G. Washington --- 1754 (On the skirmish against the French & Indians at Jumonville Glenn that started the war.)
The first of many times over the next 30 years when he would be under fire, yet never wounded.
"I fortunately escaped without any wound, for the right wing, where I stood,..."
I read not long ago, that he kept a journal or diary on the conflict. He would never let it be published. He finally allowed a friend of his to read; but later he said to burn, or otherwise destroy it. The friend disobeyed him, and wrote a book, using some passages from it, after GW died. Of course, we wouldn't ever know GW's side of the events, if this man had 'obeyed' him!
Truly a man of Providence! He came through battles with numerous bullet holes through his coat, had multiple horses shot out from under him in a single battle; and even his "mistake" in opening fire on the French without provocation, initiated a series of events that led to the French losing their grip on the future U.S. and the American Revolution.
