Sign At the Springhill Redoubt Exhibit

By the sixth of October the firing became so severe from both the land force and the broadside of the frigate La Trinite in the river that Colonel Prevost sent a letter to Count d'Estaing asking permission to allow the women and children in the town to embark on a ship under the protection of one of the French men of war.

Victory remained with the British, but the brilliant deeds of the leaders and soldiers of the defeated army remain an everlasting possession to us. Here Pulaski's name was written in shining letters in the annals of our history... .
