George Washington could criticize the militia in the sharpest, most condemning terms, but, as Mark Kwasny argues, the general also embraced a strategy that depended on the effectiveness of the militia.

They cooperated effectively with the Continental Army, gathering military intelligence, serving as a defensive screen, and at critical times reinforcing the main army

This dissertation is a study of the irregular warfare around New York City between 1775 and 1783. The narrative concentrates on the various roles the militia performed in the fighting around this British stronghold, including suppression of Loyalists, defending coasts and towns, harassing British posts and detachments, reinforcing the Continental Army, skirmishing with British forces moving through the countryside, and gathering intelligence. It also describes the successful efforts by the state governments of New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut to control the militia and define its roles, and examines the extensive part George Washington played in the employment of the militia on its own and in coordination with the Continental Army. In addition, I discuss the Continental Congress' participation in the employment of the militia
