I love this painting of George Washington http://pinterest.com/pin/24066179230806784 in prayer at Valley Forge during the American Revolutionary War. What a good example of an honorable leader who recognized his need to rely on a power greater than himself in the performance of his duty and defending the noble cause of liberty. "In God we trust."
Battle of King's Mountain, MAJ Patrick Ferguson, British Army, mortally wounded by Patriot mountain men militia. The Patriots defeated the Regulars and Loyalist militia in a battle that turned the tide in the South and the Revolution.
I heard the young man behind me talking. Of course, he was not supposed to be. We were drilling, no not a real battle, but in this business, you never know what could happen. He needed to practice like he played. A.L.M.
Sybil Ludington was a heroine of the American Revolutionary War. Her action was similar to that performed by Paul Revere, though she rode more than twice the distance of Revere and was only 16 years old at the time of her action.
