Hero of Stony Point - James Barnes



Mad Anthony' Wayne was one of Washington's leading generals during the Revolutionary war, and the hair-raising victory at Stony Point was one of his most heroic actions of the early war years. Wayne distinguished himself as a great leader, not only in his greatest moment of victory, but also in numerous battles that ultimately were won by the British. His heroism never flagged in difficulty or defeat.
