William Howe was a British general during the American revolution. he was the brother of Richard Howe, the admiral during the revolution. general Howe replaced general gage in Boston in 1776. when he was forced out of Boston by Washington's siege guns, he prepared another offensive. in the summer of 1776, he struck hard blows at New York City and Brooklyn, and scattered Washington's army. in 1776, he was tired of the war, so he retired home and was replaced by general Clinton.
