"Battle Off the Virginia Capes" by V. Zveg

“Our affairs are brought to a perilous crisis, that the hand of Providence, I trust, may be more conspicuous in our deliverance. The many remarkable interpositions of the Divine government, in the hours of our deepest distress and darkness, have been too luminous to suffer me to doubt the happy issue of the present contest.” George Washington, Letter to Major-General Armstrong dated 26 March 1781

Watch: History Channel’s “Battle of the Virginia Capes”
