    67. 67. 1.     An account from a Hessian soldier: <br /> The men looked <br /> haggard and pallid and were poorly dressed. <br /> Indeed, very many stood quite proudly under arms without <br /> shoes and stockings. What army could be maintained in <br /> this manner? None, certainly, for the whole army would <br /> gradually run away. This, too, is a part of that <br />“ Liberty and Independence” for which these poor fellows <br /> had to have their arms and legs smashed. But to what cannot<br /> enthusiasm lead a people!<br />What do you believe to be the meaning of this <br />observation? How do you think this soldier feels <br />about the men to which he refers in this statement? Explain<br />
