The reflection upon my situation, and that of this Army, produces many an uneasy hour when all around me are wrapped in sleep. Few People know the predicament we are in... If I shall be able to rise superior to these, and many other difficulties which might be enumerated, I shall most religiously believe that the finger of Providence is in it. – General George Washington, 1777
