Gen. Horatio Gates:
In eleven days' time the enlistments run out. Your men will not attack a fly before then. Why should they? They need only sit tight and go home.

Gen. George Washington:
Well, sir, I waited for you to broach this. What do you think?



Gen. Horatio Gates:
You would not wish to know, sir.



Gen. George Washington:
Then you have objections.



Gen. Horatio Gates:
Many.



Gen. George Washington:
Would you specify them?



Gen. Horatio Gates:
Gladly. Firstly, in order to attack, one needs an army. You do not have an army. Secondly, in order to attack, one needs soldiers. Your men are not soldiers. Thirdly, your men always go one in direction. To attack requires the other direction. Shall I continue?

Gen. Horatio Gates:
Surrender. This revolution is over.



Gen. George Washington:
So we surrender. We weigh the pros and cons and reason prevails. But you see, sir, I am an unreasonable man as well as a poor soldier. But you are right. My men are not soldiers. They are lads. Sixteen, seventeen, eighteen. They run away. They fear the Hessians as they fear death. All this is true. Yet they have put their trust in me. They could have deserted. Thousands have. But these lads have not. They remain with me. And I, not you, General Gates, *I* command this army, and if I, a bumbling Virginia farmer, should decide to lead them into Hell, they will follow me into Hell.
