  A Brief Profile of the Continental Army - The Army of 1777-1780
However, essentially all enlistments for the army of 1777 were initially for three years or “for the war.” The crippling practice of the end-of-year wholesale reorganizations would finally be at an end.

Based on the long-term enlistments facilitated by the establishment of 1777, the mid-war lull following the cessation of a Canadian invasion threat, and the conclusion of the Philadelphia Campaign at the Battle of Monmouth in June 1778, the composition of the main army achieved an unprecedented degree of stability and resultant professionalism.
