Summary
"The winter of 1779 to 1780 would mark Washington's darkest hour where he contemplated the army coming apart from lack of food, money, six years of war, desertions, mutiny, the threat of a devastating attack by the British, and incredibly, a plot to kidnap him. Yet Morristown would mark a turning point"-- Provided by publisher.
