Examples of the proper use of quotations
Original source (account by Lieutenant James Halloran of the battle of Trafalgar)

‘A shot struck the muzzle of the gun at which I was stationed (the aftermost gun on the larboard side of the lower deck), and killed or wounded everyone stationed there, myself and Midshipman Tompkins excepted. The shot was a very large one, and split into a number of sherds, each of which took its own victim. We threw the mangled body of John Jolley, a marine, out of the stern port, his stoumach being shot away; the other sufferers we left to be examined. The gun itself was split, and our second lieutenant Roskruge, who came down at that moment with some orders, advised me to leave the gun as useless.’
