All has gone well the last 30 days. The main army is encamped at New York and the northern front has settled into winter quarters. The main rebel army has appeared at West Point although we believe any further actions by the rebels to be foolish and will not worry. In the south with better weather year around, it appears the war will not quiet down. Colonel Brown set an ambush in the swamps near Charleston and a rebel force stumbled upon them. Although they manage to set their artillery battery and cause more casualties, the enemy retreated and Colonel Brown fulfilled his mission to cover Charleston. Another rebel force under Colonel Moultrie attempted an attack at Savannah but with the coastal guns at our disposable we inflicted good casualties although the enemy is still in the field. However Brig General Lord Francis Rawdon has arrived in Savannah with a southern army and General Haldimand is planning an all out attack on the enemy forces now while holding superior numbers. Another force of enemy has been spotted at Philadelphia. There intention are unknown as they avoided battle last time. They may be trying to sneak past our pickets and link up with the main army at West Point. Regardless General Cornwallis is attacking to force them out of the region.
-General Haldimand attacks at Savannah

The north front as of December, 1776. General Washington holds a strong force at Hartford as well.
Southern front. We hold the major ports while the rebels control the interior.
This treasonous rebel is appealing to our old enemy France for assistance. They are desperate.
We have inflicted almost 2 to 1 in casualties and hold the majority of objectives. But our enemy controls the majority of the strategic towns and has a lead in victory points because of it.
