William Prescott
Silent until you see the whites of their eyes.
Prescott quotes
Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes.
Prescott
Dinna fire till ye see the whites o' their e'en!




Prescott William quotes
Powder is scarce and must not be wasted. Do not fire until you see the whites of their eyes. Then aim low. Aim at their waistbands, aim at the handsome coats; pick off the officers.
Prescott William
Men, you are all marksmen don't one of you fire until you see the whites of their eyes.
William Prescott quotes
By push of bayonets no firing till you see the whites of their eyes!
