Washington Gallantly Crossing The Delaware

Gallantly refers to a brave, spirited, noble minded, selflessly resolute or chivalrous man or an act: a gallant knight; a gallant rescue attempt.

Word origin: Gallantly stems from the old French from galant, courteous, earlier, spirited, dashing, make merry, from gala

Sentence: Though the gallant defenders were out-gunned and out-matched, they still held their ground against the enemy.
