The Virginia Giant, a one-man army! Peter Francisco was believed to have had almost superhuman strength. According to legend, George Washington said, “Without him we would have lost two crucial battles, perhaps the war, and with it our freedom.” Francisco, kidnapped and abandoned by pirates at the age of five, was raised outside Richmond, and after hearing Patrick Henry’s “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” speech, he joined the Virginia Colonial Militia. He was known for his battle-hardened skills, and his bravery at Brandywine, Stony Point, Camden and Guilford Courthouse led to stories of epic proportions. Join authors Sherry and Bobby Norfolk as they separate fact from myth on topics ranging from pirates to redcoats to exciting acts of valor in this remarkable story of a true American hero.
