1776 · The Battle of Brooklyn, the Largest Battle in the American Revolutionary War

Age 39

After the British left Boston, George Washington correctly anticipated an invasion of New York City and split forces between Brooklyn and Manhattan. The morning of August 27, 1776, the British advanced toward the marshy American camp. American General, William Alexander, Lord Sterling, led 400 Maryland soldiers against thousands of British troops led by General Charles Cornwallis. The “Maryland 400” were unable to defeat such numbers and surrendered. The British killed and captured over one thousand Americans, however, they failed to capture Washington and his army. Allowing Washington to escape changed the course of American history. After occupying Brooklyn for seven years, the British surrendered in 1783. The Maryland Monument, erected in 1895, now stands in Brooklyn in honor of the “Maryland 400” who fought that day. A quote by George Washington on the monument reads, “Good God! What brave fellows I must this day lose.” The loss of this battle helped win the Revolutionary War.
1783 · A Free America
