Read an Excerpt

But these patriots had two things in their favor. Those who could shoot at all could shoot well, and every one of them was used to untold hardships and to facing perils such as were new to the well housed and well fed soldiers of King George III, sent over to subdue them. They were willing to fight until the last ditch and until the last charge of powder was used; nay, they proved, later on, that they could fight even after the last ditch was passed and the powder horn had long since been drained. "They did not understand when they were whipped," so one English writer expressed it—for the simple reason that they never considered the battle at an end so long as victory was not upon their side.
