Episode 141 Congress Returns to Philadelphia

March 22, 2020

Congress returns from its removal to Baltimore after the fear of British occupation of Philadelphia passes.  The new session approves a new American flag on June 14, 1777.  Congress also promotes new generals.  It must deal with an influx of French officer applicants that it does not want, but also does not want to offend France.  Finally, after several months, Congress once again leaves Philadelphia after the British threaten another occupation.
