“In every battle there comes a time when both sides consider themselves beaten, then he who continues the attack wins.” – Ulysses S. Grant

The answer is B. Alcohol. Lots and lots of alcohol… Washington also indulged in such luxuries as leopard skin robes for all of his horses.

Take care

Stay safe

Much love
