During the Revolutionary War, the soldiers were trying to raise a heavy timber which they could scarcely lift from the ground. A young corporal stood by urging the men to lift hard, and shouting, “Now, boys, right up!” A superior officer then rode up, dismounted and lifted with the men. When the timber was in place the officer asked the corporal why he did not help. “I am a corporal,” he replied. “I am George Washington,” responded the officer. (I Am A Corporal by Orison Marden)
