INTRODUCTION. 


I.  REVOLUTIONARY  RECORDS  OF  THE  STATE. 

IN  the  compilation  of  the  following  Military  and  Naval  record  of  Connecticut  in  the  War  of  the 
Revolution,  as  called  for  by  Act  of  the  General  Assembly  approved  April  13,  1887,  various  sources 
of  information  have  been  sought  and  examined.  The  original  and  official  manuscripts  bearing 
upon  the  history  of  that  interesting  period  are,  and  long  have  been,  in  a  more  or  less  dispersed  con 
dition—a  fact  true  of  the  records  of  all  the  Thirteen  States  — and  in  some  instances  the  greater 
part  has  been  either  lost  or  destroyed.  In  the  case  of  Connecticut,  while  certain  gaps  occur  at 
intervals  in  the  continuity  of  her  Revolutionary  Papers,  the  more  valuable  portions  have  fortunately 
been  preserved  and  are  deposited  in  permanent  and  accessible  archives.  Of  this  material,  the  State 
herself  retains  a  considerable  proportion,  the  Departments  of  the  General  Government  at  Washing 
ton  contain  much,  and  the  remainder  has  passed  by  gift  and  purchase  into  the  keeping  of  indi 
viduals,  Societies,  and  Libraries  throughout  the  country.  For  convenient  reference  the  documents 
may  be  classified  as  follows : 

1.  The  original  minutes  of  the  proceedings  of  the  General  Assembly  of  Connecticut,  covering 

the  period  of  the  war,  on  file  in  the  office  of  the  Secretary  of  State,  Hartford. 

2.  The  original  minutes  of  the  proceedings  of  the  Governor  and  Council,  or  Committee  of 

War,  covering  the  period  of  the  war,  on   file  in  the  State   Library,  Hartford. 

3.  Pay-Rolls  of  the  Connecticut  Regiments  in  the  Continental  "Line"  for  certain  years,  and 

scattering  pay -table  accounts  of  State  troops  and  militia,  together  with  individual 
accounts,  bound  in  twelve  volumes,  on  file  in  the  office  of  the  State  Comptroller, 
Hartford. 

4.  Thirty-eight  bound  folio  volumes,  marked   "  Revolutionary  War,"   covering  a  period  of 

ten  years  or  more  from  1774,  and  containing  numerous  original  rolls,  letters, 
accounts,  resolutions,  petitions,  town-lists,  and  similar  material,  unbound,  on  file  in 
the  State  Library. 

5.  Rolls,  letters,  and  various  documents  bearing  on  the  service  of  Connecticut  troops,  on  file 

among  the  papers  of  General  Washington  in  the  Department  of  State,  Washington, 
D.  C. 

0.  Forty-seven  bound  folio  volumes,  containing  company  and  regimental  muster  and  pay  rolls 
of  the  regiments  of  the  Connecticut  "Line,"  together  with  numerous  militia  rolls  and 
miscellaneous  papers,  and  the  large  mass  of  applications  for  pensions,  on  file  in  the 
Pension  Bureau,  Department  of  the  Interior,  Washington,  D.  C. 

7.     The  "Trumbull  Papers,"  consisting  of  twenty -two  bound  volumes,  containing  the  official 
correspondence   of   Governor   Jonathan   Trumbull   of    Connecticut   during   the   entire 
period  of  the  war,  inclusive  also  of  many  rolls  and  miscellaneous  documents,  in  pos 
session  of  the  Massachusetts  Historical  Society,  Boston.

8.  Various    Revolutionary    papers,   military   and    naval,   in    possession   of    the    Connecticut 

Historical   Society,  Hartford. 

9.  Forty   or  more   Orderly   Books,  kept  by  Connecticut   officers  during  the  war,  containing 

general,  division,  brigade,  and   regimental  orders   issued  in  camp  and  on  the  march, 
in  the  possession  for  the  most  part  of  individuals  and  Societies. 

10.  Miscellaneous  letters,  rolls,  maps,  diaries,  and  other  papers  in  the  hands  of  descendants 
of  Revolutionary  soldiers,  individuals,  and  collectors,  or  deposited  in  Libraries  and 
State  and  Town  archives. 

Supplementing  these  documents,  and  included  among  the  authorities  on  which  this  work  is 
based,  must  be  mentioned  the  mass  of  original  letters  and  papers  which  have  found  their  way 
into  print  in  such  publications  as  Force's  American  Arch  ires,  the  volumes  issued  by  Historical 
Societies,  magazines,  genealogies,  monographs,  and  Town  histories. 


II.     ARRANGEMENT  OF  THE  ROLLS. 

The  several  rolls  and  lists  in  the  following  pages,  compiled  from  the  foregoing  records, 
have  been  arranged  chronologically  according  to  the  description  of  the  service  in  which  the 
troops  engaged.  Thus,  after  the  first  alarm,  the  Continental  soldiers  are  classified  in  the  order  in 
which  they  were  called  out,  then  the  State  troops,  and  finally  the  Militia,  with  special  lists  following. 

The  Lexington  Alarm.  —  The  first  lists  in  the  record,  grouped  under  the  head  of  the  "Out 
break  of  the  War,"  include  the  names  of  the  men  who,  under  the  provocation  of  the  moment, 
marched  to  the  relief  of  their  Massachusetts  neighbors  in  the  Lexington  Alarm.  Some  explanation 
of  the  nature  of  this  service  appears  in  the  introductory  text  on  pages  3  and  4.  It  will  be  observed 
that  the  forty-eight  towns  from  which  the  companies  set  out  represent,  with  three  exceptions,  the 
eastern  and  central  counties,  which  were  then  the  thickly  settled  sections  of  the  State,  the  nearest 
to  the  point  of  danger,  the  best  prepared  for  an  emergency,  and  the  most  accessible  in  case  of 
alarm.  It  may  also  be  noticed  that  the  four  thousand  townsmen  who  responded  to  the  Lexington 
call  were  a  representative  body,  largely  descendants  of  original  settlers,  including  all  elements  in 
the  different  communities, —  judges,  pastors,  lawyers,  physicians,  farmers,  mechanics,  sailors,  labor 
ers, —and  that  as  a  list  of  a  respectable  number  of  the  male  inhabitants  of  the  State  in  1775,  which 
may  be  utilized  in  historical  and  genealogical  researches,  a  peculiar  interest  attaches  to  it.  Follow 
ing  in  their  proper  place  are  the  names  of  the  men  engaged  in  the  Ticonderoga  enterprise. 

Continental  Troops.  —  Next  in  order  have  been  arranged  the  rolls  of  the  Connecticut  quota  of 
that  part  of  the  Revolutionary  forces  known  as  the  "  Continental "  troops,  which  constituted  the 
body  of  Washington's  army  in  the  field  throughout  the  war.  They  stand  first  in  importance,  as 
explained  on  page  IU,  and  as  appears  from  their  military  history  in  the  text  introductory  to  the 
subdivisions  A,  B,  C,  and  D,  under  which  they  have  been  classified.  After  the  Lexington  Alarm 
the  State  raised  eight  regiments,  which  were  adopted  as  Continental,  to  serve  to  the  close  of  the 
year  1775.  She  furnished  eight  for  the  year  1770,  and  eight,  with  a  large  additional  quota,  for  the 
three  years'  term  from  1777  to  1781.  Thereafter,  from  17X1  to  1783,  the  numbers  were  reduced  by 
consolidations.  The  rosters  of  these  troops  form  a  large  portion  of  the  record  (pages  33  to  370), 
and  with  the  exception  of  some  of  the  rolls  for  1775  and  the  greater  part  of  those  for  177G,  are 
believed  to  be  substantially  complete.  In  view  of  the  importance  of  the  campaign  of  1776,  it  is  to 
be  regretted  that  the  rolls  of  seven  of  the  Continental  regiments  for  that  year  are  missing.  The 
names  of  very  many  of  the  men,  however,  appear  on  the  rolls  of  1775,  when  they  served  their  first 
term,  or  on  the  rolls  of  1777,  when  they  re-enlisted  for  three  years  or  the  war,  or  again  on  the 
rolls  of  State  troops  and  militia  in  subsequent  years.  In  the  absence  of  these  lists  the  number  of 
officers  and  soldiers  that  entered  the  Continental  service  from  Connecticut  during  the  war  can  only 
be  approximately  estimated;  but  it  may  be  placed  at  about  fifteen  thousand. 


INTRODUCTION.  Xl 

State  Troops.  —  tinder  this  heading  appear  a  certain  number  of  regiments  which  were  neither 
Continental  nor  militia,  but  were  raised  mainly  in  the  .early  part  of  the  war,  to  act  as  reinforce 
ments  for  the  army  in  the  field,  for  limited  terms.  Organized  by  authority  of  the  State  or  the 
Governor,  with  the  officers'  commissions  signed  by  the  Governor,  they  were  designated  as  State 
troops,  and  at  different  periods  rendered  considerable  service. 

The  Militia.  —  The  third  distinctive  class  of  troops  was  the  standing  Militia  of  the  State, 
whose  rolls,  so  far  as  preserved,  are  arranged,  like  the  preceding,  in  chronological  order.  Here 
again  several  serious  gaps  occur  in  the  list,  which  is  a  special  misfortune  from  a  historical  point 
of  view,  inasmuch  as  the  militia  represented  the  greater  part  of  the  male  population  of  the  State. 
The  rolls  here  published,  however,  represent  a  fair  proportion  of  the  regiments  and  men  that  were 
called  into  active  service.  From  the  return,  as  given  on  page  447,  for  the  year  1782,  it  may  be 
inferred  that  the  number  of  effective  militia  varied  during  the  years  of  the  war  from  twenty-two 
to  twenty-five  thousand. 

Miscellaneous  Rolls.  —  The  closing  pages  of  the  work  contain  such  portions  of  the  Naval 
record  of  Connecticut  as  have  been  preserved  among  the  documents,  also  unclassified  lists  of 
minutemen,  volunteers,  independent  companies,  and  individual  officers  and  soldiers,  and  copies 
of  the  Pension  lists  as  published  in  Congressional  and  Government  documents  at  various  periods 
since  the  war. 

In  compiling  and  arranging  the  rolls,  as  grouped  above,  a  limited  amount  of  explanatory 
text  has  been  inserted,  showing  where  and  for  what  terms  the  troops  served.  It  has  been  possible 
to  do  this  with  a  satisfactory  degree  of  accuracy  in  the  case  of  the  regiments  of  the  Continental 
"  Line,"  and  on  pages  125-140  and  301-311  may  be  found  an  outline  of  their  organization  and  serv 
ice  generally  —  battles,  encampments,  itinerary,  and  formations  —  which  has  been  prepared  from 
original  letters  and  Order-books.  An  introductory  note  also  appears  before  each  regimental  roster. 
In  the  case  of  many  of  the  militia  regiments  and  detachments,  no  record  of  service  has  been  found. 

The  publication  of  this  work  will  doubtless  lead  to  the  production  or  discovery  of  missing 
documents,  including  rolls  of  entire  regiments,  companies,  or  the  record  of  individuals,  which  it 
may  be  desirable  to  issue  in  supplementary  form  in  the  future.  It  is  especially  requested  that  the 
originals  or  copies  of  these  may  be  forwarded  to  the  Adjutant-General  of  Connecticut  at  Hartford. 

III.     RELATION   OF  THE  STATE  TO  THE  WAR. 

The  number  of  separate  names  in  the  following  lists,  as  arranged  in  the  Index,  reaches  a 
total  of  twenty-seven  thousand  eight  hundred  and  twenty -three.  In  a  few  cases,  probably,  through 
different  spelling  of  names,  the  same  individual  has  been  entered  more  than  once.  On  the  other 
hand,  it  is  to  be  observed  that  in  numerous  cases  the  same  name  represents  different  individuals. 
Thus,  in  the  Lexington  Alarm  list,  the  William  Lyon,  of  New  Haven,  could  not  have  been  the 
William  Lyon  of  Woodstock,  nor  Lieut.  William  Adams,  of  the  Fourth  "Connecticut  Line"  for 
1777-81,  be  either  of  the  privates  of  the  same  name  in  his  regiment.  In  the  Index,  however,  these 
five  individuals  count  only  as  two  — William  Lyon  and  William  Adams.  The  identity  of  others, 
owing  to  the  absence  of  a  "residence"  column  in  many  of  the  rolls,  cannot  always  be  distin 
guished.  From  these  circumstances  it  is  evidently  impossible  to  give  the  exact  number  of  different 
individuals  of  whom  some  record  has  been  entered.  A  total  of  thirty  thousand  may  be 
accepted  as  a  reasonable  estimate.  Of  this  number  some  ten  thousand  represent  Continental 
soldiers  — men  who  had  enlisted  for  long  terms  and  served  in  the  field  outside  of  the  State 
under  Washington's  immediate  command.  A  complete  record,  as  already  indicated,  would  em 
brace  several  thousand  additional  names,  especially  of  the  militia.  From  expressions  used 
by  Governor  Trumbull  in  his  correspondence,  the  wording  of  the  calls  for  temporary  service, 
and  the  make-up  of  town  militia  lists,  it  is  apparent  that,  barring  a  small  loyalist  element 
in  the  western  part  of  the  State,  nearly  every  able-bodied  man  in  Connecticut  rendered,  or 


Ill 


CONNECTICUT  IN  THE  REVOLUTION. 


was  enrolled  as  notified  and  prepared  to  render,  some  kind  of  service  during  the  Revolutionary 
War.  The  exposed  situation  of  the  State,  with  her  entire  coast  subject  to  incursions  and  ravages 
by  the  enemy  and  her  proximity  to  the  several  fields  of  operations  in  Massachusetts,  Rhode  Island, 
and  New  York,  required  her  to  remain  in  a  constant  state  of  preparation.  On  this  account,  and 
because  of  the  size  of  her  population,  then  relatively  large,  she  was  regarded  as  one  of  the  four 
strong  States  supporting  the  cause,  ranking  in  capacity  next  after  Massachusetts,  Virginia,  and 
Pennsylvania.  How  far  the  State  was  represented  with  her  neighbors  in  the  fortunes  of  the  war, 
sharing  with  them  both  success  and  defeat,  is  a  matter  of  general  history,  confirmed  by  the  record 
in  the  following  pages,  from  which  it  appears  that  after  the  Lexington  Alarm,  Connecticut  troops 
participated  in  all  the  principal  battles,  with  the  exception  of  those  fought  in  the  extreme  Southern 
field.  They  were  present  and  engaged  at  the

pension  claims;  to  Hon.  Charles  J.  Hoadly,  Librarian  of  the  Connecticut  State  Library;  to  Hon. 
J.  Hammond  Trumbull,  President  of  the  Connecticut  Historical  Society;  to  Dr.  Samuel  A.  Green, 
Librarian  of  the  Massachusetts  Historical  Society ;  to  Maj.  E.  K.  Winship,  Washington,  D.  C. ;  and  to 
others  —  private  individuals,  librarians,  and  officials  — who  have  extended  courtesies  and  facilities. 
The  interest  taken  in  the  work  by  United  States  Senator  Joseph  R.  Hawley,  by  Governors 
Henry  B.  Harrison,  Phineas  C.  Lounsbury,  and  Morgan  G.  Bulkeley,  and  by  Adjutants-General 
Stephen  R.  Smith,  Frederick  E.  Camp,  and  Lucius  A.  Barbour,  during  whose  terms  of  office  the 
compilation  was  made,  is  also  cordially  acknowledged.  To  Col.  George  M.  White,  Assistant  Adju 
tant-General  of  the  State,  under  whose  general  supervision  the  work  has  progressed,  the  Editor 
is  under  many  and  special  obligations.

OUTBREAK  OF  THE  WAR, 


A.    The  Lexington  Alarm. 


13.    Ticonderoga  Enterprise. 


April-May,  1775. 


A.    THE    LEXINGTON    ALARM. 


rHE  Revolutionary  record  of  Connecticut  opens  with  her  response  to  the  historic  Lexington 
alarm  of  April  19,  1775,  and  closes  eight  years  and  a  half  later  with  the  disbandment, 
after  the  Peace,  of  her  last  regiment  in  the  field,  in  November,  1783. 

The  attitude  assumed  by  the  colonists  at  the  beginning  of  the  struggle  was  that  of  vigilance 
and  self-defense.  Alarmed  by  the  determination  of  the  home  government,  openly  declared  within 
recent  years,  to  establish  its  authority  more  firmly  in  America,  they  entered  vigorous  protests  against 
the  new  policy  as  tending  to  endanger  certain  privileges  of  their  own,  assured  to  them  by  charter  or 
long  enjoyment.  While  differing  somewhat  from  each  other,  either  in  creed,  temperament,  descent,  or 
manners,  the  people  in  the  several  colonies,  or  the  great  majority  of  them,  stood  politically,  in  1775, 
on  the  common  platform  of  non-interference  in  their  local  affairs.  They  advocated  home-rule  com 
bined  with  loyalty  to  the  general  interests  of  the  British  Empire,  which,  in  effect,  represents  the 
relations  existing  between  England  and  her  larger  dependencies  at  the  present  day.  In  this  sense  the 
cause  of  any  one  of  the  American  colonies  was  the  cause  of  all.  An  attempt  upon  the  privileges 
of  one  was  a  threat  against  all.  An  alarm  sounded  in  one  locality  was  bound  to  spread  by  common 
sympathy  to  every  other. 

In  Connecticut,  especially  in  her  eastern  section,  this  colonial  spirit  took  deep  root,  and  when 
Massachusetts,  in  1774,  was  made  the  subject  of  restrictive  measures  by  the  home  ministry,  general 
indignation  was  aroused.  As  the  possibility  of  a  collision  became  apparent  town  meetings  were  held, 
contributions  of  money  and  provisions  were  voted  for  the  distressed  inhabitants  of  Boston,  whose 
port  had  been  closed  by  act  of  Parliament,  non-intercourse  with  British  merchants  advised,  a  gen 
eral  congress  representing  all  the  colonies  proposed,  and  Committees  of  Correspondence  appointed 
to  circulate  all  news  of  importance.  A  convention  of  delegates  from  the  two  counties  of  New 
London  and  Windham,  held  at  Norwich,  September  8,  1774,  went  further  and  recommended  their 
towns  to  keep  up  their  stock  of  ammunition  and  attend  to  the  exercise  of  the  train-bands.  In  the 
Assembly  of  the  Colony,  which  in  May,  1774,  adopted  resolutions  protesting  against  the  recent  acts 
of  Parliament  touching  America,  the  drift  of  events  was  so  far  recognized,  that,  in  October,  it 
required  the  selectmen  of  the  towns  to  provide  a  double  quantity  of  "powder,  balls,  and  flint,"  and 
in  January,  1775,  ordered  the  entire  militia  to  muster  and  drill  once  a  week  during  the  three  months 
following.  The  situation  was  characterized  as  "  an  alarming  crisis." 

The  crisis  culminated  on  April  10,  1775.  A  detachment  of  British  troops  marching  out  from 
Boston  to  seize  military  stores  alleged  to  have  been  collected  at  Concord  for  hostile  purposes,  was 
met  upon  the  road  by  the  Provincials  and  a  bloody  encounter  took  place.  The  since  famous  skir 
mishes  of  Lexington  and  Concord  were  fought,  which  precipitated  the  Revolutionary  War.  An 
"alarm"  was  immediately  spread  in  every  direction,  so  that  on  the  27th  of  April  it  had  reached  the 
principal  points  as  far  as  Baltimore,  and  by  the  llth  of  May  was  posted  at  Charleston,  S.  C. 
Throughout  New  England  the  news  was  rapidly  carried  by  horse  "expresses"  from  town  to  town. 
It  was  dispatched  to  Connecticut  by  the  Massachusetts  Committee  of  Safety  at  Watertown  during 
the  progress  of  the  fighting,  or  "near  ten  o'clock"  of  Wednesday  morning,  April  19th:  "The  bearer, 
Israel  Bessel,  is  charged  to  alarm  the  country  quite  to  Connecticut,  and  all  persons  are  desired  to 
furnish  him  with  fresh  horses  as  they  may  be  needed."  During  Thursday,  the  20th,  the  news  was 
circulating  through  the  eastern  part  of  the  Colony.  The  people  of  Windham  County  received  it

generally  by  noon.  It  reached  Governor  Trurnbull  at  Lebanon  not  long  after.  It  was  doubtless  at 
Hartford  before  night ;  at  New  Haven  on  the  following  evening,  Friday,  the  21st,  and  forwarded 
from  there  through  Fairfield  and  Stamford  to  New  York. 

