June 14, 1775 - On
this day, after almost 2 months of battles between independent colonial
militias and British troops, the Second Continental Congress approved
the creation of a common army to defend the colonies, the Continental
Army. The following day, the Congress named George Washington as
commander-in-chief of the Army, composed of some 27,000 militiamen. Happy 235th birthday to the United States Army!
