ACI Commander in Chief

George Washington's political sympathies shifted over the years, as he became increasingly frustrated with the oppression the British inflicted on the colonies. He became an avid supporter of a swelling revolution against the crown and, in June of 1775, bested his opponent, the Templar Charles Lee, to become Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army at the Continental Congress ceremony in Philadelphia.

After giving a humble acceptance speech, Washington was introduced to the Assassin Connor by their mutual acquaintance, Samuel Adams. The introduction, however brief, was the foundation of a nation-shaping relationship between the pair.