Prepared  to  a  certain  extent  for  such  an  alarm,  a  large  number  of  able-bodied  men  in  Con 
necticut  hurried  off  to  Massachusetts.  The  wording  used  in  the  records  of  the  day,  "  marched  for  the 
relief  of  Boston,"  expresses  alike  the  extent  of  their  sympathies  and  the  nature  of  the  service 
intended.  The  response  to  the  alarm  was  not  the  official  action  of  the  Colony,  nor,  on  the  other 
hand,  an  impromptu  movement  ?f  individuals  without  previous  organization.  An  "uprising"  of 
armed  men  might  have  partaken  of  a  mob  character,  and  the  militia  regiments  as  such  could  only 
be  called  out  by  the  governor  or  legislature.  It  was  rather  a  movement  of  the  townsmen  marching 
under  their  militia  organizations.  The  gathering  thus  became  orderly  as  well  as  spontaneous, 
and  represented  the  town  spirit  shown  previously  in  protests  and  resolutions.  It  appears  from 
the  records  that  in  some  cases  the  companies  or  train-bands  collected  and  marched  off  under  their 
officers  without  further  orders  :  in  other  cases,  the  colonels  taking  the  lead,  called  out  a  certain 
number  of  their  men  and  directed  them  to  march  forthwith  to  the  point  of  danger  ;  in  a  few  cases 
volunteer  companies  were  organized  for  the  special  service  ;  in  addition,  many  individuals,  not  be 
longing  to  the  militia,  joined  in  the  march,  either  providing  for  themselves  or  going  with  the  com 
panies.  Colonel  Williams  of  the  llth  Regiment,  sends  out  word  on  the  20th,  "that  it  will  be 
expedient  for  every  man  to  go  who  is  fit  and  willing."  A  letter  dated  Wethersfield,  April  2.3d,  de 
scribes  the  scene  there  as  follows  :  "  We  are  all  in  motion  here,  and  equipt  from  the  Town  yester 
day,  one  hundred  young  men.  who  cheerfully  offered  their  service,  twenty-days'  provision  and 
sixty -four  rounds  per  man.  They  are  all  well  armed  and  in  high  spirits.  My  brother  has  gone  with 
them  and  others  of  the  first  property.  Our  neighboring  towns  are  all  arming  and  moving.  Men  of 
the  first  character  shoulder  their  arms  and  march  off  for  the  field  of  action.  We  shall  by  night 

have  several  thousands  from  this  Colony  on  their  march We  fix  on  our  Standards  and 

Drnms  the  Colony  arms,  with  the  motto  '  qui  transtulit  sustinet,'  round  it  in  letters  of  gold,  which 
we  construe  thus  :  '  God,  who  transplanted  us  hither,  will  support  us.'  '  Writing  from  Wallingford, 
April  24th,  Mr.  James  Lockwood' says :  "Col.  Wadsworth  was  over  at  this  place  most  of  yesterday 
and  has  ordered  twenty  men  out  of  each  Company  of  his  Regiment,  some  of  which  had  .already  set 
off  and  others  go  this  morning.  .  .  .  The  Country  beyond  here  are  all  gone."  Nor  were  the 
Colony  officials  inactive.  Upon  receiving  "the  tragical  narrative"  from  Massachusetts,  Gov. 
Trumbull  issued  writs  for  a  special  meeting  of  the  Assembly  on  the  20th,  and  the  general  Committee 
of  Correspondence  sent  prompt  assurance  of  assistance  to  President  Hancock  of  the  Massachusetts 
Provincial  Congress.  Writing  from  Lebanon  on  the  21st,  the  Committee  say:  "Every  preparation 
is  making  to  support  your  Province.  .  .  .  The  ardour  of  our  people  is  such  that  they  can't  be 
kept  back.  The  Colonels  are  to  forward  part  of  the  best  men  and  the  most  ready,  as  fast  as  possi 
ble,  the  remainder  to  be  ready  at  a  moment's  warning.  These  are  the  present  movements  with  us." 

The  number  of  men  who  are  reported  in  the  records  to  have  marched  in  the  Lexington  alarm 
was  about  four  thousand.  The  duty  was  necessarily  temporary  and  brief.  Some  of  the  companies 
returned  home  before  reaching  Boston,  as  their  presence  was  not  needed.  Upon  the  organization  of 
regiments  for  service  during  the  year,  many  of  the  same  men  enlisted  and  continued  for  different 
terms  during  the  war.  At  the  May  session  of  the  Legislature  their  service  was  recognized  and  the 
men  paid  for  the  time  as  given  on  the  following  lists,  the  originals  of  which  are  on  file  in  the  State 
Library,  Rev.  War,  Vol.  If.

B.-THE   TICONDEROGA   ENTERPRISE. 


rHE  possession  and  control  of  Lakes  George  and  Champlain  had,  from  an  early  date,  been 
regarded  by  the  people  of  New  York  and  New  England  as  necessary  to  their  protection 
against  the  encroachments  of  the  French  in  Canada.  It  was  around  Ticonderoga  and 
Crown  Point  that  the  greater  part  of  the  fighting  in  the  French  and  Indian  War  occurred.  When 
the  Revolutionary  struggle  opened,  the  importance  of  those  posts  was  at  once  recognized  in  the 
northern  colonies,  and  far-sighted  individuals  in  Massachusetts,  Connecticut,  and  New  York,  alike 
proposed  their  immediate  seizure.  In  addition  Fort  Ticonderoga  contained  cannon  and  stores  just 
then  much  needed  by  the  Provincials.  The  step  seemed  urgent  inasmuch  as  England's  hold  on  the 
Canadas  was  firmer  than  elsewhere  in  America,  and  the  people  of  those  provinces  were  not  pre 
pared  to  disturb  it.  In  the  approaching  contest,  accordingly,  the  line  of  the  St.  Lawrence  and  the 
lake  region  would  again  become  the  field  of  military  operations. 

In  Connecticut  and  Massachusetts  movements  were  set  on  foot  to  secure  the  old  fortress  at 
Ticonderoga  immediately  after  the  Lexington  alarm.  It  was  then  garrisoned  by  Captain  Delaplace 
of  the  Twenty-sixth  Regiment,  British  army,  and  a  small  company  of  regulars.  In  Connecticut  the 
enterprise  originated,  as  reported  by  Capt.  Edward  Mott,  one  of  the  leaders  engaged,  in  the  follow 
ing  manner:  "A  number  of  the  principal  gentlemen  of  the  Assembly  at  Hartford,  on  Friday,  the 
twenty-eighth  day  of  April,  Conversing  on  the  distressed  Condition  of  the  people  of  Boston,  and  the 
means  necessary  to  relieve  them,  fell  on  the  Scheme  to  take  that  -Fortress  [Ticonderoga],  that  we 
might  have  the  advantage  of  the  Cannon  that  were  there,  to  relieve  the  people  of  Boston.  I  told 
the  Gentlemen  that  in  my  opinion  it  might  be  taken  by  surprise  with  a  few  men,  if  properly  Con 
ducted.  On  which  they  desired  me,  if  I  was  willing  to  serve  my  country  in  that  way,  to  join 
Captain  Noah  Phelps,  of  Simsbury,  and  Mr.  Bernard  Romans,  on  that  design,  and  furnished  us  with 
three  hundred  Pounds  in  Cash  from  the  Treasury,  and  desired  us  to  go  forward  to  the  Upper  Towns, 
and  search  into  the  situation  of  said  Garrison,  and,  if  I  thought  proper  to  proceed  to  take  possession 
of  the  same."  The  gentlemen  referred  to  by  Mott,  who  on  their  individual  notes  procured  the 
money  from  the  Treasury,  were  Samuel  Wyllys,  Jesse  Root,  and  Ezekiel  Williams  of  Hartford, 
Samuel  Bishop,  Jr.,  and  Adam  Babcock,  of  New  Haven,  Samuel  Holden  Parsons,  of  New  London, 
Silas  Deane,  of  Wethersfield,  William  Williams,  of  Lebanon,  Charles  Webb,  of  Stamford,  Joshua 
Porter,  of  Salisbury,  and  Thomas  Mumford,  of  Groton.  With  this  informal  authority  Captains  Mott 
and  Phelps,  with  six, or  eight  volunteers  from  Hartford,  proceeded  to  Salisbury  where  the  entire  party 
was  increased  to  sixteen.  From  that  point  they  continued  to  Pittsfield,  Mass.,  where  Col  James 
Easton,  John  Brown,  Israel  Dickinson,  and  about  fifty  men  were  enlisted  in  the  enterprise.  In  the 
Hampshire  Grants  Col.  Ethan  Allen  and  Seth  Warner,  both  natives  of  Connecticut,  and  one 
hundred  Green  Mountain  Boys  were  added  to  the  party,  and  early  on  May  10th  the  fortress  was 
surprised  and  taken  without  loss.  Capt.  Phelps  states  in  a  memorial  that  when  the  expedition 
reached  Bennington,  a  council  of  war  was  held  which  directed  him  and  Mr.  Hecock,  from  Sheffield, 
to  proceed  in  disguise  to  the  fort  beforehand  and  report  on  its  condition,  which  service  he  "cheer 
fully  undertook." 

Of  the  Connecticut  party,  Capt.  Mott,  as  chairman,  Epaphras  Bull,  Noah  Phelps,  and  Col. 
Easton,  of  Pittsfield,  constituted  a  "  Committee  of  War  for  the  expedition  against  Ticonderoga  and 
Crown  Point,"  and  by  its  authority  the  command  of  the  expedition  at  the  time  of  the  surprise  was 

(29) 


30  CONNECTICUT   IN   THE   REVOLUTION. 

given  to  Col.  Ethan  Allen.  That  officer,  in  reporting  his  success  to  the  Massachusetts  authorities, 
stated  that  the  attempt  was  made  "by  the  order  of  the  General  Assembly  of  the  Colony  of 
Connecticut." 

In  Massachusetts  an  independent  movement  was  undertaken.  The  Provincial  Committee  of 
Safety,  which  had  previously  inquired  into  the  condition  of  affairs  in  Canada,  appreciated  the  im 
portance  of  Ticonderoga,  and  it  appears  were  urged  to  secure  it  by  Benedict  Arnold,  who  had  then 
lately  arrived  with  his  New  Haven  Company  in  the  Lexington  Alarm.  The  Committee  entrusted  the 
undertaking  to  Arnold,  and  011  May  3d  appointed  him  "Colonel  and  Commander-in-Chief "  of  a 
body  of  men  not  exceeding  four  hundred  which  he  was  to  enlist  in  Western  Massachusetts  and 
vicinity,  and  with  them  effect  the  capture  of  the  fortress.  Arnold  started  off  alone  and  overtook 
the  Connecticut  expedition  under  Ethan  Allen.  By  virtue  of  his  Massachusetts  commission  lie 
demanded  the  sole  command  of  the  party,  but  upon  its  refusal  to  accept  his  leadership,  he 
marched  with  it  to  the  fort  and  entered  the  gate  "side  by  side"  with  Col.  Allen.  Col.  Arnold  then 
enlisted  a  portion  of  the  regiment  authorized  by  the  committee  and  occupied  points  on  the  lakes,  at 
times  being  in  command  at  Crown  Point,  which  had  also  been  seized,  and  again  at  Ticonderoga. 
On  May  18th  with  fifty  men  under  Captains  Brown  and  Oswald  he  surprised  St.  John  —  Oswald 
being  one  of  the  members  of  Arnold's  New  Haven  Company. 

Following  up  this  successful  stroke,  Governor  Trumbull  ordered  one  of  the  newly  raised  regi 
ments  for  the  year  '75,  under  Col.  Hinman,  to  march  immediately  to  Ticonderoga  and  Crown 
Point  and  occupy  them.  A  request  to  this  effect  was  also  made  by  the  Continental  Congress. 
The  Massachusetts  Provincial  Congress  had  informed  Col.  Arnold  that  as  "the  affairs  of  that  expe 
dition  began  in  the  Colony  of  Connecticut,"  they  had  written  to  its  Assembly  to  assume  full  charge 
of  it.  Upon  the  arrival  of  Col.  Hinman,  however,  Arnold  declined  to  serve  under  him  and  disband 
ing  his  small  regiment,  resigned  his  Massachusetts'  colonelcy  June  24th,  to  appear  next,  in  Septem 
ber,  in  command  of  the  expedition  through  the  Maine  woods  to  Quebec. 

Upon  the  assumption  in  July  of  the  command  of  Northern  New  York,  or  the  Northern  De 
partment  as  it  was  commonly  known,  by  Major-Gen.  Philip  Schuyler,  Fort  Ticonderoga  passed 
under  the  direction  of  the  Continental  authorities.  It  was  held  by  the  Americans  throughout  the 
war,  except  during  the  interval  of  the  Burgoyne  alarm  and  campaign  from  July  to  November,  1777. 

The  following  lists  are  arranged  from  the  original  MSS.  in  the  State  Library,  Rev.  War, 
Vol.  III.  The  first  list  represents,  as  far  as  the  records  indicate,  the  party  of  sixteen  which  Capt. 
Mott  states  to  have  started  from  Connecticut  in  the  first  instance  to  become  the  nucleus  of  the 
expedition.

THE  CONTINENTAL  ARMY. 


THE  following  rosters  of  troops,  arranged  chronologically  under  the  headings 
A,  B,  0,  and  D,  include  the  quotas  contributed  by  Connecticut  to  what  was 
known  as  the  Continental  Army  of  the  Revolution. 

The  term  "Continental  Army"  first  appears  upon  the  printed  records  of  the 
Continental  Congress  in  the  summary  of  the  proceedings  for  June  14,  1775,  where 
the  form  of  enlistment  to  be  subscribed  by  companies  of  riflemeu  is  given.  It  was 
to  be  an  enlistment  into  "the  American  Continental  Army."  On  the  same  day  a 
Committee  of  five  was  appointed  to  prepare  rules  and  regulations  for  the  govern 
ment  of  this  prospective  army,  which  were  reported  and  adopted  on  the  30th.  On 
June  15th,  it  was  resolved  "That  a  General  be  appointed  to  command  all  the 
Continental  forces,  raised  or  to  be  raised,  for  the  defence  of  American  Liberty," 
and  Washington  was  unanimously  elected. 

At  the  opening  of  the  War,  or  for  the  year  1775,  no  Continental  force  was 
in  the  first  instance  organized  as  such  by  Congress.  As  the  New  England  Colonies 
were  mustering  their  own  troops  around  Boston  and  Ticonderoga  after  the  Lexing 
ton  alarm,  Congress  adopted  them  as  Continental.  Troops  joining  them  from  New 
York  and  elsewhere  were  generally  recruited  on  the  Continental  basis.  For  the 
succeeding  years  of  the  war,  Congress  took  the  initiative  and  raised  troops  for  the 
common  army  under  its  own  regulations  respecting  pay,  subsistence,  and  term  of 
service.  The  force,  as  will  appear,  was  organized  and  re-organized  several  tftnes 
and  for  various  terms. 

These  Continentals  were  the  "regulars"  of  the  Revolution.  They  formed  the 
main  army  in  the  field  and  were  the  chief  dependence  of  the  Colonial  cause.  In 
arranging  rosters  of  that  war,  accordingly,  the  Continental  army  occupies  the 
central  and  most  prominent  place.  All  other  troops  raised  during  the  war, 
whether  State  or  militia,  were  to  act  as  reinforcements  of  this  army  or  to  relieve  it 
by  serving  in  alarms  at  different  points.  They  are  so  classified  after  the  Continen 
tals.  See  "Arrangement  of  the  Rolls"  in  the  Introduction. 


(34) 


A.    REGIMENTS    FOR    1775. 


ORGANIZATION.— The  voluntary  mustering  in  the  Alarm  of  April  19th  was  followed 
immediately  by  the  first  authorized  call  for  troops.  On  the  20th,  upon  the  receipt  of  the  Lex 
ington  news,  Gov.  Trumbull  summoned  the  General  Assembly  to  a  special  session  at  Hartford 
to  convene  the  following  Wednesday,  April  20th.  Publishing  the  call  on  his  own  views  of  the 
emergency  he  also  received  urgent  appeals  from  the  Massachusetts  authorities  for  aid  and  support. 
Under  date  of  April  20th  the  Committee  of  Safety  at  Cambridge  wrote  to  him  as  follows:  "As  the 
troops  have  now  commenced  hostilities,  we  think  it  our  duty  to  exert  our  utmost  strength  to  save  our 
country  from  absolute  slavery.  We  pray  your  Honours  would  afford  us  all  the  assistance  in  your  power, 
and  shall  be  glad  that  our  brethren  who  come  to  our  aid  may  be  supplied  with  military  stores  and  pro 
visions,  as  we  have  none  of  either  more  than  is  absolutely  necessary  for  ourselves."  Again  on  April 
2Gth  they  wrote:  "  The  distressed  situation  in  which  we  are,  and  the  danger  to  which  the  liberties  of  all 
America,  and  especially  the  New  England  Colonies  are  exposed,  will  be  the  best  apology  for  the 
importunate  application  to  you  for  immediate  assistance.  We  pray  as  you  regard  the  safety  of  your 
country,  that  as  large  a  number  of  troops  as  you  can  spare  may  immediately  march  forward." 

The  Assembly  met  on  the  date  indicated  and  held  a  ten  days'  session,  adjourning  Saturday  noon, 
May  Gth.  While  preparing  for  resistance  it  refrained  from  aggressive  declarations.  It  recognized  the 
skirmishes  at  Lexington  and  Concord  as  "Sundry  acts  of  hostility  and  violence  committed  in  the  Province 
of  Massachusetts  Bay,  by  which  many  lives  have  been  lost,"  and  through  a  committee  of  two  of  its 
members,  as  bearers  of  a  letter  from  the  Governor,  requested  General  Gage  at  Boston  to  explain  his 
military  preparations  and  late  incursion.  Its  attitude  is  represented  in  these  expressions  in  the  Gover 
nor's  letter:  "The  people  of  this  Colony,  you  may  rely  upon  it,  abhor  the  idea  of  taking  up  arms 
against  the  troops  of  their  sovereign,  and  dread  nothing  so  much  as  the  horrors  of  a  civil  war.  But, 
Sir,  at  the  same  time  we  beg  leave  to  assure  your  Excellency,  that  as  they  apprehend  themselves 
justified  by  the  principle  of  self-defence,  they  are  most  firmly  resolved  to  defend  their  rights  and 
privileges  to  the  last  extremity;  nor  will  they  be  restrained  from  giving  aid  to  their  brethren  if  any 
unjustifiable  attack  is  made  upon  them." 

