George Washington On Torture.

 “Should any American soldier be so base and infamous as to injure any prisoner. . .

Should it extend to death itself, it will not be disproportional to its guilt at such a time and in such a cause… for by such conduct they bring shame, disgrace and ruin to themselves and their country.”
