What if your boss was George Washington?

What if your boss was George Washington? Would you dare ask for a promotion? May 1776 “I wish my ability to deserve [a promotion] was equal to my inclination to merit. How far I have succeeded in my endeavors, I submit to your Excellency’s better judgment,” Brigadier General Nathanael Greene writes to George Washington in May 1776 after Washington had entrusted him to command Boston after the British military evacuated it.

“I feel myself strongly attached to the cause, to the Continental Congress, and to your Excellency’s person,” Greene concludes. #TBT http://www.revolution240.com http://ow.ly/i/emY0u
