George Washington famously lost more battles than he won as a battlefield commander during the Revolutionary War, and he has often been presented as a better administrator than a tactician.  His performance during the 1776-1777 Trenton-Princeton campaign,however, was brilliant by any standards and is still taught to cadets at military academies today. Edward G. Lengel, author of General George Washington: A Military Life, tells the story of this campaign and its place in Washington's military legacy. After his lecture, Ed will be available to sign copies of his books, First Entrepreneur, and a limited number of General George Washington: A Military Life.
