Newburgh Conspiracy

He stopped a overthrow of congress at during the Newburgh Conspiracy. After saying the following quote, the men notice a disarming hint of vulnerability from their stern leader. "Gentleman, you must pardon me, for I have not only grown gray but almost blind in service to my country."
