Summary
Two Brothers Take Up Arms Against Each Other in the American War for Independence <p.> ""To endure is greater than to dare; to tire out hostile fortune; to be daunted my no difficulty; to keep heart when all have lost it; to go through intrigue spotless; to forgo even ambition when the end is gained - who can say this is not greatness?""--William Makepeace Thackeray, The Virginians In The Virginians by William Thackeray, two brothers find themselves on opposite sides of the war for American Independence
