Reply To: George Washington wounded or not?


No Washington was not wounded. I said he was shot four times, but I obviously neglected to clarify that these were misses, not flesh and bone hits. The bullets did pass through his coat, and by default, he did barely make it out of that battle alive.

Barton is citing a parable about that battle, but Washington himself never mentioned it, neither did anyone else who participated that I can find. Another Barton embellishment I am afraid.
