British Entering New York

The British decided to move away from the more rebellious New England and concentrate on the middle colonies where it was felt that they had more support. The New York campaign was actually a very successful period for the British army who effectively drove the Continental Army out of the area. Unfortunately, the successes were not fully followed up and Washington was able to make a daring winter attack at Trenton which restored much of American morale and purpose.
