In our lesson this week, we’ll continue our discussion of Courtesy as our Warrior Personal Strength. This week, we will talk about George, General William Howe, and Lila the lost dog.
1777 was a tough year for George. He was commander of the Continental Army, leading American soldiers in the War for Independence. Their opponents were the British Army, led by General Howe.
In early October, George and his soldiers fought the British Army once more at Germantown, just north of Philadelphia. After a confusing battle in a heavy fog, they were beaten off. It was a long, weary march from Germantown back to their camp. A stray dog — a fox terrier — followed along with George and his soldiers as they trudged.
