Subject: Second QOTD for Sunday February 12 (Bonus day!)

I decided to do something a little different today. This quote is from An Echo in the Bone Pre-publication limited edition booklet. Copyright 2009, by Diana Gabaldon.

"On July 4th, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed in Philadelphia.

On July 24th, Lieutenant General Sir William Howe arrived on Staten Island, where he set up field headquarters at the Rose and Crown Tavern in New Dorp.

On August 13th, Lieutenant General George Washington arrived in New York to reinforce the fortifications of the city, which the Americans held.

On August 21st, William Ransom, Lieutenant Lord Ellesmere, arrived at the Rose and Crown in New Dorp, reporting - somewhat late- for duty as the newest and most junior member of General Howe's Staff.

On August 22nd..."

(Come back tomorrow for the next part!) :)
