camp they found nothing but dying embers. Therefore, there was no second Battle of Trenton and the fox hunt was back on."
