From one veteran to another spanning over two centuries and although we would have been on opposing sides; you gave honorable service to our King and your country. May you rest in peace, sir.

Major Pitcairn, your story captured my imagination at age 12, when I started work on my novel which featured you as a main character. What a wild ride it has been since then! Through that interest in you, I was able to make friends with people from your native town of Dysart in Scotland, and came to better understand the importance of Scotland in Britain. I fought my own battle for your country, and felt your courageous presence there. I am so much the better for knowing you, and those whom you have led me to. Your honour, wit, and warmth are still remembered on both sides the pond, and I sincerely hope and pray that we may someday meet in person before God. Until then, your soul is always in my prayers, that He may grant you his peace.

Major Pitcairn was "a man of integrity and honor" and "a good man in a bad cause," according to the Reverend Ezra Stiles, a staunch patriot and later president of Yale.
