What made Anthony Wayne an "unlikely general"?
He was not President Washington's first choice to lead the army against the Indians in 1792.
A womanizer, heavy drinker, and spend-thrift who had suffered a physical and mental breakdown fighting in the last year of the American Revolution, he had just been removed from Congress for voter fraud. But Washington took a chance on Wayne and the rest is history!
Here's one more blog I wrote about "Unlikely General" for the Yale University Press Blog.
