Historical Moment from the Governor David Emanuel-Adam Brinson Chapter
During the American Revolution, George Washington was fearless in battle. He rode forward to take charge of the collapsing lines at the Battle of the Monongahela on July 9, 1755.
While riding along the ranks looking to steady the men, Washington had two horses shot out from under him and four bullet holes shot through his coat. At the Battle of Princeton (January 3, 1777), Washington rode forward on his white charger as he led his soldiers in a successful counterattack against the British.