The  leading  measure  of  the  session  was  An  Act  for  assembling,  equipping,  etc.,  a  Number  of  the 
Inhabitants  of  this  Colony  for  the  Special  Defence  and  Safety  thereof.  It  provided  that  one  fourth  part 
of  the  Colony  militia  should  be  forthwith  enlisted,  accoutred,  and  assembled,  to  be  led  and  conducted  as 
the  General  Assembly  should  order.  This  apportionment  represented  about  six  thousand  men,  who  were 
to  be  distributed  in  six  regiments  of  ten  companies  each,  with  a  full  complement  of  field,  staff,  and  line 
officers.  The  entire  body  was  to  be  commanded  by  one  major-general  and  two  brigadier-generals,  each 
of  whom  was  also  to  take  command  of  a  regiment  as  colonel.  Arms,  equipments,  pay,  billeting,  and 
bounty  money  were  provided,  and  "beating  orders"  delivered  to  the  officers  to  recruit  their  compa 
nies  by  voluntary  enlistment.  The  term  of  service  was  not  to  exceed  seven  months. 

At  the  third  special  session  of  the  Assembly,  convened  July  1, 1775,  two  more  regiments,  somewhat 
smaller,  were  ordered,  making  eight  in  all,  consisting  of  about  seven  thousand  four  hundred  men.  This 
included  the  entire  number  of  troops  called  out  by  authority  of  the  Colony,  for  service  which  took  them 
beyond  its  limits,  in  the  year  1775.  The  officers  were  all  appointed  by  the  Assembly. 

As  Continental  Troops. —  Accepting  war  as  inevitable  the  Continental  Congress  at  Philadelphia 
proceeded,  as  stated  on  page  34,  to  organize  a  Continental  Army.  The  troops  which  had  hurriedly  gathered 

(35) 


36  CONNECTICUT   IN   THE   REVOLUTION. 

around  Boston,  including  regiments  from  Massachusetts,  New  Hampshire,  Rhode  Island,  and  two  of 
the  Connecticut  regiments  referred  to  above,  were  already  in  the  field  as  good  material  for  the 
nucleus  of  such  an  army.  Washington  arrived  in  camp  at  Cambridge  on  July  3d,  and  the  Colony 
troops  having  accepted  his  leadership  and  the  regulations  of  Congress,  the  entire  force  was  placed  upon  a 
Continental  establishment.  This  new  relation  was  officially  announced  by  Washington  in  General  Orders 
dated  "Head  Quarters,  Cambridge,  July  4,  1775,"  as  follows: 

The  Continental  Congress  having  now  taken  all  the  Troops  of  the  several  Colonies,  which  have  been  raised,  or  which  may  be 
hereafter  raised,  for  the  support  and  defence  of  the  Liberties  of  America  into  their  Pay  and  Service;  They  are  now  the  Troops  of  the 
United  Provinces  of  North  America;  and  it  is  to  be  hoped  that  all  Distinctions  of  Colonies  will  be  laid  aside:  so  that  one  and  the  same 
spirit  may  animate  the  whole,  and  the  only  Contest  be,  who  shall  render  on  this  great  and  trying  occasion,  the  most  essential  Service  to 
the  great  and  common  cause  in  which  we  are  all  engaged. 

Service. —  Of  the  eight  Connecticut  regiments  organized  as  stated,  five  were  ordered  at  different 
times  during  the  summer  to  the  Boston  camps  under  Washington  and  three  to  the  Northern  Department  un 
der  Schuyler.  The  five  were  those  of  Generals  Spencer  and  Putnam  and  Colonels  Parsons,  Charles  Webb, 
and  Huntington.  With  them  also  were  four  companies  of  the  regiments  under  Schuyler,  indicated  in  the 
rolls.  These  troops  were  engaged  with  the  army  in  general  in  throwing  up  works  around  Boston  and  main 
taining  the  siege  of  the  place.  Some  disatisfaction  occurred  among  the  men  and  many  returned  home 
just  before  the  expiration  of  their  term  of  service.  Their  excuses  were  those  of  men  who  had  enlisted 
provisionally  and  as  yet  had  not  learned  the  true  meaning  of  military  discipline.  Desertion  they  dis 
claimed.  The  trouble  proved  to  be  temporary,  as  the  regiments,  upon  the  enlistment  of  troops  for 
the  next  year,  were  recruited  to  the  average  strength. 

The  three  regiments  for  the  Northern  Department  were  those  of  General  Wooster  and  Colonels 
Hinman  and  Waterbury,  with  one  company  of  Colonel  Parsons'  regiment.  They  took  part  in  the  opera 
tions  under  Schuyler  and  Montgomery,  looking  to  the  secure  possession  of  Lakes  George  and  Champlain 
and  the  invasion  of  Canada.  Much  sickness  prevailed  among  the  men.  The  records  show  that  these 
regiments  at  first  declined  to  be  mustered  as  Continental,  the  men  preferring  to  remain  during  their 
term,  which  expired  December  10,  on  the  Colony  establishment ;  but  the  matter  coming  before  the 
Legislature  at  its  October  session,  it  resolved  that  all  the  Connecticut  troops  "then  employed  against 
the  ministerial  troops  in  Canada,  shall  be  suject  to  the  rules,  orders,  regulations,  and  discipline  of  the 
Congress  of  the  twelve  United  Colonies  during  the  time  of  their  enlistment."  They  thus  became  what 
they  had  been  considered  in  the  field  —  Continental  regiments. 

Bunker  Hill  and  Quebec.—  In  a  note  appended  to  General  Putnam's,  or  the  Third  Regiment,  some 
statements  appear  respecting  the  Connecticut  detachment  at  Bunker  Hill,  and  at  the  close  of  the  record 
for  1775  (following  Huntington's  regiment)  the  record  of  Connecticut  men  in  the  Quebec  Expedition  is 
given. 

The  list  of  Staff  officers  and  rosters  of  the  regiments  for  1775,  compiled  from  the  records,  State 
Library,  Rev.  War,  Voh.  IT  and  III,  and  other  original  sources,  are  as  follows:

Jonathan  Heart,  of  Southington,  (afterwards  an  officer  through  the  war,)  is  said  to  have  been  in  one  of  the  regi 
ments  before  Boston  in  '75.     He  may  have  been  a  volunteer  in  the  21'  Co.  of  Spencer's  Regt.  as  Capt.  Scott 

of  that  Co.  authorizes  the  Pay  table  Committee  to  deliver  the  pay  for  his  men  "to  Jonathan  Heart." 
A  number  of  men  entered  as  deserters  about  Dec.  1,  afterwards  explained,  in  petitions,  that  they  had  no  inten 
tion  of  deserting,  but  believed  that  their  term  had  expired  on  that  date  instead  of  the  10lh.  "The  Assembly 
ordered  them  to  be  paid  for  full  time.  Some  of  these  cases  are  on  record,  viz. :  Serjt.  Joseph  Stocking, 
Privates  Thos.  Jeroms,  Thos.  Gilbert,  Amos  Rose,  and  Thos.  Gould  (not  on  the  Co.  rolls  above),  of  the 
6th  Co. ;  Amos  Fuller,  of  the  8th  Co. ;  and  William  Crane,  of  Wethersfield,  of  the  9th  Co.  Respecting  the 
latter,  his  mother,  Lydia  Crane,  states  in  a  petition  that  she  had  three  sons  in  the  service  in  1775.  The 
eldest  (name  not  given)  died  in  camp;  the  second  (probably  Joseph  Crane,  9'h  Co.)  returned;  and  the  third, 
the  above  William  Crane,  who  had  enlisted  in  Chester's  Co.  and  fought  at  Bunker  Hill,  left  his  regiment 
about  Nov.  30.  supposing  his  time  out,  but  being  taking  down  with  fever  on  the  war,  wandered  in  his 
delirium  to  Leicester,  Mass.,  and  died  there.

1  The  record  does  not  show  that  Experience  Storrs  was  made  full  Colonel  after  July  when  Gen.  Putnam,  under  the  new  Continental  plan,  ceased  to  command  the 
regiment.    The  promotion  of  Durkce  from  Major  to  Lieut. -Col.  would  imply  that  Storrs  was  also  promoted.

NOTE    ON    BUNKER    HILL. 

number  of  Connecticut  troops  present  at  this  engagement  was  about  four  hundred.  As  far  as  letters  and  meagre  records 
show  they  were  detailed  as  follows  :  On  the  evening  of  June  16,  75,  a  body  of  one  thousand  men  from  the  Massachusetts 
and  Connecticut  regiments  around  Cambridge,  under  the  immediate  command  of  Col.  Prescott,  was  ordered  to  Charlestowu  Neck  to 
fortify  Bunker's  (Breed's)  Hill.  Of  this  number  two  hundred  were  from  Conn,  under  the  command  of  Capt.  Knowltou,  the  detach 
ment  being  made  up  of  details  of  one  subaltern  officer  and  about  thirty  men  from  companies  in  Putnam's  and  Spencer's  regiments. 
Lt.-Col.  Storrs,  of  Putnam's,  states  that  he  sent  from  his  company,  "  Lieut.  Dana,  Serjt.  Fuller,  Corp.  Webb,  and  28  Privates." 
Capt.  Chester,  of  Spencer's,  states  that  thirty-one  went  from  his  company,  probably  under  Lieut,  Stephen  Goodrich.  Putnam's  own 
company  was  represented  by  Lieut.  Grosvenor  and  thirty  men. 

Prescott's  command,  working  all  night,  completed  a  redoubt  which  threatened  the  British  shipping.  Lord  Howe  determined 
to  drive  the  "rebels"  from  it,  and  the  battle  of  Bunker  Hill  followed,  .Tune  17.  During  the  progress  of  the  action,  Captain 
Knowlton  and  the  Connecticut  men,  with  others,  were  sent  to  the  left  where  they  posted  themselves  behind  a  stone  wall  and  inflicted 
heavy  loss  upon  the  enemy.  Reinforcements  from  the  American  camp  arrived  both  before  and  during  the  battle.  Among  these 
were  the  whole  or  portions  of  at  least  three  companies  of  Connecticut  troops.  Captain  Chester  reached  the  stone  wall  with  the 
rest  of  his  company,  perhaps  sixty  men,  and  Captains  Clark  and  Coit,  of  Parsons'  regiment,  also  arrived.  These  with  the  two 
hundred  detailed  the  evening  before  would  make  about  four  hundred  as  Connecticut's  representation  at  the  battle. 

Among  the  Connecticut  officers  mentioned  as  present  in  the  action  were  Gen.  Putnam,  in  general  command.  Major  Durkce, 
Captains  Chester,  Clark,  Coit,  Lieuts.  Dana,  Keyes,  Hide,  Webb,  Grosveuor,  Bingham  (of  Norwich),  and  Ensigns  Hill  and  Bill  (of 
Lebanon).  A  few  of  the  men's  names  are  also  reported,  namely  :  Roger  Fox,  William  Checney,  Asahel  Lyon,  Benjamin  Rist, 
Samuel  Ashbo,  Gershom  Smith,  Matthew  Cuminings,  Daniel  Memory  —  killed  ;  Philip  Johnston,  Wilson  Rowlandson,  Lawrence 
Sullivan,  William  Robinson,  Benjamin  Ross — prisoners;  Gershom  Clark,  of  Lebanon,  wounded;  James  Law,  of  Lebanon  —  right 
arm  broken;  John  Arnold,  Ebenezer  Clark,  Elijah  Abbe,  William  Clark,  Beriah  Geer,  Nathan  Richardson,  William  Watrous.^Syl- 
vanus  Snow,  William  Moore,  John  Wampee,  and  Timothy  Bugbee  —  lost  their  guns  in  the  fight.  As  to  losses,  one  account  gives 
fourteen  killed  and  thirty  wounded  among  the  Connecticut  men.  Dr.  Philip  Turner  is  mentioned  as  "  attend*  wounded  after 
Charlestown  Battle."  Lawrence  Sullivan,  prisoner,  was  released  Feb.  24,  76.  William  Crane,  of  Wethersfield,  Chester's  Co.,  was 
in  the  action. 

Lieut. -Col.  Storrs  makes  the  following  entry  in  his  diary  (MSS.)  June  17,  the  day  of  the  battle: 

"At  sunrise  this  morning  a  fire  began  from  y"  ships,  but  moderate.  About  10  went  down  to  y  Hill  to  Genl.  Putnam's  Post,  who 
has  y  command.  Some  shot  whistled  around  us.  Tarried  there  a  spell  and  Returned  to  have  my  company  in  readiness  to  relieve  them  — 


lars  did  not  come  off  from  Bunker's  Hill  but  have  taken  possession  of  the  Intrenchments  and  our  People  make  a  Stand  on  Winter  Hill 
and  we  immediately  went  to  entrenching.     Flung  up  by  morning  an  entrenchment  about  1(10  feet  square.     Done  principally  by  our  Reg 


iment  under  Putnam's  directions.     Had  but  little  sleep  the  night." 


FOURTH  REGIMENT-COL  HINMAN'S-1775. 


[Raised  on  the  first  call  for  troops,  April-May,  1775,  and  recruited  mainly  in  Litchfield  County.     Upon  the  surprise  of  Ft   Ticon- 
deroga,  May  10,  Gov.  Trumbull  ordered  this  regiment  to  march  as  soon  as  possible  to  secure  that  post  and  Crown  Point  against  recapture 
A  request  to  this  effect  was  also  made  by  the  Continental  Congress.     The  regiment  reached  Ticonderoga  in  June  and  Col    Hinman 
assumed  command  until  the  arrival  of  Gen.  Schuyler.     It  took  part  in  the  operations  of  the  Northern  Department  until  expiration  of  term 
of  service  Dec.,  1775.     Regiment  suffered  much  from  sickness,  and  many  men  were  mustered  out  in  Oct. -Nov.,  1775.]

[Upon  the  capture  of  Fort  Ticonderoga  in  M:ty,  '75,  the  project  of  invading  Canada  became  popular  both  in  Congress  and  the 
Army.  Gen.  Montgomery  having  been  authorized  to  make  the  attempt  by  way  of  Lake  Champlain,  Washington  organized  an  expedi 
tion  to  co-operate  with  him  by  way  of  the  Kennebcc  and  the  Maine  woods.  This  force  was  composed  of  thirteen  companies  of  volun 
teers  detached  from  the  several  New  England  regiments  around  Boston  and  the  Penn.  and  Va.  rifle  companies  lately  arrived  in  camp  — 
the  total  number  of  officers  and  men  being  13(10.  Connecticut's  quota  was  one  full  Company,  100  strong.  Col.  Benedict  Arnold  was 
assigned  to  the  command  of  the  force  with  Lieut.  Cols.  Green,  of  K.  I.,  and  Enos,  of  Conn.,  and  Maj's  Bigelow  of  Mass,  and  Meigs 
of  Conn.,  as  the  other  field  officers.  The  Connecticut  Co.  was  commanded  by  Capt.  Hanchett.  Montgomery  and  Arnold  joined  forces 
before  Quebec  and  atlempted  its  capture  by  assault,  Dec.  31,  '75,  with  the  well  known  disastrous  result.]

NOTES  ON  THE  SERVICE,   1775. 

AKMS  AND  ACCOUTREMENTS.  —  At  the  special  April  session  of  the  Legislature,  when  the  first  regiments  were  called  out, 
it  was  enacted  that  the  enlisted  men  should  be  furnished  with  good  fire-arms,  belonging  to  the  colony,  if  they  were  unable  to 
furnish  themselves;  and  if  they  found  their  own  arms,  to  be  paid  10s.  for  the  use  of  such  arms.  And  in  case  more  arms  should  be 
required  they  were  to  be  impressed  from  householders  not  enrolled;  ten  shillings  were  to  be  awarded  to  all  who  offered  guns,  bayo 
nets,  and  cartouch  boxes  to  the  soldiers.  It  was  resolved  at  the  same  time  that  three  thousand  stand  of  arms  be  procured  for  the 
colony,  "of  the  following  dimensions,  to  wit:  the  length  of  the  barrel  three  feet  ten  inches,  the  diameter  of  the  bore  from  inside 
to  inside  three-quarters  of  an  inch,  the  length  of  the  blade  of  the  bayonet  fourteen  inches,  the  length  of  the  socket  four  inches  and 
one-quarter;  that  the  barrels  be  of  suitable  thickness,  with  iron  ramrods  and  a  spring  in  the  lowest  loop  to  secure  the  ramrods, 
a  good  substantial  lock,  and  a  good  stock  well  mounted  with  brass  and  marked  with  the  name  or  initial  letters  of  the  maker's  name." 
Col.  Records,  Vol.  XIV,  p.  420.  Officers  wore  swords,  or  "hangers"  as  then  commonly  called. 

Soldiers'  Rations.  — -At  the  May  session,  the  ration  for  the  troops  was  fixed  as  follows:  Three-fourths  of  a  pound  of  pork  or 
one  pound  of  beef,  one  pound  of  bread  or  flour,  three  pints  of  beer  to  each  man  per  day  —  beef  to  be  fresh  two  days  in  a  week ; 
also,  a  half-pint  of  rice  or  a  pint  of  Indian  meal ;  six  ounces  of  butter,  and  three  pints  of  peas  or  beans  each  man  per  week.  Sol 
diers  on  fatigue  duty  were  to  be  allowed  one  gill  of  rum  each  per  day,  and  at  no  other  time.  Milk,  candles,  soap,  molasses,  vinegar, 
coffee,  chocolate,  sugar,  tobacco,  and  vegetables  in  season,  were  to  be  provided  subject  to  the  order  of  general  and  field  officers. 
After  the  troops  became  Continental,  the  ration,  as  authorized  by  Congress,  was  not  as  liberal,  either  in  quantity  or  variety,  as  the 
colony  allowance. 

Pay  of  Officers  and  Soldiers.  — At  the  April  session  the  following  was  established  as  the  pay  per  calendar  month  for  officers

Uniforms  and  Camp  Equipage.  —  The  troops  for  1775  were  generally  without  uniforms.  They  inarched  in  citizens' clothes, 
with  blankets  and  knapsacks.  A  few  exceptions  are  noted,  such  as  Captain  Chester's  Wethersfield  Company,  of  the  Second  Regi 
ment,  which  was  clothed  "wholly  in  blue  turned  up  with  red,"  and  Captain  Arnold's  company  of  Governor's  Guards,  New  Haven, 
in  the  Lexington  alarm.  Individual  officers  provided  themselves  with  uniforms,  but  their  rank  was  distinguished  by  different  col 
ored  ribbons,  which  they  were  directed  to  wear. 

Camp  equipage  consisted  of  tents  or  "marques"  for  officers,  tents  for  soldiers,  and  tin  and  brass  kettles,  iron  pots,  frying 
pans,  wooden  bowls,  and  quart  cups  for  company  cooking  and  "messes."  Each  company  was  allowed  one  cart  or  wagon. 

Regimental  Standards.  —  It  was  enacted  by  the  Legislature  that  the  eight  regiments  of  '75  should  be  distinguished  by  flags  of 
different  colors,  as  follows:  1st  Regt.,  yellow;  2d  Regt.,  blue;  3d  Regt.,  scarlet;  4th  Regt.,  crimson ;  5th  Regt.,  white;  6th  Regt., 
azure;  7th  Regt,  blue(?);  8th  Regt.,  orange. 


PRISONERS. 

Beyond  the  men  of  Captain  Hanchctt's  company,  captured  at  the  assault  on  Quebec,  few  Connecticut  sol 
diers  were  taken  prisoners  in  '75.  Six  or  seven  were  captured  at  Bunker  Hill,  as  noted.  The  following 
surrendered  with  Col.  Ethan  Allen  near  Montreal,  Sept.  25,  and  were  confined  in  jail  at  Halifax: 

Roger  Moore,  Salisbury;  Lcvi  Barn  urn  and  Ebenezer  Mack,  Norfolk;  John  Gray,  Samuel  Lewis,  Adonijah 
Muxum,  David  Goss  [Goff?],  Sharon;  Itlmriel  Flowers,  Hartford;  Charles  Stewart,  Stamford;  Jona 
than  Mahn,  Goshen;  William  Drinkwater,  New  Milford;  Zachuriah  Brinsinade,  Woodbury;  John 
James  Burque,  Preston  Denton,  Barnabas  Cone;  Peter  Noble  (made  his  escape  at  Cape  Fear,  North 
Carolina). — Levi  Munson,  of  Wallingford,  taken  with  the  same  party,  was  sent  to  England  with 
others,  but  returned  to  Halifax,  June  21,  '76;  exchanged  later  and  re-ent.  Cont.  service  in  '77.  — Amos 
Green,  of  Branford,  was  captured  in  Northern  Dcpt.  Oct.  20,  '75,  carried  to  Quebec  and  then  to  Eng 
land,  where  he  remained  till  Aug..  '76.  Returning  to  Halifax  he  escaped,  and  in  the  course  of  two 
months  reached  his  home.  

