After defeating the Continental Army under the command of their Commander-in-Chief, George Washington, at the battle of Whit Plains, British General William Howe looked to capture the last American stronghold, Fort Washington, on Manhattan. The Battle of Fort Washington was a decisive British victory and the entire garrison of 3,000 men were forced to surrender.
