9781331268352: The Struggle for American Independence, Vol. 2 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Struggle for American Independence, Vol. 2

There was only one method of conquering America, the method which modern British generals have always had so clearly in mind; and that was to attack and utterly destroy the organized army of the enemy by defeating it in battle, relentlessly pursuing it, devastating the country which gave it support, capturing and imprisoning or executing the heads of the political party which directed the army and guided the sentiment of the people, capturing also large numbers of the patriot people themselves, destroying all their provisions and means of livelihood, and imprisoning the women and children to compel the submission of the men still at large. One can understand that such methods as these might have given Great Britain and the loyalists the military and political control of the Atlantic seaboard states, with the remnant of the patriot party seeking a precarious refuge in the western Wilderness.

But Howe pursued the reverse of this course. Instead of continuously following up the patriots and wearing them out, he gave them long periods Of rest, for Six or nine months, which exactly suited their purposes; for their militia would not keep the field continuously, and were Willing to Serve only for short periods and special occasions.
