  5. Bella, are you reading anything?

    In that letter from George Washington, he described what happened when militiamen left the continental troops, which ended up being surrounded by ... guess who? ... British troops. What do you think happened to those continental troops?

    Do you think Washington was happy or upset by all this? Do you think he believed that battle could have ended differently if the militiamen had had the weapons and training and were part of the regular troops?

    Now think!

  13. I guess I was assuming you knew what the Continental Congress was and what they did. Bad assumption on my part.

    Read several of these articles so you'll know what the Continental Congress was, why they existed, and why General George Washington would be asking them anything.
