Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from General Maxwell's Brigade of the New Jersey Continental Line, in the Expedition Against the Indians, in the Year 1779

Washington, then at his headquarters at Middlebrook, now Bound Brook, New Jersey, a report of all these acts of rapine, cruelty and murder, and explicitly ordered him to take effectual measures for the protection of the inhabitants and the chastisement of the savages. Without a moment's delay, he planned the early and severe punishment of the brutal foe.

On the 4th of March, Washington wrote to Governor George Clinton, of New York, informing him secretly of an expedition which he proposed to send into the Indian country, and asking what number of frontiersmen and rangers he could furnish for the contingent of troops required. Two days afterward, he wrote to major-general Horatio Gates, and offered him the command of the force he intended to detail for this enterprise. Unmindful of the cool treatment he had received from this haughty soldier on the west bank of the Delaware during the dreadful winter of 1776, forgetful that he had been a party to the miserable Conway cabal, and remembering only in his pure and patriotic soul that Gates had won some glory at Burgoyne's surrender, he offered him the supreme command of this important expedition. This forgiving act did not merit the rough refusal which he received.
