Arthur St. Clair – January 3, 1777

Experience the American dream with today’s Patriot of the Past interview. I’m your host, John Gillespie.

It’s January 3, 1777. I’m on horseback with Scottish-American Major General Arthur St. Clair at the Battle of Princeton.

JG: “General St. Clair, look out! The British cavalry is attacking!

ASC: “Don’t worry, Johnny, we will prevail. My boys will hold the line and push the laddies back to bloody England.”

Prevail we did, as General St. Claire’s leadership inspired and encouraged the Continental Army to beat the British at the Battle of Princeton.
