Cornwallis

From Diary of the American Revolution, Vol II.  Compiled by Frank Moore and published in 1859.

July 26.—Lord Cornwallis has returned over James, River to Portsmouth, Virginia, having detached all his cavalry to Carolina. Most disgracefully has he finished a plundering excursion into the heart of Virginia. It is now clear that all ideas of conquest are ended with his lordship. To the immortal honor of Virginia, scarcely a citizen of that State joined the enemy; they abandoned and lost all, sooner than take refuge under the standards of the British.1
