Lord George Germain, until 1770 known as Lord George Sackville, became Secretary of State for the American Department on November 10, 1775. The whole of his public life was embittered and conditioned by the national memory of his court martial and conviction in 1760, on the charge of disobedience of orders at the Battle of Minden (August 1, 1759). (Ref: G.S. Brown. The Court Martial of Lord George Sackville. Whipping Boy of the Revolutionary War. 1952.).
