“The Commander in Chief…offers his most cordial Congratulations on the occasion to…all the Troops of the United States in General, and in particular to those gallant and persevering men who had resolved to defend the rights of their invaded country so long as the war should continue. For these are the men who ought to be considered as the pride and boast of the American Army; And, who crowned with well earned laurels, may soon withdraw from the field of Glory, to the more tranquil walks of civil life.”


- Gen. George Washington, Cessation of Hostilities, April 19, 1783
