Battle of Monmouth
In the Battle of Monmouth, American soldiers attacked the British from behind, winning for the Americans an important victory.
Hearing of the alliance between France and the United States, the British army determined to evacuate Philadelphia and march through New Jersey to New York. When the British army had arrived at Monmouth, New Jersey, on its way to New York, its rear was attacked by General Washington and a severe engagement took place, much to the advantage of the Americans.
