After being appointed Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army by Congress, Washington proceeded to Boston where he took command of the assembled militia and the seige of the British at Boston.  His first task was to instill some form of organization upon the army.  This included issuing general orders to implement sanitary measures and discipline among the encamped soldiers.  This also included writing extensive letters to Congress and to the various state governors and legislatures to arrange for the supply of provisions to the army, the appointment of officers, and the planning of the overall strategy for fighting the British.
