General Nathanael Greene and the American Revolution

Major General Nathanael Greene was a Quaker with little education or military experience who rose to become one of George Washington’s best battlefield commanders and heir apparent if something happened to Washington during the war. Faced with the difficulties of quartermaster general that led to battles with the Continental Congress, his fortitude saved the Continental Army from starvation. Where other generals failed, he succeeded in commanding the Southern Army and with his brilliant strategy, drove the British from their outposts to their final surrender at Yorktown, Virginia. But what did it cost this general from Rhode Island?
