Synopsis >

As the rebellion escalates into full-fledged war, the newly formed Continental Congress establishes a Continental army and appoints George Washington to Commander-in-Chief. The army surrounds the British troops occupying Boston, and Britain sends additional troops and its three best generals to take over command. In spite of these tactics, the Continental army’s assault from Dorchester Heights forces the British troops and loyalists to evacuate the city.
