George Washington

Here's an interesting story about George Washington's leadership and character in his effort to maintain the support of angry and mutinous troops from the NYTimes

In early 1783, with Revolutionary War victory in sight but peace uncertain, Washington and the Continental Army bivouacked at Newburgh, N.Y. Troops were enraged by Congress’s failure to provide promised back pay and pensions. Rumors of mutiny abounded.