Asa  Whitney,  of  Salisbury,  was  armorer  in  Northern  Dept.  2  months  and  20  days  from  about  July  20,  '75. 


Lieut.  Charles  Smith,  of  Hebron,  belonging  to  Capt.  Hart's  Co.  in  Col.  Sergeant's  Mass.  Regt.  "  absconded  " 
in  Aug.  '75. 

Capt.  Noah  Phelps,  of  Simsbury,  who  figured  in  the  Ticonderoga  Enterprise,  appears  later  as  army  "con

1  This  was  the  Pennsylvania  Rifle  battalion  under  Col.  Thompson,  which  individuals  and  towns  supplied  with  quarters  and  "diet"  as  it  passed  through  Con 
necticut  to  the  Boston  encampment. 


B.    REGIMENTS    FOR    1776. 


ORGANIZATION. —  The  regiments  called  out  in  1775,  although  adopted  as  Continental,  consti- 
tuded  a  provisional  force.  Raised  by  their  respective  colonies  to  meet  an  emergency  their  ser 
vice  was  limited  to  short  terms.  Nearly  all  were  to  disband  in  December,  when  it  was 
expected,  as  had  usually  been  the  case  in  the  French  and  Indian  war,  that  military  operations  would 
cease  for  the  winter.  As  it  was  imperative,  however,  to  continue  to  hem  in  the  enemy  at  Boston  and 
hold  the  ground  gained  in  the  Northern  Department,  as  well  as  prepare  generally  for  a  determined 
struggle,  Congress  at  an  early  date  moved  to  organize  a  new  force  for  1770.  On  Sept.  20,  1775,  Presi 
dent  Hancock  writing  to  Washington  invited  his  attention  to  the  following  points  :  "  The  continuation 
of  the  army  now  under  your  command  in  the  service  of  the  Continent,  after  the  terms  of  its  enlistment 
shall  have  been  completed  ;  the  reducing  of  the  several  corps  of  Provincials,  which  at  present  compose 
your  army,  into  one  body  of  Continental  Forces  ;  what  number  will  be  necessary  for  the  winter  cam 
paign  ;  what  rations  shall  be  allowed  the  men,  and  what  further  regulations  may  be  necessary  for  the 
government  of  those  Forces.  Upon  these  heads  the  Congress  wish  to  be  favored  with  the  result  of  your 
deliberations  as  soon  as  possible."  On  receipt  of  these  instructions  the  Commander-in-Chief  called  a 
council  of  the  General  officers,  Oct.  8th,  to  consider  plans  for  "  the  continuance  and  new-modelling  "  of 
the  army,  when  it  was  advised  that  a  new  force  of  about  twenty  thousand  men  be  raised  to  maintain 
the  position  before  Boston,  and  that  it  be  enlisted  for  one  year  from  Jan.  1,  1770.  Congress  furthermore 
appointed  a  Committee  of  three  —  Dr.  Franklin,  Mr.  Lynch,  and  Col.  Harrison — to  repair  to  Headquar 
ters  at  Cambridge,  and  consult  in  the  matter  in  person  with  Washington  and  delegates  from  the  New 
England  Colonies.  This  Conference  met  on  Oct.  18th  — the  Connecticut  delegates  being  Deputy- 
Governor  Griswold  and  Mr.  Nathaniel  Wales  —  and  after  deliberating  four  days  accepted  the  conclusions 
of  the  General  officers.  It  was  agreed  that,  exclusive  of  riflemen  and  artillery,  twenty-six  regiments 
consisting  each  of  seven  hundred  and  twenty-eight  men  and  officers,  divided  into  eight  companies, 
should  be  raised  under  Continental  directions,  to  serve  until  Jan.  1,  1777.  Connecticut's  quota  remained 
the  same  as  before  —  five  regiments.  Her  delegates  expressed  the  opinion  at  the  Conference  that  "  eight 
thousand  men  may  be  raised  in  their  Province  to  serve  the  next  Campaign  on  the  same  terms  as  the 
present,  viz. :  forty  shillings  bounty." 

On  Nov.  4th,  Congress  adopted  the  report  of  the  Conference,  and  Washington  took  steps  to  organ 
ize  the  new  force.  He  called  upon  and  urged  the  soldiers  already  in  the  field  for  '75  to  re-enlist  for 
another  year,  and  new  lists  of  field  and  line  officers  were  made  out  under  whom  they  were  to  serve.  The 
Connecticut  regiments  of '75  were  "  remodelled  "  on  this  plan.  Gen.  Putnam's  was  given  to  Benedict 
Arnold,  Gen.  Spencer's  continued  under  Col.  Wyllys,  and  Cols.  Parsons,  C.  Webb,  and  Huntington 
remained  in  command  of  their  own  as  before.  In  the  arrangement  of  the  twenty-six  regiments  for  '70 
(afterwards  increased  to  twenty-seven),  Parsons'  was  numbered  the  10th  Continental  Foot,  Hunting- 
ton's  the  17th,  C.  Webb's  the  19th,  Arnold's  the  20th,  and  Wyllys's  the  22d.  They  were  known  as  such 
for  that  year  only.  Many  changes  were  made  among  the  company  officers  by  the  promotion  of  deserv 
ing  subalterns  and  non-commissioned  officers,  to  the  advantage  of  the  commands.  With  few  exceptions 
all  had  been  in  service  in  '75.  In  the  absence  or  loss  of  many  of  the  rolls  for  '70,  it  is  uncertain  how  far 
the  soldiers  of  '75  re-enlisted  for  '70,  but  references  indicate  that  a  considerable  number  returned,  who, 
with  recruits,  filled  the  new  regiments  to  a  respectable  strength  before  spring.  The  Connecticut  Assem 
bly,  at  its  December  session,  had  resolved  that  those  soldiers  "  who  had  or  should  enlist  into  the  Conti 
nental  army  for  the  ensuing  campaign,  should  be  exempt  from  the  poll  tax  on  the  list  of  1770  ;  and  also 
that  their  bodies  should  be  exempt  from  arrests  for  debts  during  their  tour  of  service."

96  CONNECTICUT   IN   THE   REVOLUTION. 

On  Jan.  1,  1770,  when  the  re-organized  army  began  its  new  term,  Washington  issued  the  follow 
ing  order  from  Headquarters  at  Cambridge  : 

"(Parole,  The  Congrest.)  (Countersign,  America.) 

This  day  giving  Commencement  to  the  new  Army,  which,  in  every  point  of  view,  is  entirely  Continental,  the  General  flatters 

himself,  that  a  laudable  spirit  of  emulation   will  now  take  place,  and  pervade  the  whole  of  it His  Excellency  hopes, 

that  the  importance  of  the  great  cause  we  are  engaged  in,  will  be  deeply  impressed  on  every  man's  mind;  and  wishes  it  to  be  con 
sidered,  that  an  army  without  order,  regularity,  and  discipline,  is  no  better  than  a  commissioned  mob.  Let  us  therefore,  when 
every  thing  dear  and  valuable  to  freemen  is  at  stake,  when  our  unnatural  parent  is  threatening  us  with  destruction  from  every 
quarter,  endeavour,  by  all  the  skill  and  discipline  in  our  power,  to  acquire  that  knowledge  and  conduct  which  is  necessary  in  war. 
Our  men  are  brave  and  good;  men  who,  with  pleasure  it  is  observed,  are  addicted  to  fewer  vices  than  are  commonly  found  in 
armies.  But,  it  is  subordination  and  discipline  (the  life  and  soul  of  an  army")  which,  next  under  Providence,  is  to  make  us  formida 
ble  to  our  enemies,  honourable  in  ourselves,  and  respected  in  the  world." 

In  the  Northern  Department  no  similar  reorganization  for  '70  was  effected.  The  Conference  at 
Cambridge  decided  that  "  so  much  depended  upon  events  and  particularly  upon  the  success  of  the  pres 
ent  expedition  against  Canada  (under  Montgomery  and  Arnold)  that  no  probable  calculation  "  could  be 
made  as  to  the  number  of  troops  necessary  in  that  quarter.  The  three  Connecticut  regiments  — Woos- 
ter's,  Hinman's,  and  Waterbury's,  which,  for  various  causes,  had  been  greatly  reduced  in  numbers, 
returned  home  in  December.  As  events  developed  in  Canada,  however, —  the  "  expedition '' being 
defeated  —  Congress,  late  in  '75  and  early  in  '70,  authorized  the  enlistment  of  two  regiments  from  Con 
necticut  to  serve  in  that  department  for  one  year.  They  were  commanded  by  Cols.  Charles  Burrall  and 
Samuel  Elmore.  In  May,  '70,  still  another  regiment  was  called  for,  under  Col.  Andrew  Ward,  which 
joined  Washington  in  the  summer.  This  completed  Connecticut's  quota  of  Continental  troops  for  '76, 
the  same  number  as  in  '75  —  eight  regiments. 

Service. —  The  five  regiments  in  the  army  before  Boston  remained  thereuntil  the  enemy  evacu 
ated  the  place  in  March.  In  April,  they  marched  under  Washington  to  New  York,  the  next  field  of 
operations,  and  assisted  in  fortifying  the  city  and  vicinity.  Col.  Ward's  joined  them  in  August.  Four 
of  them  were  on  the  Brooklyn  side  at  the  time  of  the  Battle  of  Long  Island,  Aug.  27,  '7(5,  and  three  more 
or  less  engaged.  Huntington's  lost  heavily  in  prisoners.  Two  or  three  were  caught  in  the  panic  of  the 
troops  on  abandoning  New  York,  Sept.  loth.  All  were  with  the  army  at  White  Plains,  Oct.  28th,  and 
one  of  them,  Col.  Webb's,  closely  engaged.  Portions  of  three  were  at  Trenton  and  Princeton.  In  the 
Northern  Department,  under  Gen.  Schuyler,  Col.  Bun-all's  regiment  reinforced  the  troops  before  Quebec 
and  afterwards  took  post  at  Ticonderoga.  Col.  Elmore's  was  stationed  at  old  Fort  Stanwix  on  the 
Mohawk,  and  vicinity. 

Knowltorfs  Rangers  and  Bigelow's  Art.  Co.—  These  commands  are  noticed  at  the  end  of  the  regi 
ments  for  1770. 

Reinforcements  of  State  and  Militia  troops  in  1776.—  These  are  noticed  with  rosters  under  their 
.  proper  heads  after  the  Continentals.  Three  militia  regiments  were  ordered  to  Boston  in  January. 
Two  began  fortifying  New  York  in  February-March,  before  the  arrival  of  the  Continental  troops.  In 
June-July,  Gen.  Wadsworth's  brigade  of  seven  regiments  (six  months'  men)  arrived  and  performed  con 
siderable  service.  In  August-September,  twelve  militia  regiments  under  Gen.  Oliver  Wolcott  served 
several  weeks,  as  well  as  nine  more  from  the  eastern  counties  of  the  State,  under  Gen.  Saltonstall.  A 
few  "troops  of  horse"  were  also  on  the  ground  for  brief  terms.  The  militia,  and  the  same  proved  true 
of  those  coming  from  other  colonies,  while  temporarily  swelling  Washington's  army,  failed  to  add  much 
to  its  efficiency  — the  men  being  generally  poorly  armed  and  undisciplined.  Later,  during  the  war, 
their  service  was  more  effective  ;  on  some  occasions  highly  important. 

The  following  rosters  for  '70  are  arranged  from  original  records  in  the  State  Library,  Hartford, 
Department  of  State  and  Pension  Bureau,  Washington,  D.  C.,  the  Trumbull  papers,  Massachusetts  His 
torical  Society,  Boston,  and  from  manuscripts  in  private  hands,  supplemented  with  the  American 
Archives.

NATHAN  HALE.— One  of  the  first  published  notices  of  Hale  appears  in  the  following  extract  from  the  Boston  Chronicle  as  reprinted  in  the  London  Rfmemlirancer 
in  1782.  After  noticing  the  consideration  paid  to  Andrei  the  writer  proceeds: 

"  But  while  we  pay  the  debt  of  humanity  to  our  enemies,  let  us  not  forget  what  we  owe  to  our  friends.  About  four  years  ago,  CAPT.  HALE,  an  American  officer, 
of  a  liberal  education,  younger  than  Andre,  and  equal  to  him  in  sense,  fortitude,  and  every  manly  accomplishment,  though  without  opportunities  of  being  so  highly 
polished,  voluntarily  went  into  the  city  of  New  York,  with  a  view  to  serve  bis  invaded  country.  He  performed  his  part  there  with  great  capacity  and  address,  but 
was  accidentally  discovered.  In  this  trying  circumstance  he  exhibited  all  the  firmness  of  Andre,  without  the  aid  of  a  single  countenance  around  him  that  spoke  either 
respect  or  compassion,  and  though  every  thing  that  was  said  or  done  to  him  was  adopted  to  make  him  feel  that  he  was  consideied  as  a  traitor  and  a  rebel.  Andre 
appeared  great  in  not  contesting  the  clear  grounds  upon  which  he  was  condemned,  and  in  refusing  to  employ  the  absurd  and  frivolous  pleas  that  Clinton  would  have 
put  into  his  mouth.  Hale,  though  not  at  all  disconcerted,  mnde  no  plea  for  himself,  and  firmly  rejected  the  advantageous  oilers  made  him  by  the  enemy  upon  condi 
tion  of  his  entering  into  their  service.  Andre  earnestly  wished  the  mode  of  his  death  might  have  been  more  like  that  of  a  soldier;  but  consoled  himself  by  observing, 
that  in  either  way  it  would  be  '  but  a  moment's  pang.'  Hale,  calm  and  collected,  took  no  notice  of  either  of  those  circumstances.  Andre  as  he  was  going  to  die, 
with  great  presence  of  mind  and  the  most  engaging  air,  bowed  to  all  around  him,  and  returned  the  respect  that  had  been  and  was  still  paid  to  him;  and  said :  '  Gen 
tleman,  you  will  bear  witness  that  I  die  with  the  firmness  becoming  a  soldier.'  Hale  bad  received  no  such  respects,  and  had  none  to  return;  but  just  before  he  ex 
pired,  said,  aloud  :  '  I  am  so  satisfied  with  the  cause  in  which  I  have  engaged,  that  my  only  regret  is,  that  I  have  not  more  lives  than  one  to  oiler  in  its  service.' "

OFFICERS  PRISONERS. 

Capt.  Peter  Perritt,  of  Milford,  in  Col.  Chas.  Webb's  Regt.  '76,  who  had  been,  detached  "  on  command  "  to  serve 
with  the  garrison  at  Fort  Washington,  New  York  Island,  was  taken  prisoner  at  its  surrender,  Nov.  16,  '76. 
Exchanged  Sept.  18,  '78.  He  had  previously  been  appointed  a  Captain  in  the  new  army  for  '77,  and  upon  his 
exchange  presented  himself  for  service,  but  no  vacancy  then  existing  he  was  regarded  as  a  supernumerary  and 
received  pay  and  bounty  as  such.  On  June  21,  '79,  he  was  appointed  Captain  in  a  State  Regt.,  to  serve  one 
year.  He  commanded  a  company  of  "Rangers"  in  the  vicinity  of  Boston  after  the  Lexington  alarm.  See 
p.  28. 

Lieut.  Joseph  Hale  (or  Hall)  is  reported  among  the  Connecticut  officers  taken  prisoners  at  Ft.  Washington,  Nov. 
10,  '76,  and  exchanged  during  the  war.  Captain  Nathan  Ilale  had  a  brother  Joseph  Hale  who  was  a  Lieut, 
in  Col.  Andrew  Ward's  Regt.  He  may  have  been  with  the  garrison  in  the  fort  and  captured. 


KNOWLTON'S  ''RANGERS/3  1776. 


A  FTER  the  American  defeat  on  Long  Island,  Aug.  27,  '76,  a  small  body  of  select  troops  was  organized  for  special  service  along 
•*  ^  the  lines  and  placed  under  the  command  of  Lieut. -Col.  Thomas  Knowlton  of  Durkee's  Conn.  Kcgt.  20th  Continental.  Col. 
Knowlton,  a  veteran  of  the  French  and  Indian  war,  had  distinguished  himself  at  Bunker  Hill  and  in  one  or  two  subsequent  exploits 
during  the  siege  of  Boston,  and  was  peculiarly  fitted  to  lead  a  partisan  corps.  The  detachment  in  question,  known  as  Knowlton's 
"  Rangers,"  was  composed  of  officers  and  men  chosen  from  different  regiments,  to  which  they  were  to  return  when  no  longer  needed. 
Knowlton  appears  to  have  selected  officers  whom  he  knew,  which  accounts  for  the  large  proportion  from  Connecticut;  the  men  also 
were  largely  from  the  same  state.  The  command  was  small,  not  over  one  hundred  and  thirty  or  forty.  Its  first  service  gave  it  no 
little  reputation  in  the  army.  After  the  retreat  from  New  York,  Sept.  15,  '76  —  the  troops  in  general  being  more  or  less  depressed 
—  Washington  ordered  Knowlton  to  move  out  early  on  the  16th  from  Harlem  Heights  and  ascertain  the  position  of  the  enemy. 
Knowlton  marched  over  Bloomingdale  Heights,  and  found  the  enemy's  outposts  somewhere  along  the  line  of  110th  St.  on  the  main 
road,  now  Broadway.  A  skirmish  occurred  and  Knowlton  fell  back  to  the  American  lines,  then  stretching  along  125th  St.  from 
vicinity  of  8th  Avenue  west  to  the  Hudson.  The  British  Light  Infantry  followed  him.  Washington  thereupon  directed  Knowlton 
to  attack  again,  turning  their  right,  while  other  troops  attacked  them  in  front  and  left.  A  successful  engagement  followed,  the 
enemy  being  driven  back  over  the  Bloomingdale  grounds  with  loss.  In  the  affair,  Knowlton  was  mortally  wounded,  and  died  during 
the  action,  greatly  regretted.  In  General  Orders  of  Sept.  17,  Washington  referred  to  him  as  "  the  gallant  and  brave  Col.  Knowlton 
who  would  have  been  an  honour  to  any  country." 

Knowlton's  Senior  Captain — Stephen  Brown,  of  Woodstock — succeeded  to  the  command  of  the  "Rangers,"  but  in  a  few 
days  returned  to  his  regiment  —  Durkee's.  The  other  captains,  so  far  as  the  records  indicate,  were  Thomas  Grosvenor,  of  Pomfret, 
and  Nathan  Hale,  of  Coventry.  Grosvenor  seems  to  have  retired  with  Brown,  and  Hale,  the  "Martyr  Spy,"  was  then  absent 
within  the  enemy's  lines.  As  the  next  commander  of  the  "Rangers,"  Washington  appointed,  Oct.  1,  '76,  Maj.  Andrew  Colburn,  of 
Nixon's  Mass.  Regt.  He  was  wounded  before  the  end  of  the  month  and  retired.  The  command  devolved  thereafter  upon  Lieut., 
afterwards  Captain,  Lemuel  Holmes,  of  Sargeant's  Mass.  Regt.  Upon  the  withdrawal  of  the  army  to  White  Plains  and  subsequently 
through  New  Jersey,  it  was  proposed  either  to  disband  the  "  Rangers  "  or  have  them  accompany  the  main  force;  but  Col.  Robert 
Magaw,  of  Pennsylvania,  then  commanding  at  Fort  Washington,  on  New  York  Island  below  King's  Bridge,  urgently  requested  their 
continuance  with  him  as  being  his  main  dependence  for  the  security  of  his  outposts.  They  accordingly  remained  on  the  Harlem 
lines  until  Nov.  16,  1776,  when  Fort  Washington  and  the  entire  garrison  were  captured  by  the  enemy. 

