In December 1799, Washington fell ill after spending several hours inspecting his farms on horseback in snow and freezing rain. He would die several days later on December 14, 1799: his health weakened further by his multiple doctors bleeding him dry using a psudo-science technique dubbed 'bloodletting' in an attempt to heal the illness.

===US-British Relationship===
  +
American and British relationships remained hostile initially, as the British Empire refused to acknowledge the USA as a nation. The War of 1812 erupted when the British kidnapped American sailors in a policy known as impressment. The British tried to justify this action by claiming these Americans defected from the British Empire, but the USA saw this as an act of war.

  +
The USA and UK had minor skirmishes and border disputes as Canada and USA expanded westward. The UK stayed neutral in the American Civil War; not allying with the Confederates as they didn't want to risk war with the Union: despite the Confederate's attempts to have the UK and France join their cause. The USA declared war on the German Empire in WWI as Germany attacked US ships supplying the Allies. The USA joined the Allies in both World Wars, creating a military alliance with the UK that still lasts today.

The battle starts with Napoleon and 4 Grand Armée soldiers coming over a hill looking above General Washington's militia. Napoleon's lieutenant hands him a telescope so that he can get a better view on their situation. Below, Washington looks up at Napoleon's small regiment just as he gives the signal for his soldiers to advance. Washington commands his men to arm up their Brown Bess Muskets and begin firing as Napoleon's lieutenant gives the order to open fire with their Charleville muskets, killing one militia man.[[File:Bluedead.png]] The milita men return fire with their Brown Bess muskets, also killing a French soldier.
