Summary
One of George Washington's most able subordinates, Anthony Wayne's military performance during and after the Revolutionary war is a story that needs to be more widely known
Summary
In the spring of 1792, President George Washington chose “Mad” Anthony Wayne to defend America from a potentially devastating threat. A spendthrift, womanizer, and heavy drinker who had just been ejected from Congress for voter fraud, Wayne was an unlikely savior. Yet this disreputable man raised a new army and, in 1794, scored a decisive victory
