9-16-1776 “They were opposed with spirit

9-16-1776 “They were opposed with spirit,” American George Clinton writes about the four-hour skirmish at Harlem Heights. Even though the redcoats outnumber them two to one, the Continentals push back the British three times. “I consider our success in this small affair, [at Harlem] at this time, almost equal to a victory. It has animated our troops, gave them new spirits, and erased every bad impression the retreat from Long Island, &c., had left on their minds.” http://ow.ly/i/eErx1
