Discussion: On June 28, 1778, General George Washington led the Continental Army in an attack against the British Army at the Battle of Monmouth in Monmouth County, New Jersey during the American Revolutionary War. In May of 1778, British troops, led by General Sir Henry Clinton, began evacuating from Philadelphia to New York, traveling over land through New Jersey. The Continental Army saw this as a perfect opportunity to strike. Ultimately, this battle ended in a draw as the Continental Army was able to hold the field, but the British were still able to escape to New York. However, this battle is considered a significant battle in the American Revolutionary War, as the Continental Army was able to hold its own against what was considered one of the best armies in the world. Additionally, this battle holds significance in weather history due to the impact heat may have had on the number of casualties in this battle.
