Side-stepping the David Cameron reference: what does that negotiation do for you? Does it impact the intervention level? And how does that work? Is there an arbitrary limit after which the French come wading ashore, or do higher numbers lead to higher probability of intervention? Curious to know how well you can predict the remainder of the happy days until the cheese-eating surrender monkeys start mucking up your 'Pacification for Proper Taxation' campaign.

If you can cover the southern ports up to Philadelphia, or at least Richmond, you can make the South fairly hard to crack. The French have the same problem you've had the whole war... supply bases. If you can keep the harbors out of their control, and have a good defensive barrier at the northernmost edge of your dug-in line, that's probably your best holding move. But yeah, it's tough to win with the British once the rest of Europe starts to show up. The French are bad enough, but once the Spanish and Dutch dog-pile in, your days of flexibility are over.

That fort in the French and Indian war that is out in no-mans land is Fort Duquesne. I remember this very well because of how dumb I felt when I learned how to properly pronounce it. I was waaay off.

It definitely looks like Philadelphia was Washington's intended target... I'd fear his possible return to New York. I think that is what I would do.
Nice touch on the battle of the two Thomases.

Looks good, I believe. I know you say that the tide will turn against you once the French and other Continentals start messing with your policing actions, but for now you seem to be doing an excellent job keeping His Majesty's loyal subjects safe from the revolutionary rabble-rousers.
Looking forward to your triumphant entry into New York City next turn, but must admit to some trepidation caused by the rather large (and green-pipped) American armies in Pennsylvania.
