The Papers of George Washington, Revolutionary War Series, Volume 22: 1 August-21 October 1779 (Book)

Abstract: In Volume 22, Washington is focused on defending West Point, N.Y., and launching whatever strikes he could against the British forts on the Hudson River and bring his operations on the western frontier to a successful conclusion. Though not in tactical command of the devastating successful expedition against the hostile tribes of the Six Nations, Washington, particularly in August, had to dedicate a substantial portion of his time to supervising logistical support for the expedition and defending himself charges of failing to properly support the campaign. Washington's overriding concern in August, other than strengthening the defenses of West Point, was the long anticipated arrival of British army reinforcements that would enable the enemy to renew their attack up the Hudson. After Washington pushed his defensive preparations into high gear, intelligence reports convinced him that the British reinforcements were too few to enable the enemy to launch an offensive. The prospect of the arrival of the powerful French fleet of Vice Admiral d'Estaing on the American coast promised an opportunity to overcome British naval superiority. Washington first designed a limited attack on the British outposts surrounding New York City. Then, after receiving official confirmation from Congress of the arrival of the French admiral on the American coast, Washington planned a major attack on New York itself; an attack, as the letters in this volume show, which Washington designed to be decisive, to drive the British from North America, and potentially end the war.
