"Fire upon it, my dear Marquis, and never spare a particle of my property so long as it affords a comfort or a shelter to the enemies of my country." - Virginia Governor Thomas Nelson, when asked by Marquis de Lafayette, who was commanding the artillery barrage of Yorktown in the American War of Independence, if he had a target to recommend. Nelson pointed to his own home, knowing it would probably be used as a headquarters by British General Cornwallis.
