For six months this quiet path was a congested thoroughfare. Express riders from Congress, civilians requesting passes, guards posted around the house, couriers rushing out with new orders, foreign officers seeking employment, continually jammed this road during the encampment.

At the center of the tumult was the Commander-in-Chief. From Headquarters, George Washington issued General Orders to the brigades, dictated eloquent warnings to Congress, and directed military operations from Georgia to Maine.
