"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus
Nice article, good find.
I can't get enough of that story. Supposedly Washington met some of those Indians many years later, and they told him how special they thought he was. This is the first I heard that they stopped firing on him.
Misguided motives for politically correct education have cut a deadly swath through public school textbooks, resulting in less and less information about the Founders.
If anyone thinks this is accidental, look again at WHO AND WHAT is doing it. Another slimey tentacle of liberalism and socialism.
I've always said George Washington was one of our greatest citizens and barring none our greatest President,and I haven't changed my opinion !!!
At the Battle of Princeton, New Jersey, January 3, 1777, as his troops were being driven back, early in the engagement, Washington on his white horse rode in front of his faltering troops to encourage them to hold firm. By doing this he put himself between his troops and the British who were less than 40 yards away.
The Britsh formed ranks and fired as did the Americans. Hundreds of muskets and rifles discharged with Washington riding between all of them. Gunsmoke obscured the scene and a Continental staff officer felt certain that Washington had been killed or wounded as it seemed impossible for anyone to escape unscathed.
A few moments later, Washington emerged upon his horse and rode to safety. Within minutes his forces regained their composure, advanced and defeated the British troops in their front.
The rest is history.
The left would deprive us of our heroes and our common sense, if they were to have their way.