The  "Rangers"  thus  disappear  as  prisoners.  Oliver  Burnham,  one  of  the  detachment — afterwards  Judge  Burnham,  of 
Conn. — writing  after  the  war,  says:  "We  remained  until  the  sixteenth  of  November  in  this  situation  ("  near  Harlem  ")  when  we 
were  warmly  engaged  on  all  sides.  We  were  about  two  miles  below  the  fort  and  well  sustained  the  attack  until  the  enemy  made 
good  their  landing  across  Harlem  River,  when  we  had  hard  righting  to  reach  the  fort.  Just  as  we  had  reached  the  gate,  the  flag  went 
out  and  surrendered  the  fort  and  ourselves  prisoners  of  war." 

It  is  worth  while  to  note  that  the  first  three  commanders  of  this  corps  fell  in  action  during  the  war — Col.  Knowlton  at 
Harlem  Heights;  Capt.  Brown  at  Ft.  Mifflin,  Penn.,  Nov.  16,  '77;  Maj.  Colburn,  as  Lieut.-Col.,  at  Saratoga,  Sept.  19,  '77.  Capt. 
Holmes,  the  last  in  command,  remained  a  prisoner  two  years. 

The  following  roll  of  the  "Rangers"  is  compiled  from  printed  and  Mss.  records.  The  list  of  non-commissioned  officers  and 
privates  is  arranged  from  the  papers  of  Capt.  Lemuel  Holmes,  now  in  the  Pension  Bureau,  Washington,  and  includes  only  the 
names  of  those  who  were  captured  with  him  at  Ft.  Washington.  It  doubtless  represents  the  greater  part  of  the  original  detachment.

C.    REGIMENTS.  "CONNECTICUT  LINE.' 

FORMATION  OF  1777-1781. 


-OLLOWING  the  organizations  of  '75  and  '70  came  the  most  important  of  all  known  in 
general  as  the  "Continental  Line,"  raised  in  1777  and  continuing  with  modifications  to 
the  close  of  the  war.  It  passed,  so  far  as  the  Connecticut  troops  were  concerned,  through 

four   formations,  the    first  of  which  is  noticed  under  the  present   heading,  C,  covering  the  years  1777 

to  17S1. 

ORGANIZATION. 

Regiment*  of  the  "Connecticut  Line.'' --The  experiences  of  the  first  two  years  of  the  war,  es 
pecially  the  failure  in  Canada  and  the  defeats  in  the  campaign  around  New  York  in  '70,  had  demon 
strated  that  the  contest  could  not  he  successfully  carried  on  with  troops  enlisted  for  short  terms. 
The  need  of  a  permanent,  disciplined  army  to  cope  with  the  British  "regulars"  was  recognized  as 
urgent.  Congress,  accordingly,  by  resolutions  of  Sept.  Kith,  20th,  and  Oct.  8th,  1770,  provided  for 
such  a  body.  The  "establishment"  of  the  current  year  would  disband  on  Dec.  31,  leaving  the 
country  practically  at  the  mercy  of  the  enemy  should  they  be  disposed  to  push  a  vigorous  winter 
campaign.  To  take  the  place  of  this  out-going  force  it  was  enacted  that  eighty-eight  infantry  regi 
ments  be  raised  for  continuous  service  to  the  end  of  the  war  unless  otherwise  ordered.  They  were 
proportioned  among  the  States  according  to  their  population.  Thus,  Massachusetts  and  Virginia 
were  to  furnish  each  fifteen  regiments,  Pennsylvania  twelve,  New  York  four,  Maryland  and  Con 
necticut  each  eight,  and  the  rest  in  like  ratio.  As  a  body  they  were  to  form  a  grand  "Continental 
Line,"  and  would,  so  far,  resemble  the  "Regiments  of  the  Line"  in  the  British  establishment.  They 
differed  from  the  latter,  however,  in  this  respect,  that  instead  of  being  numbered  consecutively  in 
the  main  line  the  regiments  of  each  State  formed  a  sub-division  by  themselves  and  were  numbered 
from  the  "First"  to  the  "Fifth,"  or  the  "Eighth"  or  the  "Fifteenth,"  and  so  on,  as  the  case 
might  be.  Each  State  quota  thus  became  a  "Line"  in  itself,  which  was  designated  by  its  State 
name.  Hence,  the  " Massachusetts  Line,"  the  " South  Carolina  Line,"  the  "Connecticut  Line,"  &c. , — 
each  being  a  distinct  body,  commanded  by  officers  from  its  own  State,  and  cared  for  by  its  own 
State,  as  well  as  by  Congress.  Inspired  by  a  common  cause,  and  welded  in  homogeneous  form  un 
der  the  leadership  of  Washington,  it  was  these  State  "Lines,"  facing  the  enemy  as  a  single  "Con 
tinental  Line,"  that  were  to  bear  the  burden  of  the  war  for  the  next  six  years  and  bring  it  to  a 
successful  close. 

The  organization  of  this  new  army,  as  such,  was  to  date  from  Jan.  1,  1777.  The  regiments 
were  to  consist  of  eight  companies.  Soldiers  could  enlist  for  one  of  two  terms  of  service  —  either 
"for  three  years"  or  "during  the  war."  The  particular  terms  under  which  the  recruiting  was  to  be 
conducted  were  published  as  follows  in  the  Connecticut  papers  of  the  day  : 

"  RECRUITING  INSTRUCTIONS 
For 


You  arc  immediately  to  enlist  into  the  service  of  the  United  States  of  America,  all  able-bodied  men,  who  are  willing  to  enter 
into  the  service,  on  the  following  terms,  viz. : 

First,  You  are  not  to  enlist  any  but  Freemen,  able  of  body  and  under  the  age  of  fifty,  carefully  avoiding  all  persons  laboring 
under  lameness  or  other  defects  of  body  prejudicial  to  the  service;  if  any  such  or  boys  are  brought  in,  the  officer  inlisting  them  will 
be  chargeable  for  the  expence  they  may  be  to  the  public. 

(125) 


126  CONNECTICUT  IN  THE  REVOLUTION. 

Secondly,  You  are  not  to  enlist  any  deserters  from  the  army  of  the  king  of  Great  Britain,  or  persons  of  a  disaffected  or  sus 
picious  character,  the  American  service  having  suffered  greatly  by  the  desertion  of  such  persons. 

Thirdly,  You  are  to  enlist  to  serve  three  years,  or  during  the  continuance  of  the  present  war  between  Great  Britain  and  the 
American  States,  unless  sooner  discharged  by  proper  authority. 

Fourthly,  The  men,  by  you  enlisted,  are  to  be  subject  to  the  rules  and  articles  for  the  government  of  the  army,  published  by 
the  Congress  the  20th  of  September,  1776,  and  are  to  sign  those  articles. 

As  an  encouragement  to  such  persons  as  shall  enlist  into  the  above  service,  you  are  authorized  to  engage,  besides  the  pay  and 
provisions  now  allowed, 

First,  That  every  soldier  shall  upon  being  approved  by  a  Major  General,  a  Brigadier  General,  or  Colonel  Commandant  of  a 
Brigade,  and  some  Surgeon,  be  entitled  to  a  Bounty  of  Twenty  Dollars  and  a  suit  of  clothes,  which  suit  of  clothes  shall  be  given 
annually. 

Secondly,  He  shall  also  be  entitled  to  One  Hundred  Acres  of  Land  at  the  expiration  of  his  term  of  enlistment,  and  in  case  of 
his  death,  in  the  service,  his  representatives  shall  be  entitled  thereto. 

When  any  person  is  inlisted  you  are  as  soon  as  convenient,  to  take  him  to  some  person  duly  authorized  by  the  above  articles, 
to  administer  the  oath  therein  prescribed. 

To  encourage  the  brave  and  spirited  to  enter  into  the  service,  the  General  promises  them  all  the  plunder  they  shall  take  from 
the  enemy,  to  be  equally  divided  among  the  officers  and  men,  according  to  their  pay. 

Given  at  Head  Quarters,  17th  day  of  Dec.,  1776. 

Jiy  His  Excellency  General  WASHINGTON." 

The  Legislature  of  Connecticut  added  some  further  inducements,  promising  to  increase  the 
soldier's  pay  and  provide  the  sick  and  wounded  with  "all  necessaries  for  their  comfort  and  relief.'' 

The  officers  for  this  army  were  selected  with  care.  This  was  expressly  required  hy  the  reso 
lutions  of  Congress.  As  these  officers  were  to  be  nominated  by  their  respective  State  authorities 
and  then  commissioned  by  Congress,  several  of  the  Legislatures  sent  committees  to  Washington's 
army  of  '70,  before  it  disbanded,  to  confer  with  the  General  officers  and  others  as  to  proper  ap 
pointments.  This  was  done  by  Connecticut  with  the  result  that,  with  a  very  few  exceptions,  no 
officers  were  appointed  for  the  eight  regiments  of  the  State  "Line"  who  had  not  seen  previous  ser 
vice  in  '75  or  '70.  They  were  largely  taken  from  the  Continental  regiments  of  '70  and  from  Wads- 
worth's  Brigade  of  State  troops  which  served  for  six  months  with  those  regiments.  ,As  to  the 
enlisted  men  the  incompleteness  of  the  rolls  of  the  eight  regiments  for  '70  prevents  any  comparison 
which  might  show  what  proportion  continued  in  the  new  regiments.  But  it  is  known  that  a  large 
number  re-enlisted. 

The  following  notice,  published  by  John  Lawrence,  Esq.,  the  State  Treasurer,  indicates  the 
pressure  upon  the  State  funds  at  this  time  : 

"  The  Treasurer  of  the  State  of  Connecticut  hereby  notifies  all  constables,  and  collectors  of  the  Taxes  due  to  this  State,  that 
he  expects  they  respectively  pay  off  their  Arrearages;  otherwise  he  shall  be  obliged  to  issue  out  his  Warrants  indiscriminately, 

against  those  who  are  delinquent The  present  Call  for  Money  is  so  great,  that  notwithstanding  some  Taxes  which  are 

granted  are  not  payable  till  May  next;  yet  the  Treasurer  earnestly  desires  every  Friend  to  this  State  to  exert  himself,  and  readily 
discharge  said  Kates,  that  he  may  be  able  to  satisfy  the  generous  Soldiers  who  have  been  in  Defence  of  their  Country,  and  likewise 
payoff  the  Battalions  now  raising  for  the  same  noble  Purpose.  Money  is  the  Sinews  of  War  —  and  to  have  a  full  Supply  at  this 
Juncture,  is  of  the  last  Importance.  Without  Money  it  is  impossible  for  us  to  raise  a  new  Army,  the  absolute  Necessity  of  which 
must  be  known  to  all.  It  is  hoped  that  every  one  will  so  generously  pay  his  Rates,  and  the  Constables  so  speedily  collect  and  settle 
them,  that  for  the  Future  not  a  Single  Order  may  be  refused  at  this  Office. 

Treasury  Office,  January  27,  1777." 

Additional  Troops.  —  Congress,  furthermore,  called  upon  the  States  to  recruit  soldiers  for  the 
different  arms,  Cavalry,  Artillery,  &c.,  and  also  provided  for  the  enlistment  of  what  were  known  as 
the  "additional"  infantry  regiments  of  this  formation.  Sixteen  of  these  were  authorized,  but  only 
thirteen  were  organized.  Eecruited  at  large,  they  came  more  or  less  under  Washington's  immediate 
supervision,  and  their  field  officers  were  in  the  main  appointed  by  himself.  Of  these  regiments  Con 
necticut  raised  the  one  commanded  by  Washington's  late  aid-de-camp,  Col.  Samuel  B.  Webb,  and 
about  half  of  the  one  commanded  by  Col.  Sherburne  of  Rhode  Island,  of  which  Return  Jonathan 
Meigs  was  the  first  appointed  Lieut. -Colonel.  The  State  also  contributed  several  companies,  as  ap 
pears  by  the  rosters,  to  Col.  Moses  Hazeu's  regiment,  sometimes  called  the  "Canadian,"  recruited 
"at  large,"  but  not  one  of  the  sixteen  mentioned  above,  and  to  Col.  Seth  Warner's  regiment  which 
was  credited  to  the  "  Hampshire  Grants."  In  addition  companies  were  raised  in  the  State  for  Col.

Jeduthan  Baldwin's  Regiment  of  "Artificers"  and  part  of  a  company  for  Col.  Flower's  Artillery 
"Artificers."  A  majority  of  the  men  in  the  small  but  valuable  c.orps  of  "  Sappers  and  Miners  "  were 
from  Connecticut,  but  they  appear  to  have  been  detached  from  the  regiments  of  the  "  Line." 

Of  the  four  Continental  regiments  of  Cavalry  or  "  Light  Dragoons  "  raised  at  this  time,  the 
Second  or  Sheldon's  was  credited  to  Connecticut,  though  a  few  of  the  officers  and  men  belonged  to 
other  States.  Of  the  four  Continental  regiments  of  Artillery  called  for,  the  Second  or  Lamb's  was 
raised  largely  in  the  State  of  New  York.  Connecticut's  contribution  to  it  consisted  of  the  Lieut.  - 
Colonel,  Eleazer  Oswald  (see  pp.  31,  91,  n.),  and  four  companies  numbering  in  the  aggregate  one 
hundred  and  seventy  men,  or  about  one-quarter  of  the  regimental  strength.  One  company  of  Crane's 
First  Artillery,  mainly  from  Massachusetts,  was  commanded  by  Capt.  Buckland  of  Hartford,  and 
contained  some  of  the  men  who  originally  belonged  to  Bigelow's  Artillery  Company  of  '7G. 

Inclusive  of  the  several  detachments  named  Connecticut's  contribution  to  the  "  Continental 
Line  "  of  '77-'81  consisted  of  about  ten  and  a  half  regiments  of  infantry,  one  regiment  of  cavalry, 
and  five  companies  of  artillery.

progressed,  and  the  men  were  ordered  to  assemble  at  given  points  and  prepare  to  take  the  field.

In  the  fall  of  '80  Col.  Samuel  B.  Webb's  regiment  was  annexed  to  the  "Connecticut  Line"  as 
the  !)th  Regt.  The  1st  Regt.  during  the  greater  part  of  '77  and  '78  was  known  as  Prentice's,  that 
officer  being  its  Lieut.  -Colonel  in  command  before  Col.  Starr  took  charge.  The  8th  Regt.  also  was 
known  by  the  name  of  its  Lieut.  -Colonel,  Mead,  who  commanded  during  the  spring  and  summer  of  '78. 

On  April  U,  '77,  Gen.  Parsons,  in  published  orders,  directed  Huiitmgton's  and  Durkee's  regi 
ments  to  rendezvous  at  Norwich,  Wyllys's  at  Hartford,  Douglas's  at  New  Haven,  Swift's  at  New 
Milford,  Chas.  Webb's,  Bradley's,  and  Chandler's  at  Danbury,  S.  B.  Webb's  at  Wethersfield,  and 
Lieut.  -Col.  Meigs,  with  the  half  of  Sherburne's  regiment  under  his  command,  at  Middletown.  From 
these  points  the  troops  were  ordered  to  march  to  Peekskill,  N.  Y.,  as  soon  as  possible.  On  account 
of  its  central  location  on  the  Hudson,  Peekskill  had  been  designated  as  the  encampment  for  nearly 
all  the  New  England  and  New  York  troops  then  taking  the  field,  and  by  the  middle  of  July  sev 
eral  brigades  had  assembled  there.  In  the  early  part  of  the  season  Maj.-Gen.  McDougall  com 
manded  at  that  point,  but  was  relieved  about  July  1st  by  Maj.-Gen.  Putnam.  Nearly  all  the  Con 
necticut  infantry  mentioned  above,  together  with  a  few  companies  of  Dragoons  under  Lieut.  -Col. 
Blagden  and  of  artillery  under  Lieut.  -Col.  Oswald  reported  at  Peekskill  during  the  summer.  The 
regiments  were  assigned  to  brigades,  but  many  changes  were  made,  and  it  was  not  until  a  year 
later  that  the  permanent  organization  of  the  "Connecticut  Line"  into  one  division  of  two  brigades 
under  Gens.  Parsons  and  Huntington  respectively,  was  effected. 


128  CONNECTICUT   IN  THE   REVOLUTION. 

Danhury  Raid  and  Say  Harbor  Expedition.  —While  the  regiments  were  thus  organizing  and 
going  into  camp,  the  enemy  under  Tryon  attempted  their  expedition  against  Danbury,  April  25-28, 
77.  Among  the  Continental  officers  present  who  led  troops  against  them  were  Geii.  Wooster,  mor 
tally  wounded,  Gen.  Arnold,  Col.  Lamb,  Col.  Huntington,  Col.  Bradley,  and  others.  The  troops  on 
the  ground  were  mainly  militia,  but  casualties  are  reported  in  Wyllys's  and  Bradley's  Continentals. 
The  regiments  of  the  "Line"  appear  not  to  have  been  available  just  at  that  time  —  a  fact  of  which 
Tryon  was  doubtless  aware.  Some  were  at  Peekskill  and  others  scattered  at  points  of  rendezvous 
unarmed.  The  record  of  the  militia  under  Gen.  Silliman  and  others  appears  under  its  proper  head. 

Tryon's  incursion  was  offset  three  weeks  later  by  a  dash  made  by  Lieut.  -Col.  Meigs  at  the 
enemy's  stores  at  Sag  Harbor,  L.  I.  Gen.  Parsons  having  authorized  and  encouraged  the  expedition, 
Meigs  selected  one  hundred  and  seventy  men  from  the  rendezvous  at  New  Haven,  and  leaving 
Guilford  on  May  23d  in  thirteen  whale  boats,  struck  across  the  Sound,  marched  rapidly  to  Sag 
Harbor,  burned  twelve  vessels  and  a  large  quantity  of  hay,  took  ninety  prisoners,  and  returned 
without  the  loss  of  a  man.  Congress  voted  Col.  Meigs  a  sword  for  his  successful  exploit.  The  Col 
onel  as  well  as  Gen.  Parsons  soon  after  reported  in  the  field  at  Peekskill. 

