Christmas With the New Christy Minstrels: Complete album at
The New Christy Minstrels', "A Company Of Cowards"
The Lyrics:
Remember George at Valley Forge made the British boys behave.
Who They Mention:
Clearly a reference to George Washington, despite the historical inaccuracy of the line (Valley Forge was a training camp, not a battlefield. The American troops under Washington had no encounters there with British forces, hence no opportunity there to "make the British boys behave".).
