In this charming historical novel, Stanley Weintraub sets forth the tale of one of George Washington's most memorable Christmases. Some British troops remained in America in 1783, on orders to stay until ratification of the peace terms. Awaiting that word, George Washington longed to go home for Christmas, but late in November of 1783, the General was still many miles from home. Before he could return to Mount Vernon, he had one last mission to accomplish for the new nation. He had to reoccupy New York City, which the British troops were finally going to leave. Then the long war would really be over.
