Lol. We had a classroom debate over this a few days ago in history. Personally, I think it is easier to argue for leaving. All of those who picked to stay formed the basis of their arguments on the fact that the war is already over and we know now the importance of it.

Exactly. Leaving would've been the easier path. Good thing Washington used public executions to terrify his men into staying.

You have to give him credit. We went into Valley Forge a disheveled mess, and we came out a matured fighting force.

I think von Steuben deserves slightly more credit than Washington, but Washington does too.

I have a test on this tomorrow, you would think that I would mention the training and discipline by Steuben...... Yes, I agree, he was largely to thank for the fighting force that steamed out of Valley forge.
