that miraculous year

From the last week of August to the last week of December, the year 1776 had been as dark a time as those devoted to the American cause had ever known–indeed, as dark a time as any in the history of the country. And suddenly, miraculously it seemed, that had changed because of a small band of determined men and their leader.

David McCullough, 1776 (2005)
