Roanoke Island (North Carolina, United States) (search for this): article 2
The Hessians. Some of the foreign soldiers at Roanoke Island, who could hardly speak English, informed some Confederate prisoners that they were fighting for the principles of their forefathers. This is the literal truth. The principles of their forefathers, who were bought up by George the Third like cattle in the market, were ninepence a day and their bread and meat. This is about the same sum that Lincoln pays for their descendants, and constituted the only principles that either ancestors or posterity are capable of comprehending.
