Rise, and fight again
“We fight, get beat, rise, and fight again,” said Nathaniel Greene of his army. While Cornwallis retreated to the coast to recover his strength, Greene moved south to recover South Carolina. By the end of the year, he had succeeded — while Cornwallis was forced to surrender his army to General Washington at Yorktown. Greene’s monument at Guilford Courthouse National Military Park testifies to his role in the ultimate American victory.
