Fate of the mutineers?[edit]

For a supposedly good article, this is missing an explanation of what actually happened to the mutineers, and who other than Congress reacted. Were their demands ever addressed? (If not, why didn't they just follow Congress to Princeton?) What did military authorities (Washington and commanders nearer Philadelphia) do? Magic♪piano 00:20, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

I wondered the same thing. Did the soldiers ever get paid? I also wonder why they weren't paid in the first place. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Punstress (talkcontribs) 20:23, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
