I have heard the bullets whistle; and believe me, there is something charming in the sound.
After returning from a battle during the Revolutionary War.
[For a general he was quite the bad-ass. He had horses shot out from under him. His coat had numerous bullet holes in it. His accomplishments as a young officer were rather daring as well. To say that Washington was “highly regarded” by his men and country would be a huge understatement. My school history books did not do him justice.–Joe]
