• During the Battle of Germantown, there
was a brief cease-fire when a little
terrier was seen wandering between the
American and British lines. British
General Howe's dog had gotten loose.
It was taken to George Washington to
keep as a trophy, but instead he took it
to his tent, fed and brushed him, then
formally had the little dog returned
under a flag of truce.

    • The US military during the revolution did everything in their power to look like a legitimate nation. They went to great lengths to follow traditional standards, as they were trying to be seen as a legitimate nation, having a fully functional government at the ready to take power.
