Definition of Chopping:
But the people of Haarlem were now strung up, both by their own peril and the knowledge of the atrocities committed by the Spaniards in other cities, to a point of hatred and fury equal to that of the foes, and they retorted by chopping off the heads of eleven prisoners and throwing them into the Spanish camp.- "By Pike and Dyke: A Tale of the Rise of the Dutch Republic", G.A.
