  • This is the episode that discusses the Articles of Confederation, the precursor of the United States Constitution.

    General Washington plans a major attack, an attack that is intended to show the French that America is worthy of them Allying themselves with America. Washington relives General Lee of his command when he spots his soldiers retreating, and instead takes the soldiers back into battle. Although the battle is a stalmate, the British troops finally begin to respect the American forces.

    Nothing regarding the Articles of Confederation is finally resolved, but the delegates were pleased that Washington did so well in the recent battle.

    General Washington courtmarshalled General Lee for disobeying his orders and the war continued looking forward to the coming French troops.
