SuperStar ~ General Nathanael Greene!!
With all due respect to George Washington, a great American but a vastly overrated General, the American Revolutionary War was won by Nathanael Greene and Daniel Morgan.
From 1776 to 1780, the best that Washington had been able to do against the great resources of the British was a stalemate. There is no shame in that, but he also came perilously close to disaster and annihilation, in the Battle of New York, and in the Battle of Brandywine.
In 1780, the British invaded the Carolinas, scoring enormous victories at Charlestown and at the catastrophic Battle of Camden, against Benjamin Lincoln and Horrible Horatio Gates, respectively. Dixie was laid entirely open to British depredations and conquest.
It was then that Greene & Morgan came to the rescue. They reorganized the remnants of our shattered Army, coordinated with local Militias, and reconfigured our Southern Strategy dramatically, transitioning into Gorilla Warfare. They wore the Brits down...and out.
Greene and Morgan took command of the Dixie Army's shattered remnants in December, 1780.
The Invincible Lord Cornwallis, erstwhile Master of Dixie, surrendered 10 months later.
It was not a coincidence...And the War was over.
Random Political Thought of the Day
President Trump, compared to what the Democratic "leadership" would've done, based on their comments at the time, has done an awesome job of responding to The Chinese Plague.
But compared to what I would've done ~ based on my comments at the time!! ~ he, along with the rest of the government, and along with most State Governors, has done an horrifically terrible job, because he listened to idiots like Doctor Fauci, who insist on shutting everything down, rather than listen to what I've been saying since a month before this hit:
1 ~ It spreads too easily for any attempt to stop it completely to have a realistic chance.
2 ~ It's mortality rate is extremely low, comparable to the flu, for God's sake.
3 ~ We could save more lives by focusing our resources on the vulnerable.
4 ~ If we had let it run its course, we'd have Herd Immunity by now.
The Great Barrington Declaration?
It's what I've been saying all along.
