Aug. 1776-George Washington gives his me

Aug. 1776-George Washington gives his men a pep talk before the Battle of Long Island. “The time is now near at hand, which must determine whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves. Whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their houses and farms are to be pillaged and destroyed, and consigned to a state of wretchedness from which no human efforts will deliver them. The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army . . . Let us then rely on the goodness of our cause, and the aid of the Supreme Being, in whose hands victory is to animate and encourage us to great and noble actions.” http://ow.ly/i/eD2vK
