On June 14, 1778, the British army prepared to leave Philadelphia behind, and relocate to New York City. They destroyed unservicable equipment and stock, and burn unfinished ships, so as not to give the patriots any useful resources. British General Sir Henry Clinton (pictured) knows his army will encounter New Jersey militia, and in all likelihood, George Washington’s Continental army, as they cross New Jersey. This will come to pass at the Battle of Monmouth on June 28.
