          <p>Thomas Jefferson’s description of Tadeusz Kościuszko (Thaddeus Kosciusko) could not be more accurate, as the Polish military leader dedicated his life to the cause of freedom – leading struggles in both the United States and his Polish homeland.</p>
          <h3 class="text-capitalize text-center">A brief time-line of Tadeusz Kościuszko's life:</h3>
            <li><strong>1746</strong> - Born in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (in what is today Merechevschina, Belarus).</li>
            <li><strong>1766</strong> - Has graduated from the Corps of Cadets in Warsaw, Poland.</li>
            <li><strong>1769</strong> - Moves to France in 1769 to pursue further studies, because of the outbreak of a civil war involving the Bar Confederation in 1768.</li>
            <li><strong>1774</strong> - Returnes to Poland and took a position as tutor in Józef Sylwester Sosnowski's household.</li>
            <li><strong>1776</strong> - Moves to North America, where he took part in the American Revolutionary War as a colonel in the Continental Army.</li>
            <li><strong>1783</strong> - Has promoted to brigadier by the Continental Congress for the design and overseeing the construction of state-of-the-art fortifications, including those at West Point, New York.</li>
            <li><strong>1784</strong> - Returnes to Poland.</li>
            <li><strong>1789</strong> - Has commissioned a major general in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth Army.</li>
            <li><strong>1794</strong> - After the Polish–Russian War of 1792 had resulted in the Second Partition of Poland, he organizes an uprising against Russia in March 1794. Russian forces captures him at the Battle of Maciejowice in October 1794. The defeat of the Kościuszko Uprising that November led to Poland's Third Partition in 1795, which ended the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth's independent existence for 123 years.</li>
            <li><strong>1796</strong> - Being imprisoned in St.Petersburg after the uprising, Kościuszko eventually is granted amnesty. Then he emigrates to the United States.</li>
            <li><strong>1798</strong> - Returns to Europe. Remaines politically active in Polish émigré circles in France, and on August 7, 1799, joines the Society of Polish Republicans.</li>
            <li><strong>1801</strong> - Settles in Breville, near Paris, distancing himself from politics.</li>
            <li><strong>1817</strong> - Dies in Solothurn at age 71 after falling from a horse.</li>
          <p>A man of unwavering principle, Tadeusz Kościuszko is remembered in America as an adopted son and in Poland as one of its greatest heroes.  Indeed, according to lore, his defiant statement when captured by the Russians, now forms the opening of the Polish national anthem, "Jeszcze Polska nie zginęła póki my żyjemy", ("Poland has not perished yet whilst we live").</p>
