Harding in Morris County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The Pennsylvania Line
At Monmouth, which began as an American calamity and ended no worse than a draw, Pennsylvanians held the American positions during the initial retreat until Washington put things to rights.
Anthony Wayne, who commanded the Second Brigade, wrote of his men:
I would risk my soul that they would sell their lives or liberties at too dear a rate for Britons to make any purchase.
