Continental army

The Continental Army was a military-strategic army assembled by the Continental Congress in an attempt to further strengthen their side of the war against the British. By decision of the Congress on July 14, 1775, the Continental Army was created so that their military attempts were more coordinated and did more damage in the revolt of the Thirteen Colonies against Great Britain. The Continental Army was led by General George Washington, who was later to be the first President of the United States.