Brandywine  and  Germantoum.  —  The  campaign  of  77  was  inaugurated  by  the  enemy.  Bur- 
goyne  approaching  from  the  North  and  Howe  aiming  at  Philadelphia  called  for  a  cautious  distribu 
tion  of  the  American  forces.  As  soon  as  the  British  plans  were  clearly  developed  the  Peekskill 
camp  was  demided  of  its  troops.  The  New  York  and  Massachusetts  regiments  were  sent  to  Schuyler 
and  Gates,  and  six  of  the  nine  Connecticut  regiments  with  the  two  from  Rhode  Island  were  ordered 
at  different  times  to  Washington's  main  army  in  Pennsylvania.  The  Connecticut  "Line"  remained 
intact  at  Peekskill.  engaging  occasionally  in  .expeditions  towards  King's  Bridge,  until  after  the 
American  defeat  at  Brandywine,  Sept.  11,  77,  when  Washington  directed  Putnam  to  send  him  rein 
forcements.  Putnam  at  once  dispatched  Durkee's,  Bradley's,  Swift's,  and  Chandler's  regiments, 
under  Gen.  McDougall,  who  duly  reported  to  Washington.  His  command  arrived  in  time  to  partici 
pate  in  the  battle  of  German  town,  Oct.  4.  It  was  assigned  to  Greene's  Division  on  the  left  flank  of 
the  entire  line,  and  in  action  encountered  the  enemy's  Light  Infantry.  The  course  of  the  battle  at 
this  point  appears  to  have  been  the  same  as  at  all  points  throughout  the  line.  In  the  initial  attack 
Washington  gained  ground,  but  the  murky  atmosphere  and  the  unfortunate  diversion  at  the  Chew 
House  compelled  a  retreat.  One  of  the  Connecticut  officers,  probably  Chandler,  reported  the  result 
to  Gov.  Trumbull  very  briefly  thus  : 

"The  retreat  in  general  was  safe  and  good.  The  army  is  now  returned  to  the  old  encampment,  our  Brigade  being  on  one  of 
the  Hanks.  As  to  the  killed  and  wounded  Returns  are  now  making  up;  it  will  not  exceed  500.  For  my  Regt.  22  killed,  &c.,  Dur- 
key's  «fc  Swift's  much  short,  Bradley's  something  more."  —  [  Trumbull  Papers.] 

Gens.  Varnum  and  Huntington  were  also  ordered  to  Washington's  army,  but  did  not  arrive 
until  after  the  battle:  They  brought  the  Rhode  Island  regiments  and  the  1st  Conn.,  then  known  as 
Prentice's.  On  the  Ifith  of  October,  in  rearranging  the  troops,  Washington  assigned  McDougall  to 
the  command  of  the  new  division  composed  of  Varnum's  and  Huntington's  brigades,  as  follows  :

Respecting  the  battle  of  Brandywine,  preceding  Germantown  —  no  Eastern  troops  were  at  that 
time  with  Washington  as  separate  corps.  Major  Tallmadge,  with  a  detachment  of  the  2d  Dragoons, 
had  been  moving  with  the  army,  but  was  not  actively  engaged  on  that  occasion.  The  Connecticut 
company  in  Col.  Moses  Hazen's  Regt.  took  part  in  the  action,  and  its  Captain,  Jeremiah  Parmelee, 
of  New  Haven,  received  a  wound  from  the  effects  of  which  he  died  in  the  following  spring.  He 
had  served  in  the  Northern  Department  from  the  opening  of  the  war.  Several  if  not  all  the 
State's  companies  in  Baldwin's  corps  of  Artificers  were  also  on  the  field. 


REGIMENTS,   "  CONNECTICUT   LINE,"  1777-1781.  129 

Fort  Mifflin,  Mud  Island,  Perm.—  After  Germantown,  Washington  made  an  effort  to  command 
the  Delaware  below  Philadelphia  —  the  city  being  occupied  by  the  enemy -and  for  a  time  succeeded. 
It  furnished  the  occasion  for  a  brave  and  spirited  defence  of  the  two  American  forts  on  opposite 
sides  of  the  river.  On  the  left  bank  Col.  Greene,  of  Varnum's'  Brigade,  repulsed  the  determined 
attack  of  Donop  on  Ft.  Mercer.  At  Ft.  Mifflin,  Mud  Island,  on  the  right  bank,  Col.  Smith,  of  Mary 
land,  tenaciously  held  his  ground  against  the  overwhelming  fire  from  the  enemy's  shipping.  Ex 
haustion  and  a  wound,  however,  compelled  him  to  retire,  and  it  also  became  necessary  to  relieve 
the  greater  part  of  the  devoted  garrison.  It  fell  to  Varnum's  Brigade  to  furnish  the  relief,  which 
consisted  of  detachments  from  Durkee's  and  Chandler's  companies,  under  Lieut. -Col.  Giles  Russell  of 
the  latter  regiment.  This  change  took  place  on  the  12th  of  November,  '77.  Russell,  a  veteran  of  four 
campaigns  in  the  French  and  Indian  war,  in  one  of  which  he  was  wounded,  and  whom  Varnum 
reports  as  a  sensible  and  excellent  officer,  was  "totally  destitute  of  health,"  and  soon  requested  to 
be  relieved.  Maj.  Thayer,  of  Rhode  Island,  succeeded  him  as  volunteer,  and  the  garrison  under  his 
direction  continued  its  remarkable  defence  under  a  still  closer  and  more  effective  fire  from  the 
British  ships.  On  the  10th,  further  resistance  being  out  of  the  question,  the  ruined  fort  was  aban 
doned.  The  Connecticut  detachment,  which  bore  the  brunt  of  the  bombardment,  suffered  seriously. 
"We  have  lost  some  gallant  officers  and  men,"  wrote  Gen.  Huntington  to  Governor  Trumbull,  and 
he  specially  mentioned  Capt.  Stephen  Brown,  one  of  Knowlton's  favorite  officers  in  the  "Rangers" 
of  the  previous  year.  This  officer  was  killed  by  a  round  shot  from  one  of  the  enemy's  ships,'  and 
Capt.  Nathan  Stoddard,  of  Chandler's,  suffered  the  same  fate  in  a  similar  way. 
Washington  soon  after  withdrew  towards  Valley  Forge. 

Putnam  on  the  Hudson.  — The  Burgoyne  Campaign.  — So  many  regiments  had  been  ordered 
from  the  Peekskill  camp  to  report  to  Gates  on  the  upper  Hudson  or  to  Washington  in  Pennsyl 
vania,  that  on  Oct.  1,  '77,  Gen.  Putnam  had  but  one  Continental  brigade  at  his  command.  This 
was  Parsons',  which  consisted  of  the  three  remaining  regiments  of  the  Connecticut  "Line,"  namely, 
Wyllys's,  Chas.  Webb's,  and  Meigs',  together  with  Samuel  B.  Webb's  and  Sherburne's  "additional." 
A  considerable  body  of  militia  was  on  its  way  from  Connecticut  to  reinforce  him. 

The  enemy  under  Sir  Henry  Clinton  at  New  York  moved  up  the  Hudson  in  October  to 
attempt  the  relief  of  Burgoyne.  With  his  superior  force  and  under  cover  of  boats  and  shipping 
Clinton  was  able  to  deceive  Putnam  as  to  his  line  of  advance  —  whether  on  the  east  or  west  side  of 
the  river  — and  by  a  rapid  move  attacked  and  captured  Forts  Clinton  and  Montgomery.  Subse 
quently  Kingston  was  burned.  Putnam  fell  back,  marching  up  the  Hudson,  and  was  prepared  to 
interpose  himself  between  Clinton  and  Gates,  reinforcing  the  latter  in  case  the  former  persisted  in 
his  original  design.  Clinton,  however,  returned  to  New  York,  and  Putnam  resumed  his  position  at 
Peekskill.  In  the  spring  of  '78  a  Court  of  Inquiry,  consisting  of  Gens.  McDougall  and  Huntington 
and  Col.  Wigglesworth,  of  Mass.,  investigated  the  causes  of  the  loss  of  the  two  forts  mentioned 
above,  and  exonerated  Gen.  Putnam. 

In  the  movements  against  Burgoyne  no  Continental  infantry  from  Connecticut  took  part,  her 
nine  regiments  having  been  engaged  under  Washington  and  Putnam.  One  company  of  Sheldon's 
Dragoons,  under  Capt.  Thomas  Y.  Seymour,  had  been  detached  to  Gen.  Gates'  force ;  otherwise 
Connecticut  was  represented  on  that  field  by  militia,  as  noticed  under  that  head.  Two  of  the 
militia  regiments — Cook's  and  Latmer's  —  did  excellent  service  during  the  campaign. 

Whitemarsh,  Penn. — After  Burgoyne's  surrender  Washington  called  for  more  troops  from 
the  northern  camps.  From  Parsons'  Connecticut  Brigade  Col.  Chas.  Webb's  regiment  was  detached. 
It  set  out  Nov.  1-1,  '77,  and  on  Dec.  8  engaged  in  a  brisk  action  with  enemy  at  Whitemarsh,  Penn., 
in  which  two  young  Lieutenants  and  a  number  of  men  were  killed  and  wounded.  Not  properly 
supported  by  the  militia  the  few  Continental  troops  were  compelled  to  fall  back,  leaving  the  ground 
in  the  enemy's  hands.

CONNECTICUT  IN  TUB  REVOLUTION. 

RECORD   FOR  1778. 

Winter  at  Volley  Forae.  '7?-'?.s'.  —  Col.  Chas.  Webb's  Regt.  appears  to  have  been  attached  to 
Huntington's  brigade,  so  that  McDougall's  Division  as  it  went  into  quarters  at  Valley  Forge 
consisted  of  the  two  Rhode  Island  regiments  and  the  six  regiments  of  the  Connecticut  "Line" 
commanded  by  Cols.  Durkee,  Bradley,  Swift,  Chandler,  C.  Webb,  and  the  1st  Regt.  under  Lieut. -Col. 
Prentice.  They  remained  with  the  main  army  through  that  memorable  winter.  The  towns  of  the 
State  sent  some  contributions  of  clothes,  but  the  suffering  of  the  soldiers  was  for  a  time  extreme. 
As  spring  opened  they  recovered  their  spirits  and  fell  to  drilling  under  Steuben's  new  tactics. 

Battle  of  Moninontli.  —  From  Valley  Forge  Washington  moved  out  in  June  '78  to  follow  the 
enemy  in  their  withdrawal  from  Philadelphia  to  New  York.  Overtaking  them  near  Monmouth  Court 
House,  N.  J.,  June  28,  he  forced  and  won  the  well-known  battle  of  that  name.  As  a  reminiscence 
of  the  victory  there  is  preserved  in  MSS.  the  following  order  issued  by  Gen.  Huntington  to  his 
own  regiments  on  the  morning  of  the  engagement: 

"Brigade  Orders,  June  28,  above  English  Town  where  the  Troops  were  formed  to  march  to  Freehold. 

Officers  &  N.  Com.  offi'  will  speak  to  their  men  and  make  themselves  known  to  their  respective  Commands.  The  men 
to  observe  their  file  Leaders,  &  right  and  left  hand  men  that  they  may  know  their  places. 

(•apt.  Converse  is  to  act,  on  the  present  occasion  as  assistant  Brigade  Major,  &  is  to  be  obeyed  accordingly. 

The  officers  will  as  far  as  consistent  with  their  particular  commands,  have  regard  to  the  commands  of  Superior  officers 
&  supply  vacancies  as  may  be  needful. 

Gen.  Huntington  has  the  fullest  confidence  in  the  Bravery  and  abilities  of  his  officers  and  Men  —  doubts  not  they  will 
preserve  a  cool  &  determined  spirit,  and  confiding  in  the  Justice  of  .their  cause,  and  in  the  God  of  Heaven,  they  will  gain 
honor  to  themselves  and  their  Country."  [  Order  Boole  N.  }'.  Hist.  Soc.] 

Huntington's  Brigade  appears  to  have  formed  part  of  the  main  line  after  Lee's  repulse,  but 
the  other  brigade  of  the  Division,  Varnum's.  which  in  Gen.  Varnum's  absence  in  R.  I.  was 
commanded  by  Col.  Durkee,  was  pushed  to  the  front.  It  engaged  the  enemy  and  in  addition  to 
losses  in  action  became  greatly  exhausted  through  much  marching  and  counter  marching  under 
Lee's  orders.  The  heat  of  the  day  was  excessive.  Durkee  was  wounded  in  the  hand  and  later  in 
the  day  Lieut. -Col.  Russell,  of  the  8th  Regt.,  commanded  the  Brigade. 

Catiij)  at  White  Plain*. — From  Monmouth  Washington  moved  to  White  Plains,  N.  Y., 
and  encamped  near  Chatterton  Hill  and  the  old  battle  ground  of  '70.  There  he  remained  until  late 
in  the  fall  when  the  troops  went  into  winter  quarters  at  different  points.  At  White  Plains  Wash 
ington  was  joined  by  all  the  Continental  regiments  stationed  at  West  Point  and  along  the  Hudson 
under  Putnam  and  Gates,  and  could  thus  present  a  powerful  front.  It  was  the  largest  force  of 
regular  troops  brought  together  in  a  single  encampment  during  the  war  —  a  veritable  ''Continental 
Line"  composed  of  the  greater  part  of  the  various  "Lines"  from  New  Hampshire  to  North  Carolina, 
that  of  New  Jersey  excepted  which  was  then  stationed  in  its  own  State.  The  Rhode  Island  "Line" 
with  Glover's  Mass,  and  H.  B.  Webb's  and  the  "additional"  regiments  were  soon  ordered  to  Rhode 
Island.  With  these  omissions  the  White  Plains  army  was  arranged  in  the  following

It  was  at  this  camp,  White  Plains,  that  the  two  Connecticut  brigades  were  organized  as  they 
subsequently  stood,  until  Jan.  1,  1781.     The  assignment  of  the  regiments  was  as  follows: 

CONNECTICUT  DIVISION,  '78-'81. 
Firot  Brigade.  Second  Brigade 

B.uci.-GKN.  PARSONS.  BHIG.-GEN.  HUNTINOTON. 


Col   Samuel  Wyllys.  1st  Regt.  .......  Col.  Josial,  Starr.

/  Col.  Isaac  Sherman. 

Battle  of  Rhode  Island.  —  Major-Generals  Greene,  Sullivan,  and  Lafayette  (Heath  being  then  at 
Boston  and  Arnold  commanding  at  Philadelphia)  had  been  ordered  with  the  troops  to  Rhode  Island, 
and  on  Aug.  29,  '78,  fought  a  well-sustained  battle  with  the  enemy.  Col.  S.  B.  Webb's  Connecticut 
Regt.,  under  Lieut.  -Col.  Livingston  and  Maj.  Huntington,  and  Sherburne's  Regt.,  were  among  the 
commands  immediately  engaged. 

Arrangement  of  Officers  at  White  Plain  it,  N.  Y.,  '78.  —  Many  disputes  as  to  precedence  in  rank 
having  arisen  since  the  formation  of  the  "  Continental  Line,"  Congress  appointed  a  committee  con 
sisting  of  Messrs.  Roger  Sherman,  Read,  and  Bannister,  to  repair  to  army  headquarters  and  adjust 
the  various  claims.  Orders  were  issued  to  all  officers  concerned  to  present  their  cases,  those  from 
Connecticut  being  notified  as  follows  : 

"White  Plains,  Aug.  29,  '78. 

Cols.  Wyllys,  Bradley,  Swift,  and  Meigs  are  app<  to  settle  the  relative  Ranks  of  the  Lt.-Cols.,  Majors  &  Captains  in  the 
Conn.  Line.  They  are  to  meet  at  Col.  Wyllys's  marque  at  3  o'clock  this  afternoon,  and  make  their  report  to  the  committee  of 
arrangements  at  lid.  Qrs." 

This  was  known  as  the  "Arrangement  of  Nov.  15,  '78"—  the  various  claims  not  being  finally 
settled  until  that  date.  New  commissions  were  issued  under  this  arrangement,  and  in  the  case  of 
the  ''Connecticut  Line  "  the  lists  of  the  several  regiments  as  prepared  for  Roger  Sherman  have  been 
followed  in  the  rosters  of  the  first  formation,  '77-'81.  No  change  was  made  in  the  regiments. 

Winter  Quarters  at  Redding.  —  Breaking  up  the  grand  camp  at  White  Plains  Washington 
distributed  the  troops  into  winter  quarters.  The  greater  part  he  stationed  under  his  immediate  com 
mand  at  Middlebrook,  N.  J.  West  Point  was  garrisoned  by  Massachusetts  men.  The  Connecticut 
Division  with  the  New  Hampshire  Brigade  and  Hazen's  regiment  took  post  at  Redding.  Under 
orders  of  Oct.  22,  '78,  the  division  was  to  leave  White  Plains  the  next  morning  at  7  o'clock  under 
the  Command  of  Maj.  -Gen.  McDougall.  Nixon's  Mass,  brigade  marched  with  it,  but  kept  on  to 
Hartford.  On  Oct.  25,  the  division  reached  New  Milford  and  was  directed  to  go  into  camp  "  in  the 
woods  of  Benjamin  Buckingham."  It  was  called  '•  Camp  Second  Hill,"  and  there  the  troops 
remained  until  Nov.  ID,  when  they  marched  to  Redding.  About  Dec.  1  Gen.  Putnam  assumed  com 
mand  (Gen.  McDougall  going  to  Peekskill),  and  the  division  settled  into  log  huts  for  the  winter. 

RECORD    FOR   1779. 

Redding.  Putnam  at  Horseneck.  Mutiny.  —  From  the  camp  at  Redding  detachments  were 
occasionally  sent  out  to  watch  the  enemy,  and  posts  were  kept  up  on  the  Sound.  On  Dec.  5,  '78, 
Gen.  Parsons  is  reported  with  a  party  at  Horseneck  and  in  Feb.  '70  he  was  there  again  looking 
after  the  guards.  In  the  latter  part  of  the  month  Putnam  was  at  the  same  place  endeavoring  to 
repel  a  superior  force  of  the  enemy  under  Tryon,  and  at  this  time  occurred  his  famous  ride  down 
the  stone  steps  at  Horseneck.  An  authoritative  account  of  this  and  other  incidents  of  camp  life  at 
Redding  appears  in  Humphreys'  "Life  of  Putnam"  -Humphreys  being  Putnam's  Aid-de-camp  at 
the  time. 

On  the  30th  of  Dec.  '78,  the  men  of  Gen.  Huntington's  Brigade  assembled  under  arms,  deter 
mined  to  march  to  Hartford  and  demand  of  the  Legislature  redress  of  grievances.  Gen.  Putnam 


132  CONNECTICUT   IN   THE   REVOLUTION. 

immediately  rode  down  to  their  quarters  and  demanded  by  whose  orders  they  were  paraded.  They 
replied  that  they  had  been  suffering  from  want  of  blankets  and  clothes,  that  their  pay  was  nothing, 
and  that  all  engagements  with  them  should  be  made  good.  Putnam  addressed  them  kindly  and 
firmly  and  they  dispersed  to  their  huts,  remaining  quiet  through  the  season.  Putnam's  report  of 
the  affair,  date  Jan.  79,  appears  in  the  MSS.  "Trumbull  Papers." 

//(  the  Highlands.  —In  May  '70,  the  Connecticut  Division  was  ordered  into  the  field  on  the 
Hudson,  and  early  in  June  it  encamped  in  the  Highlands  opposite  West  Point.  Three  strong  works 
had  been  begun  on  high  ground  there  known  as  the  "North,"  "Middle,"  and  "South"  Redoubts 
on  which  the  troops  continued  work.  Maj.-Gen.  Heath,  of  Massachusetts,  was  assigned  to  the  Con 
tinental  force  on  the  east  side  of  the  river  consisting  of  the  Conn.  "Line"  and  a  division  of  Mass, 
troops  under  Gen.  Robert  Howe.  Gen.  Putnam  had  been  assigned  to  the  command  of  the  right 
wing  of  the  army,  on  the  west  side  of  the  river,  headquarters  at  Smith's  Clove.  It  included 
the  Virginia,  Maryland,  and  Pennsylvania  Divisions.  Before  leaving  quarters  at  Redding  he  issued 
the  following  order,  May  27,  '79: 

"Maj.  General  Putnam  being  about  to  take  command  of  one  of  the  Wings  of  the  Grand  Army,  before  lie  leaves  the 
Troops  who  have  served  under  him  the  winter  past,  thinks  it  his  Duty  to  Signify  to  them  his  entire  approbation  of  their  Reg 
ular  and  Soldier  like  Conduct,  and  wishes  them  (wherever  they  may  happen  to  be  out)  a  Successful  and  Glorious  Campaign." 

