(continued from above)  It eludes to the tedious times and deprivations that were met by their tenacious spirit.   It cites the winter at Valley Forge,  and tells of the deplorable conditions  and their perseverance.   The 12th couplet shows their response:   "The impassioned stress ~ hard to bear ~ wore on and on,    So testing and trying men's brave souls to their utmost height,    Washington persistently pressed the early dawn,    With his many petitions to receive Heaven - sent might."    The 14th couplet shows the great spirit of Washington as follows:    "With a spirit that was higher ~ unwilling to bend,    He methodically labored ne'er ceasing to fight,    Always believing, with earnestness, that in the end,    That this cause was of God ~ His divine providence ~ and light."    A great read for all,  especially students  and historians.
