Did You Know?


On June 27, 1781, a French soldier of the Royal Deux-Ponts regiment wrote in his journal, “As soon as we reached another camp we were immediately surrounded by Americans. Among them one saw very few male persons however but only women folk: if one saw a man among them it was unfailingly an old man or a cripple because all men folk from their 14th until their 60th year had to join the colors.”
