Know that as I could not submit to stoop before the sovereigns of Europe, so I came to hazard all for the freedom of America. Before Casimir Pulaski arrived on America's shore, the count and his family had organized a rebel army of about 4,000 men to liberate Poland from Russia. Pulaski later offered his services as a soldier and horsemen to the Continental army. George Washington wisely accepted this offer, and Pulaski trained the first American cavalry.
