Did You Know?
Revolutionary War veteran Joseph Plumb Martin, in his 1830 memoir, recounted the surrender of the British, “we were marched on to the ground and paraded on the righthand side of the road, and the French forces on the left. We waited two or three hours before the British made their appearance; they were not always so dilatory, but they were compelled at last, by necessity, to appear, all armed, with bayonets fixed, drums beating, and faces lengthening.”
