Revolutionary War historian J.L. Bell described George Washington’s first months as Continental Army commander-in-chief. Washington arrived in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in July 1775 and made the town his headquarters until April 1776. It was there that he learned to work with his generals and the Continental Congress while refining his strategy against the British, who were encamped in nearby Boston. This talk was part of a symposium held at George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate. close
