The papers of George Washington . Revolutionary war series. 17, 15 September - 31 October 1778
Describes how Washington moved his army north from White Plains, New York, into new positions that ran from West Point to Danbury, Connecticut. His purpose in doing so was threefold: to protect his army, to protect the strategically important Hudson highlands, and to shore up the equally vital French fleet anchored at Boston.
