Henry Laurens, Oct. 25, 1777 letter to Robert Howe:

..."Shield & give them victory in the day of Battle-make them Instruments in the establishment of Liberty & Independency-teach our hands to War & our fingers to fight-Subdue our Enemies, let their Weapons in Battle fall from their unnerved Arms..."

- [Letters of Delegates to Congress: Volume 8.]
