A Hard-Fought Victory at Monmouth

Learn how Washington secured victory from the British at Monmouth from the people who were there.

Perceptions of Battle provides a new perspective on the Battle of Monmouth from the first-person accounts of those who took part in the battle.

After spending a difficult winter at Valley Forge, George Washington led the Continental Army in pursuit of the British Army moving from Philadelphia to New York City. On June 28, 1778, the army caught up with the British and defeated them at Monmouth Court House.

Washington’s success solidified his position as the face of the Revolutionary effort. While the Congress was often ineffectual or even nonexistent, Washington and his army became the symbol of the Revolution.

J. R. Dacus has compiled the perspectives of the soldiers who were there that day in order to better understand the impact this victory had on American morale.
