Washington's General Orders
given at Cambridge, July 4, 1775


"The Continental Congress
having taken all the troops
of the several Colonies,
which have been raised,
or which may be hereafter raised
for the support and defence
of the Liberties of America;
into their pay and service.
They are now the Troops of
the United Provinces of North America;
and it is hoped that
all distinctions of Colonies
will be laid aside;
so that one and the same Spirit
may animate the whole
and the only contest be
who shall render
on this great and trying occasion
the most essential service
to the Great and Common Cause
in which we are all engaged."

Back of Marker:
