Long Island Redcoats

RedcoatEleven score and a long dozen years ago today, Redcoats landed at Long Island.

Wrote MadMonarchist last year:

Many years ago it was the Long Island campaign that first made me question the "standard version" of the American Revolution. I was amazed at how Washington could be beaten again and again, retreat again and again and yet still be described as some sort of military genius for "ensuring the survival of his army" or some such notion.
