George Washington was "first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen," according to Light Horse Harry Lee. In the United States, he is known as the Father of our Country. But Washington was not always victorious. In August of 1776, George Washington suffered a humiliating defeat at the Battle of Long Island. But Washington did not surrender at Long Island; instead, he ordered a strategic retreat and adopted a Fabian strategy for the remainder of the Revolutionary War. It was because George Washington kept his army intact and lived to fight another day that he went on to become such a legend - not because he always had victories from the start. "If you are experiencing defeat today, your defeat is not going to be permanent - unless you let it... Let's let George Washington inspire all of us today to press on to the victories that are to come." Music Credit: TJ's Bar Fight courtesy of John Fulford Music
