Script Details

***Please submit a custom demo*** 

5 October 1781,

That night we were ordered to help the engineers lay out trenches. It was a dark and rainy night. A man came alone to us. This stranger inquired what troops we were, talked familiarly with us for a few minutes and went off. He returned later. By the officers calling him "Your Excellency,” we discovered it was George Washington.

The next night we were ordered back to finish the trenches. The troops were ready with shovels, but waited to dig until after Washington had struck a few blows with a pickax so that it might be said, “General Washington with his own hands first broke ground at the Siege of Yorktown.”

The ground was broken. By daylight the men had covered themselves from the danger of the enemy’s shot. As soon as it was day, the enemy saw their mistake and began to fire as they ought to have done earlier. Their shot had no effect. Ours did. The whole number, American and French was ninety-two cannon. I was in the trenches the day the batteries were first fired. I felt a secret pride swell my heart as I saw our flag raised majestically in the very faces of our foes. A simultaneous discharge of all the guns followed. The French troops shouted, ‘Huzzah for the Americans!’”
