  • Polish Count Casimir Pulaski (1745-1779) joined the American Revolution, distinguishing himself at the Battle of Brandywine in 1777. Asked by George Washington to organize the Continental Army cavalry, Pulaski is called the "Father of the American Cavalry". At his last cavalry charge (shown left) during the 1779 Seige of Savannah, he suffered fatal battle wounds.
