Washington was chosen to be the commander-in-chief of the American revolutionary forces in 1775. The following year, he forced the British out of Boston, lost New York City, and crossed the Delaware River in New Jersey and defeating the surprised enemy units later that year. As a result of his strategy, Revolutionary forces captured the two main British combat armies—Saratoga and Yorktown.
