Just as the enemy seemed ready for a final attack, the Chinese stopped firing and sent a captured American forward with a message: Surrender. McLaughlin, in an air of bravado, replied, “Tell them, I’m prepared to accept their surrender.” The Chinese weren’t amused.

TSecretary of the Navy Edwin Denby. October1921
