It's from John Laurens. I'll read it later
But I will gladly join the fight...
No. It's from his father
And when our children tell our story...
Will you read it?
They'll tell the story of tonight.
"On Tuesday the 27th, my son was killed in a gunfight against British troops
Retreating from South Carolina. The war was already over.
As you know, John dreamed of emancipating and recruiting
3,000 men for the first all-black military regiment.
His dream of freedom for these men dies with him."
