“Treat them with humanity, and let them have no reason to Complain of our Copying the brutal example of the British army in their Treatment of our unfortunate brethren.” – George Washington.

Yes, that George Washington, speaking to the officer he placed in charge of 211 prisoners taken at Princeton.

Any right wingnut care to attack his patriotism?

(P.S. After the war, many of those prisoners decided to remain in the new democracy. That’s how you change hearts and minds, folks!)