Tnjoii'x  Inraxion  of  Connecticut. — On  July  5,  '79,  Tryon  began  his  depredations  by  attacking 
and  "invading"  New  Haven  and  burning  and  pillaging  the  towns  of  Fail-field,  Norwalk,  and  Green 
wich.  The  defence  of  these  places  was  left  to  the  militia.  When  word,  however,  reached  Washing 
ton  he  immediately  ordered  the  Connecticut  Division  to  march  towards  the  coast  with  all  possible 
speed  and  assist  in  repelling  the  enemy  should  they  continue  their  ravages.  Gen.  Heath's  orders 

on  the  occasion  were  as  follows: 

"AFTER  DIVISION  ORDERS, 

MANDEVILLE'S,  July  10,  '79. 

Genl.  Parsons  &  Huntingtons  Brigades  are  to  be  ready  to  march  to  morrow  morning.  If  the  heavy  baggage  is  now  in 
places  of  safety  it  is  to  be  left,  otherwise  it  is  to  be  sent  away  to  some  place  of  security.  The  men  are  to  draw  two  Days 
provision  which  they  are  to  carry  with  them.  The  Oommissarys  will  take  on  as  much  Bread,  salt  meat  it  Hour  as  they  have 
Teams  to  transport.  The  Brigade  tj.  M".  will  arrange  the  Waggons  agreeable  to  the  Regulations  ik  the  Waggon  Masters  will  see 
that  they  observe  their  order.  —  (Jen1  Parsons'  Brigade  to  strike,  pack  &  load  their  tents  as  early  as  possible  it  move  on  ifc 
join  Gen1  Huntington's  who  are  to  remain  at  their  present  post  ready  to  march  when  the  junction  is  formed.  The  guards  & 
Light  Infantry  to  join  their  Respective  Brigades  at  Reveille  beating.  The  troops  to  inarch  as  little  encumbered  as  possible." 

The  Division  marched  as  directed;  but  Tryon  having  sailed  off,  it  missed  an  opportunity  of  de 
fending  its  own  State.  Detachments  from  Butler's  and  Wyllys's  regiments  in  Parsons'  leading  Brigade 
skirmished  with  the  enemy  near  Norwalk. 

Storm  iny  of  titoni/  Point.  —  Returning  to  its  position  on  the  Hudson,  the  Division  was  called  upon 
for  its  proportion  of  companies  for  a  Light  Infantry  Corps  to  be  commanded  by  Gen.  Anthony  Wayne. 
This  body  was  composed  of  four  regiments  of  about  four  hundred  officers  and  men  each,  all  of  whom 
were  selected  for  special  service.  The  Connecticut  Division  contributed  one  full  regiment  under  Col. 
Return  Jonathan  Meigs,  the  Mass.  Division  another,  and  the  right  wing  of  the  army,  including  the  Penn 
sylvania,  Maryland,  Virginia,  and  North  Carolina  troops,  completed  the  other  half  of  the  Corps.  On  the 
night  of  July  15,  '79,  Wayne  assaulted  and  carried  Stony  Point  (which  the  enemy  had  occupied  in  May) 
with  such  skill,  dash,  and  completeness  as  to  win  praises  even  from  the  enemy  themselves.  The  British 
lost  seven  hundred  prisoners,  with  many  killed  and  wounded,  while  the  casualties  in  Wayne's  Corps 
were  comparatively  small.  For  the  organization  of  Meigs'  regiment  and  further  details  see  roster 
toward  the  end  of  present  formation  of  1777-1781. 

Camp  "Robinson's  Farm."-- After  demolishing  the  works,  Wayne's  Corps  abandoned  Stony 
Point,  and  not  long  after  the  enemy  re-occupied  the  position.  The  American  army  remained  as 
before  in  the  vicinity  of  West  Point.  On  the  east  side  in  Heath's  wing  the  Connecticut  Division 
was  stationed  at  Camp  "Robinson's  Farm"  — later  the  scene  of  Arnold's  treason  — and  there  the 


REGIMENTS,   "CONNECTICUT  LINE,"   1777-1781.  133 

troops  continued  work  on  the  "North"  and  "Middle"  redoubts,  and  engaged  in  daily  drills.     Some 
of  the  orders  issued  at  this  camp  are  of  interest.     Thus  Division  Orders  for  Aug.  20,  '7!t: 

"Brigadier  Genl.  Huntington  directs  that  in  future  the  Drum  is  not  to  beat  on  marching  parties  of  Fatigue  to  or  from 
Work,  but  that  they  march  with  Musick  of  the  Fife  only,  as  the  Drum,  tho'  a  noble  Instrument  of  War  like  Musick,  is 
designed  more  particularly  for  signals  to  Regulate  duty  and  marches  with  arms." 

Wing  Orders,  Mandeville's,  Sept.  3,  '79: 

"Six  men  acquainted  with  blowing  &  spliting  rocks  are  to  be  selected  from'  the  Connecticut  Line  for  that  service  — 
they  are  to  be  daily  employed  in  clearing  the  bomb  proofs  in  the  Middle  &  North  redoubts  until  that  business  is  Compleated 
under  the  Superintendency  of  Capt.  Starr  of  the  C"'  Conn1  Regt.  who  is  appointed  to  that  duty." 

Maj.  Throop  and  Capt.  Eliphalet  Holmes,  of  the  1st  Regt.,  were  detailed  to  superintend  the 
works  in  general. 

"October  21,  1779. 

A  subaltern  &  20  men  from  the  Conn'  Line  to  be  ordered  to  the  fatigue  party  under  the  Direction  of  Col.  Kosciosko 
near  St.  Antonae  Nose "... 

Wing  orders  for  Oct.  22d  read  as  follows: 

"It  is  with  particular  satisfaction  the  Major  General  [Heath J  Beheld  the  Regularity  &  soldierlike  behaviour  of  the 
Troops  of  the  Connecticut  Line  at  Exercise  yesterday  ifc  he  has  the  pleasure  to  acquaint  them  that  the  Baron  Steuben  the 
Inspector  Genl.  publickly  acknowledged  that  they  have  made  as  great  proficiency  in  performing  the  Exercise  and  manouvres 
as  any  Troops  without  exception  in  the  Army. —  A  few  things  only  Remain  to  be  Learnt  &  practiced  to  make  them  finished 
Soldiers,  &  the  Magr  Genl.  Haters  himself  that  by  the  attention  of  the  officers  and  ready  obediancc  of  the  Soldiers  these  will 
soon  be  acquired." 

Steuben,  however,  was  a  rigid  disciplinarian,  and  on  another  occasion,  in  a  formal  report,  he 
very  sharply  criticised  nearly  all  the  troops  in  the  army,  being  as  severe  upon  the  Connecticut 
Division  as  any.  Where  praise  was  merited  he  gave  it,  as  in  the  case  of  Col.  S.  B.  Webb's  Regt. 
which  he  had  lately  inspected  in  Rhode  Island. 

"This  Regt.,"  he  reports,  "is  divided  into  7  comp"  &  is  too  weak  to  form  a  bntallion,  the  only  fault  I  find  with  the 
Regt. —  it  being  for  the  first  Review  the  best  in  order  of  any  Regt.  in  the  Army.  Their  arms  are  a  model.  The  officers  take 
the  greatest  pains  with  their  men.  The  Regt.  marches  perfectly,  and  has  truly  a  military  air.  Majr  Huntington  who  com 
mands  the  Regt.  deserves  particular  attention  for  the  superior  order  in  which  he  has  kept  the  Regt.  The  officers  have  not 
yet  received  their  Commissions  &  I  cannot  but  interest  myself  for  a  Corps  who  have  so  eminently  distinguished  themselves." 

Camp  at  Peekskill,  '70.  —  About  Oct.  21  the  enemy  destroyed  and  abandoned  their  posts  at 
Stony  and  Verplanck's  Points.  The  Connecticut  Line  wa,s  accordingly  ordered  to  move  down  the 
river  to  the  vicinity  of  King's  Ferry  which  thus  passed  into  American  hands  again.  Maj.  Walbridge, 
of  the  Second  Regt.,  "  with  the  village  picket"  was  the  first  to  re-occupy  Verplanck's.  The  change 
of  camp  was  made  under  Wing  orders  of  Oct.  20  : 

"The  Connecticut  Division  is  to  march  early  to  morrow  morning  and  encamp  at  below  Peekskill.  The  Reveille  to  be  con 
sidered  as  the  General  ;  the  Assembly  to  beat  at  half  past  8  o'clock  in  the  1"'  Brigade  &  the  Brigade  to  march  immediately.  —  The 
Assembly  to  beat  at  9  o'clock  in  the  2nd  Brigade  and  the  Troops  to  march  as  soon  as  possible.  The  first;  Brigade  will  halt  at  the  Vil 
lage  until  the  2'"'  comes  up  when  they  arc  to  join  &  march  to  their  new  camp  in  Division. 

150  men  properly  officered  are  to  be  left  under  the  command  of  Major  Throop  [Fourth  Regt.  ]  for  the  purpose  of  Com- 
pleating  the  Redoubts  on  the  Heights.  The  fascine  parties  are  also  to  be  left  .  .  .  Major  Throop  will  endeavor  to  have  the 
works  Compleated  as  soon  as  possible  and  report  when  they  are  finished." 

Details  from  the  Division  under  direction  of  Col.  Gouvion,  engineer,  proceeded  to  repair  the 
works  evacuated  by  the  enemy  ;  the  troops,  also,  in  fitting  up  their  new  quarters  levied  on  the 
straw  of  the  neighborhood,  calling  forth  Orders  for  the  Second  Brigade  as  follows,  October  27  : 

"The  commanding  officer  of  the  Brigade  is  very  much  surprised  after  repeated  orders  have  been  given  against  a  wanton 
destruction  of  private  property  to  have  Complaints  of  that  kind  so  soon  after  coming  on  the  Ground.  He  does  in  the  most  pointed 
and  positive  manner  forbid  anything  of  the  kind  &  is  determined  to  punish  every  transgression  of  the  kind  with  the  utmost  severity. 
Commanding  officers  of  the  Regts.  are  required  immediately  to  make  strict  search  in  their  respective  Regiments  for  the  article  of 
wheat  and  confine  every  man  with  any  found,  and  order  the  wheat  back  where  it  was  taken." 


134  CONNECTICUT  IN   THE   REVOLUTION. 

For  the  29th  of  October,  Wing  Orders  read  : 

"General   Parsons  will  please  to  order  sueli  guards  &  Picquets  as  may  be  necessary  for  the  Security  of  the  Camp 
between  Verplank's  point  &  the  New  Bridge  on  Croton  River. 

The  Major  General  desires  the  exertions  of  the  officers  of  all  ranks  to  expedite  the  repairs  of  the  works  at  the  Points  —  they 
will  soon  be  relieved  on  the  West  side  of  the  river  by  other  troops. 

The  Connecticut  Division  has  made  great  proficiency  in  the  exercise  &  manoeuvres.  —  the  Major  Gen'l  is  anxious  that  they 
not  only  retain  what  they  have  already  acquired  but  that  they  continue  their  endeavours  to  complete  themselves  in  Discipline  ;  the 
exercise  must  therefore  be  daily  attended  by  the  troops  off  duty  &  if  any  Brigade  cannot  form  a  Battalion  the  two  must  join  at 
some  convenient  place  in  the  center.  IA.  Col.  Grosveuor  will  please  to  report  what  guards  are  mounted  and  where." 


Wing  Orders,   November  :>, 


"Should  it  at  any  time  be  necessary  while  the  Troops  remain  in  their  present  encampment  to  make  an  alarm,  it  will  be 
announced  by  the  Discharge  of  three  cannon  which  are  to  lie  fired  by  order  of  the  On'1  at  such  time  Commanding  on  the  Grounds.— 
If  the  order  is  given  to  the  Commanding  officer  of  Artillery  in  Gen'1  Howe's  Division  he  will  turn  the  muzle  of  the  cannon  toward 
the  Conn'  Division.  In  such  Case  the  officer  Commanding  the  Artillery  in  the  first  Conn'  Brigade  will  repete  the  alarm  by  the  Dis 
charge  of  3  Cannon.  —  Should  the  alarm  be  first  fired  in  the  Conn'  Division  it  is  to  be  repeated  by  Gen1  Howe's. 

On  the  alarm  being  made  the  Troops  will  instantly  parade  completely  ready  for  action,  the  waggoners  put  their  horses  to  the 
waggons,  and  the  whole  be  ready  to  execute  such  orders  as  may  be  given  them." 

No  boat  is  to  pass  down  the  River  below  Verplank's  or  Stony  Point  without  a  written  pass  signed  by  some  General  officer 
being  on  board. 

The  firing  of  Guns  at  game  in  the  vicinity  of  Camp  or  in  the  river  is  strictly  forbidden  ; — the  officers  of  all  guards  and 
Picquets  and  the  officers  Commanding  the  guard  boats  will  see  this  order  strictly  observed." 

From  Peek-skill  to  Morrifttown,  X.  J.  —  As  the  season  advanced  the  subject  of  Winter  quarters 
engaged  Washington's  attention.  He  determined,  as  in  the  previous  year,  to  station  the  greater  part 
of  his  force  in  New  Jersey,  witli  brigades  posted  at  West  Point  and  the  Highlands.  The  Connecticut 
Division,  the  whole  or  a  portion  of  which  had  heretofore  wintered  east  of  the  Hudson,  was  this 
season  to  encamp  with  the  main  army.  In  accordance  with  this  arrangement  orders  were  issued 
from  Wing  Head  Quarters,  November  17th  and  18th,  to  break  up  camp  at  Peekskill  and  begin  the 
march  into  New  Jersey.  Orders  of  the  18th  were  as  follows  : 

"The  Connecticut  Division  to  move  over  Hudson's  River  to-morrow  «k  Cam])  as  near  Stony  Point  as  they  can  find  good  wood 
and  water.  While  the  army  remains  at  Haverstraw  they  are  to  furnish  the  Captains  Guard  at  the  Ferry,  and  General  Howe's 
Division  the  other. 

This  move  to  the  west  side  of  the  Hudson  was  delayed  until  the  25th,  when  the  Division 
crossed  and  encamped  near  Haverstraw.  Gen.  Heath  remaining  in  the  Highlands,  the  Division, 
with  Gen.  Parsons  in  command,  came  immediately  under  Washington's  orders.  On  the  27th  the 
Division  encamped  at  night  near  Kakeat,  on  ground  previously  marked  out  by  the  Quartermasters. 
Parsons  took  up  his  quarters  at  Judge  Cox's  house.  On  the  28th  the  march  was  continued  to 
Ramapaugh,  and  on  the  29th  and  30th  to  Persipanny.  On  December  1st  orders  read: 

"The  Division  will  march  to-morrow  morning  to  the  grounds  assigned  for  Winter  quarters." 

Before  marching  from  the  Highlands,  Washington  issued  the  following  order,  dated  "  Head 
Quarters  West  Point,  Nov.  19,  1779,"  respecting  the  new  winter  quarters: 

"Upon  the  arrival  of  the  troops  destined  to  quarter  in  New  Jersey  on  the  ground  upon  which  they  are  to  Hut.. the  space 
allotted  for  each  Brigade  will  be  pointed  out  by  the  Quarter  Master  Genl  who  will  furnish  a  plan  of  the  intended  dimcntions  of  the 
soldiers  Huts,  in  the  construction  of  which  it  is  expected  that  a  minute  attention  will  be  paid  to  the  plan. 

As  conveinency,  health  and  every  good  consequence  will  result  from  a  perfect  uniformity  in  the  Camp,  the  Commander-ra- 
Chief  takes  this  previous  opportunity  of  assuring  that  any  hut  not  exactly  conformable  to  the  Plan  or  the  least  out  of  the  line  shall 
be  pulled  down  and  built  again  agreeable  to  the  Model  of  this  plan.  The  Commanding  officers  of  Brigades  will  pay  strict 
attention  to  this  order." 

Winter-Quarters,  Morrifttoirn. —  The  Connecticut  Division  was  assigned  to  grounds  below  Mor- 
ristown.  A  young  Windham  County  schoolmaster,  Ebenezer  Fitch,  describes  the  site  as  follows  — 
date,  Jan.  4,  '80:

"Week  before  last  I  visited  the  camp,  and  had  the  pleasure  of  seeing  many  old  and  some  dear  friends.  I  found  the 
Log-house  city  on  the  declivity  of  a  high  hill,  three  miles  south  of  Morristown.  There  the  Connecticut  line  dwells  in  taber 
nacles  like  Israel  of  old.  And  there  the  troops  of  the  other  States  lie,  some  at  a  greater  and  some  at  a  less  distance  among 
the  hills  in  similar  habitations." 

Lieut. -Col.  Sumner,  of  the  Fourth  Regiment,  superintended  the  construction  of  the  huts  for  the 
Division.  The  grand  parade  of  the  army  was  to  be  "in  the  field  between  the  Pennsylvania  & 
York  encampments,"  and  the  following,  under  Washington's  orders  of  December  17th,  was  to  be 
regarded  as  the  general  line  of  battle  :

Hut  building,  camp  duties,  and  details,  was  the  daily  routine  through  December.  On  one  day 
a  sergeant  and  twelve  men  are  sent  to  Pluckamin  to  cut  wood  for  the  Hospital  ;  again,  a  corporal's 
guard  to  the  forage  yard  at  Vealtown  ;  another  to  the  White  House  to  look  after  commissary  stores, 
etc.  How  men  were  disciplined  for  minor  offences  in  camp  appears  from  the  following  regimental 
order  issued  by  Capt.  Brigham,  then  commanding  the  Eighth  Regt.,  dated  Dec.  31,  1770  : 

"At  a  Regimental  C'ort  Martial  heldeby  order  of  Capt"  Brigham  Dec.  31  —  Capt"  Comstock  Pres.d"'"  :  — Tried  James  Foster 
<fc  John  Frame  of  Capt"  Hodge's  Co.  for  absenting  themselves  from  Camp  2  days  without  Liberty  : — 

Plead  guilty  of  being  absent  2  Days  but  slept  in  camp  each  night. 

The  Cort  after  considering  their  crime  Do  sentence  them  to  receive  10  Lashes  each  on  their  naked  Backs.  But  as  Frame  is 
now  confin'd  for  his  tirst  offence,  and  the  Cort  having  a  view  to  the  Wound  the  Whip  inflicts  on  the  character  of  a  young  soldier 
do  recommend  it  to  the  officer  Commanding  the  Regt.  to  forgive  him  and  rcminde  him  of  the  Evil  consequences  of  such  Company 
&  Conduct. 

The  Com'1""'  Approves  of  the  Judgment  of  the  Court  and  Directs  that  y'  Part  respecting  James  Foster  be  put  in  Execution 
this  evening  at  Role  Call.  — But  having  the  most  tender  feeling  for  the  correction  of  a  young  soldier  is  induced  to  Pardon  John 
Frame,  But  earnestly  Recommends  it  to  him  in  future  to  Shun  all  bad  company  and  not  be  guilty  of  a  like  offence  againc.'' 

RECORD   FOR   1780. 

The  Morristown  Huts.  Severe  Winter.  —  Hardly  had  the  troops  completed  their  huts  before  a 
winter  of  unusual  severity  set  in  — the  most  trying  experienced  during  the  Revolution.  It  was  long 
known  as  the  famous  winter  of  1780,  when  cold,  hunger,  and  want  of  clothing  caused  the  greatest 
suffering  among  the  troops.  The  distress  is  described  in  letters  from  camp.  Major  Huntington,  of 
Col.  S.  B.  Webb's  Regiment,  in  Stark's  Brigade  011  the  second  Line,  writes  under  date  of  December 
24,  1779  : 

"...  You  will  by  the  date  perceive  that  we  are  in  camp,  tho'  expect,  if  good  weather,  to  have  the  men's  Hutts  so  far 
compleated  that  they  may  go  into  them  on  Sunday  or  Monday.  The  officers'  Hutts  are  not  begun,  nor  will  they  be  meddled  with 
till  after  the  men  have  finished  theirs.  The  severity  of  the  weather  hath  been  such  that  the  men  have  suffcr'd  much  without  shoes 
and  stockings,  and  working  half  leg  deep  in  snow.  ..." 

