I know that one Sir.

It was our own General Washington. It was the American Revolution. I don't know exactly when it happened, besides the fact it was during the Revolution, sometime between 1775-1783 I suppose (I hope thats specific enough). The reason? Some American troops revolted and after a tense standoff surrendered, and George Washington had them decimated. I think that's it, I don't know too much about it. I'll try to find more information but so far I haven't had any success.

3. Name the two opposing commanders.
