George Washington Meeting With Congressional Committee at Valley Forge

As if Washington did not have enough problems, while encamped at Valley Forge Washington faced what has become known as the “Conway Cabal” which consisted of a number of delegates to the Continental Congress working secretly behind the scenes with some military officers to try to have Washington replaced as Commander-in-Chief.  When Washington heard of it, he quietly gathered information both in his defense and as to the individuals who were the real cause of supply difficulties for the army.  Thus when a committee of Congress appeared at Valley Forge to conduct an investigation, they went away stronger than ever in their support of Washington, with Washington having even won over his critics among the committee.
