Inscription.  On June 14, 1775, the Second Continental Congress, in session in Philadelphia, voted to organize, direct and supply a military effort to raise 10 companies of riflemen from Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia to fight the British. On June 15, 1775, Congress appointed George Washington Commander in Chief of the Continental Army and appointed 4 Major General Officers and 8 Brigadier General Officers with staff. A pay scale and standard ration was established and the Articles of War were adopted to govern the military. To ensure civilian control of the military, the Board of War and Ordinance was established in April 1776. Of the Army, Washington said, “Discipline is the soul of an army, it makes small numbers formable: procures success to the weak and esteem to all.”