Capt.  Joseph  Walker,  of  the  same  Regiment,  writing  under  date  February  (i,  1780,  says  : 

"...  I  left  the  Reg'  the  21st  day  of  last  month  and  am  happy  to  say  in  much  better  circumstances  at  that  time  than 
they  had  been  for  weeks  before.  Our  situation  in  regard  to  Provision  was  such  I  never  wish  to  see  again.  Short  commons  ever 
ought  to  be  avoided  &  when  it  cannot  the  consequences  are  to  be  dreaded  in  the  army  —  that  you  know.  However  I  can  with 
pleasure  inform  you  (&  what  I  think  will  give  you  no  small  satisfaction),  that  the  Lads  bore  it  with  the  greatest  patience  and  forti 
tude.  We  considered  the  severity  of  the  season,  the  difficulty  of  transportation,  and  were  willing  to  make  all  allowance  possible. 

"  After  our  long  march  [from  Peekskill]  you  may  well  think  our  men  were  rather  destitute  of  cloathing  ;  after  our  arrival 
we  began  and  completed  our  Ilutts  which  destroyed  our  cloathing  still  more  &  to  my  certain  knowledge  we  had  not  more  than  Fifty 
men  in  the  Reg' return1'  fit  for  duty,  —  many  a  good  Lad  with  nothing  to  cover  him  from  his  hips  to  his  toes  save  his  Blanket.  ..." 


136  CONNECTICUT   IN   THE   REVOLUTION. 

Assistant  Commissary  of  Purchases,  Royal  Flint,  described  the  situation  as  follows  to  Governor 

Trumbull : 

"MoRiiiSTOWN,  .Tan'y  6,  1780. 

"  .  .  .  Tho  distress  of  the  army  for  several  days  past  hardly  admits  of  a  description.  It  is  a  melancholy  fact  that  the 
troops,  both  officers  and  men,  have  almost  perished  for  want  of  provisions.  In  many  instances  the  extremity  has  been  so  severe  as 
to  prompt  them  to  commit  depredations  on  the  property  of  the  inhabitants.  This  sudden  calamity  was  occasioned  by  the  early 
commencement  and  unusual  rigor  of  the  winter,  attended  by  heavy  and  repeated  falls  of  snow.  By  these  obstructions  transportation 
was  so  delayed  that  the  magazines  in  the  vicinity  were  exhausted  before  relief  could  be  drawn  from  the  more  distant  resources.  In 
this  unfortunate  situation  the  Commander-in-Chief  has  been  compelled  to  lay  the  Contiguous  Country  under  a  contribution,  obliging 
the  inhabitants  to  furnish  a  certain  quantity  of  provisions  within  a  special  time.  This  expedient,  however,  is  only  to  produce  a 
temporary  succour,  and  will  cease  its  operation  as  soon  as  the  ordinary  chanclls  of  supply  are  open.  I  think  there  is  a  tolerable 
prospect  of  flour  from  the  Southern  States,  but  our  principal  dependence  for  meat,  as  heretofore,  rests  on  Connecticut.  As  Col.  ' 
Champion  has  expressed  his  fears  of  not  continuing  the  supplies,  I  am  persuaded  your  Legislature  will  consider  a  circumstance  that 
merits  their  attention.  The  most  material  obstruction  in  his  way  is  the  want  of  cash,  and  I  feel  no  probability  of  a  speedy  and 
adequate  remedy  to  this  evil  from  the  Continental  Treasury.  I  must  therefore  request  your  Excellency  to  represent  our  circumstances 
to  your  Legislature,  and  I  am  convinced  they  have  both  ability  and  inclination  to  adopt  regulations  suitable  to  our  exigencies.  Your 
state  has  exhibited  too  many  proofs  of  its  attachment  to  the  army  to  make  me  doubt  of  its  aid  on  the  present  occasion." 

From  Morristoivn  to  the  Out-posts.  Gen.  St.  Clair  Commanding. — Toward  the  beginning  of 
February  Washington  found  it  necessary  to  strengthen  the  "lines"  or  outposts  in  the  vicinity  of 
Elizabeth  and  Newark,  and  the  Connecticut  Brigades  were  detached  for  that  duty.  The  first  order 
they  received,  dated  Headquarters,  near  Morristown,  Feb.  1,  1780,  read  in  brief: 

"The  Connecticut  Division  to  be  held  in  perfect  readiness  to  march  at  the  shortest  notice." 

The  Division  at  this  time  was  temporarily  under  the  command  of  General  Arthur  St.  Clair,  of 
Pennsylvania,  both  Gens.  Parsons  and  Huntington,  with  many  other  officers  of  the  army,  being 
absent  sick  or  on  furlough.  St.  Clair  had  for  some  time  been  in  command  of  the  advanced  parties, 
and  it  was  at  his  suggestion  that  a  full  Division  was  ordered  down  to  reinforce  him.  The  move  to 
the  outposts  was  made  on  February  3d  under  the  following  order  of  the  3d: 

"The  Division  will  march  to-morrow  morning  at  7  o'clock  with  two  days' Provisions  Cook'd. — The  Brigade  Qr.  Masters 
will  provide  Carriage*  to  transport  such  baggage  as  may  be  necessary  &  apply  to  the  Command"  of  Brigades  for  direction.  A 
Subaltern  from  each  Brigade  to  remain  in  Camp  with  those  who  are  unable  to  march,  to  take  charge  of  the  Hutts  and  such  baggage 
as  may  be  left." 

On  the  3d  the  Division  was  at  Springfield  —  orders  as  follows: 

"A  Detachm1  from  the  Connec'  Line  to  parade  to-morrow  morning  at  Sunrise  near  the  Meeting  House  with  four  Days  Provis 
ions.  Maj.  Throop  will  be  the  field  officer  of  the  Command." 

Division  orders,  February  5th  : 

"The  1"  Brigade  will  inarch  to-morrow  morning  at  8  o'clock  to  Wcstfield  —  to  parade  at  the  Meeting  House.  Those  men  of 
the2cl  Brigade  who  have  been  on  Command  with  Col.  Gray  &  now  at  Westfield  will  join  their  Brigade  at  this  Post.  Camp  Guards 
will  be  mounted  this  evening  &  Patrole  the  Streets  &  no  Soldier  to  be  out  of  Quarters  after  9  o'clock.  In  case  of  an  alarm  the 
Troops  will  parade  at  the  Meeting  House." 

Orders,  Second  Brigade,  Colonel  Isaac  Sherman  commanding,  Westfield,  N.  J.,  February  5,  1780: 

"  In  case  of  an  Alarm  the  Troops  will  Parade  at  the  Meeting  House.  It  is  desir'd  that  both  officers  &  men  be  particularly 
attentive  &  that  no  one  is  absent  from  Quarters  after  7  in  the  evening. 

Till  further  orders,  the  Troops  will  lie  upon  their  arms  every  night,  Parade  at  4  in  the  Morning  &  Continue  Paraded  till  Sun- 
Kise  in  front  of  their  Quarters.  The  Commission'd  officers  will  Quarter  Contiguous  to  the  men  &  a  N.  C.  officer  with  each  partic

Division  orders,  Springfield,  February  10th: 

"A  corporal  &  six  men  to  be  sent  to  the  Mountain  [Orange]  to  take  charge  of  a  piece  of  ordnance.  He  will  call  on  Mr. 
Caklwell  at  Springfield  who  will  give  him  directions  respecting  the  fixed  signals  to  proclaim  an  alarm." 

Baron  DeKalb  Commanding.— Division  Orders,  Springfield,  March  2,  1780: 

"  The  Baron  DeKalb  in  Relieving  Gen1  St.  Clair  at  this  Post  finds  himself  happy  in  the  satisfaction  Genl  St.  Clair  express'd 
to  him  of  the  good  order  of  Discipline  &  Vigilance  of  the  Officers  &  men  of  this  Division.  The  Baron  has  no  doubt  of  their  con 
tinuance  therein.  He  is  of  opinion  that  all  the  Dispositions  made  by  Gcnl.  St.  Clair  by  his  order  issued  3d  [4th]  of  Feb.y  ought  to 
be  observ'd  with  no  other  difference  than  that  the  Gcnl  Rendevous  should  be  at  Springfield  instead  of  Westfield  —  the  reason  of  cov 
ering  the  Forage  at  Quibbletown  being  remov'd  with  the  magazine  &  Springfield  being  much  nearer  Morristown  and  in  the  Centre 
of  the  line." 

Division  Orders,  Springfield,  March  8th  : 

"Those  Parties  which  Patrole  to  Amboy,  are  not  to  be  sent  to  that  Place,  while  the  Commissioners  for  the  exchange  of 
Prisoners  are  sitting  there,  as  it  is  to  be  considered  a  neutral  Place  till  the  Business  is  finished.  — 

The  officer  Commanding  the  Guard  from  which  they  are  furnish'd  will  govern  himself  accordingly." 

"D.  O.  March  10,  1780. 

As  there  is  no  flour  to  be  had  at  present  —  the  Roads  being  bad  renders  it  impossible  to  transport  it  —  the  issuing  Commis- 
sarys  of  the  Connecticut  Division  are  till  further  orders  to  issue  1  Rj  $  of  good  Indian  meal  instead  of  Ration  of  flour." 

Brigade  Orders,  Second  Brigade,  Westfield,  March  18,  1780  : 

"As  it  is  probable  that  the  Enemy  intend  a  movement  this  way  soon  the  Command' desires  the  troops  to  assemble  every 
morning  at  4  o'clock  on  their  Regimental  parade  &  continue  under  arms  until  Sim  Rise  : — the  men  arc  always  to  have  their  packs 
neatly  done  up  and  to  parade  with  them.  As  it  is  of  importance  that  the  troops  should  be  as  compact  as  possible  the  Regimental 
Qr.  Mrs.  are  desired  to  inspect  the  Quarters  of  the  men  and  Report  to  the  Command1  what  numbers  Can  be  Conveniently  Quartered 
at  each  house,  having  regard  to  the  families  &  those  houses  nighest  the  Meeting  House." 

DeKalb  to  the  Connecticut  Division. — Springfield,  N.  J..  April  :{,  1780: 

'•  Major  General  the  Baron  de  Kail)  is  relieved  by  Brig.  General  Huntington. 

The  Baron  returns  his  warmest  thanks  and  acknowledgments  to  the  Connecticut  Division  for  their  Constant  zeal  &  vigi 
lance  for  the  security  of  the  Lines,  their  orderly  Behaviour  in  regard  to  the  Inhabitants  &  their  Readiness  &  truly  military  spirit 
manifested  in  everything  Concerning  the  service." 

General  Huntington  in  Command.  Recruiting  the  " Line. "-- During  the  spring  and  summer 
of  1780  the  term  of  the  "three  years"  men,  enlisted  in  1777,  expired,  and  measures  were  taken  to  fill 
their  places.  Some  were  induced  to  re-enlist,  but  it  became  necessary  to  call  for  levies  for  nine 
months  to  fill  the  depleted  ranks.  Lists  of  these  levies  are  appended  to  the  several  regiments  in 
the  rosters.  Division  Orders,  April  2d,  are  as  follows  : 

"As  many  of  the  Companies  arc  small  &  some  of  them  without  officers,  commanding  officers  of  Regts  <fe  Brigades  will  cause 
two  or  three  companies  to  be  joined  together  for  the  present:  —  All  the  Captn"  &  Sub1"  except  one  to  each  company,  so  joined,  are 
desired  to  repair  to  Connec' on  the  Recruiting  service;  to  observe  such  Directions  as  they  shall  receive  from  Governor  Trumbull. 

Commanding  officers  of  Brigades  will  if  possible  quarter  their  troops  in  fewer  houses  nearer  together.     All  the  men  are  to  be 
furnished  with  40  rounds  each,  &  are  to  be  Daily  examined.     Conductors  are  to  keep  the  Complement  good  from  time  to  time. 
Capt"  Alden  of  the  2'1  Regt.  is  app'  Aid  de  Camp  to  Gen1  Huntington,  to  be  obeyed  accordingly." 

Division  After-Orders,  April  7,  1780: 

"  The  Gen1  Assembly  of  the  State  of  Connecticut  anxiously  desirous  of  engaging  for  the  war  those  old  and  faithful  servants 
whose  Terms  of  Service  arc  for  three  years  only,  have  Commissioned  Col"  Chandler  [late  of  the  8th  Regt.]  to  repair  to  Camp  for  that 
purpose.  The  Capt"'  and  subns  of  the  Division  will  be  pleased  (if  not  already  acquainted)  to  inform  themselves  from  Col.  Chandler 
of  the  Bounties  &  encouragements  offer'd  by  the  State  besides  those  given  by  Congress:  they  will  then  invite  every  man,  whose 
engagement  is  of  shorter  duration,  to  reinlist  for  the  war,  using  their  utmost  influence  to  persuade  them  to  comply  with  the  earnest 
wishes  of  their  Country  in  this  respect.  The  Genl  with  pleasure  makes  known  to  the  troops  that  the  army  Committee  at  Wethersfield 
have  informed  Colo.  Chandler  by  Letter  that  they  have  made  good  progress  in  the  settlement  of  the  army  accounts;  that  there  will 
be  a  neat  ballance  of  50  £  good  money  Due  to  each  Soldier,  &  that  the  Committee  have  reason  to  think  the  settlement  will  be 
speedily  Completed  to  the  satisfaction  of  the  Army.  In  addition  to  the  pecuniary  consideration  the  Soldiers  who  reengage  for  the 
war  may  be  indulged  with  a  Furlough  till  the  first  of  June  next.  Every  Soldier  will  reflect  that  his  own  Safety  &  Freedom  is 
involved  in  Defence  of  the  Country  &  event  of  the  war.  The  officers  will  make  report  of  the  success  they  meet  with  at  orderly 
time  next  Monday  to  the  Sub-Inspector  who  will  make  report  of  this  order  &  its  effects  to  Col.  Chandler  by  Monday  night,''

CONNECTICUT   IN  THE   REVOLUTION. 

Orders  Second  Brigade,  Westfield,  April  10,  1780: 

"  The  officers  of  the  Line  are  to  send  for  their  Espontoons  &  in  future  to  make  use  of  them  on  Duty :  if  any  Espontoons  should 
want  repairing  they  must  be  done  without  Delay. 

The  Comnd"'  of  the  Brigade  recalls  the  officers  &  soldiers  to  the  order  of  the  7lh  inst.  Col°  Chandler  will  set  out  for  Con- 
nec't  within  two  Days:  Those  who  inlist  will  have  300  Doll'  advanced,  &  a  Furlough  till  the  first  of  June  next. 

A  settlement  is  now  taking  place  as  fast  as  the  Comnd""'  can  push  the  accounts;  when  compleated  proper  securities  will  be 
given.  Fifty  Dollars  extra  shall  be  given  to  the  first  effective  man  who  will  inlist." 

From  Morristoum  to  the  Highlands.— Kef  ore  leaving  the  outposts  and  winter  quarters  in  New 
Jersey,  a  portion  of  the  Division  repeated  their  protest  against  ill-treatment  made  at  Redding  the 
winter  before,  but  the  disturbance  was  quelled  largely  by  the  prompt  action  of  Col.  Meigs  then  in 
Command  of  the  1"  Brigade.  Washington  wrote  him  a  note  of  acknowledgment,  May  29,  '80,  in 
which  he  said: 


"I  am  very  much  obliged  to  you  for  your  exertions  upon  the  firW.lippearance  of  a  proceeding  of  so  dangerous  a  nature 
&  for  your  conduct  throughout  the  whole  of  it.  Mutiny,  as  you  very  properly  observe,  cannot  in  any  case  be  justified,  but 
still  if  the  Commissaries  by  a  Partiality  of  Issues,  have  in  any  degree  given  ground  of  Complaint  they  shall  be  called  to 
account  for  it.'' 

The  Southern  troops  being  ordered  South  under  Gates  and  DeKalb,  Washington  remained  in 
New  Jersey  until  the  latter  part  of  June,  awaiting  the  enemy's  movements.  Meanwhile  he  arranged 
his  order  of  Battle  as  follows  —  date  "Headquarters,  Short  Hills,  June  7,  1780": 


ADVANCE  CORPS. 


N.  J.  Brigade. 


Maj.  Gen.  Lafayette.  Maj.  Gen.  Greene. 

SECOND    LINE. 


Stark'e  Brigade.  Hand's  Brigade. 


Maj.  Gen.   Steuben. 

The  Connecticut  Division  at  this  time  was  encamped  at  "  Kimbol's  Farms,"  N.  J.,  and  about 
June  20th  marched  to  the  Highlands  and  halted  for  a  few  days  at  Buttermilk  Falls  on  the  west  side 
of  the  Hudson.  On  June  28-29,  it  crossed  to  Nelson's  Point  on  the  East  side  and  took  post  on  the 
old  grounds  near  Robinson's  House  quite  familiar  to  it.  Gen.  Huntington's  quarters  were  near 
"Mr.  Neillson's  House." 

Movements  against  the  Enemy.  —  In  July,  Sir  Henry  Clinton,  who  had  lately  returned  from 
South  Carolina,  organized  an  expedition  against  the  French  contingent  at  Newport,  R.  I.  To  defeat 
his  object  Washington  at  once  prepared  to  make  a  demonstration  in  force  towards  New  York. 
Orders  indicate  that  no  time  was  to  be  lost.  Thus,  "Head  Quarters  Highlands,  28  July  1780": 

"...  The  New  York,  Connecticut  &  Massachusetts  Brigades  are  to  be  got  in  readiness  to  march  with  the  utmost  dis 
patch.  The  exertions  of  the  officers  on  this  occasion  are  earnestly  enjoined.  The  occasion  Calls  for  expedition.  It  is  warmly  & 
in  the  most  pointed  manner  recommended  to  them  to  divest  themselves  of  as  much  baggage  as  possible,  &  lodge  it  at  West  Point, 
or  where  else  they  choose " 

Orders  for  the  1st  Connecticut  Brigade,  July  30th  : 

"The  Comdin»  officers  of  Regts.  are  to  have  everything  in  perfect  readiness  to  march  at  the  shortest  notice,  as  no  order 
will  be  given  till  the  moment  of  marching." 

On  the  same  day,  the  30th,  the  troops  moved  down  the  river  to  Peekskill,  and  remained  there 
until  Aug.  .'3d.  They  were  to  continue  their  march  towards  King's  Bridge,  but  learning  that  Clinton 
had  gone  no  further  than  Huntington  Bay,  L.  I.,  and  had  apparently  relinquished  his  design  against 
the  French,  Washington  re-crossed  the  Hudson  with  his  entire  force  to  carry  out  his  own  plan  of 


REGIMENTS,   "CONNECTICUT   LINE,"  1777-1781.

campaign.  This  plan  contemplated  a  grand  reconnoisance  down  the  west  side  of  the  river  toward 
Bergen  and  Staten  Island,  in  the  course  of  which  it  was  expected  that  an  opportunity  would  offer 
of  striking  at  the  northern  end  of  New  York  Island.  For  this  object  many  boats  were  collected  and 
a  fine  corps  of  Light  Infantry  organized  under  Lafayette  for  rapid  movements.  The  general  "Order 
of  Battle  "  for  these  operations  was  announced  by  Washington  Aug.  1,  1780,  while  the  army  was  at 
Peekskill,  as  follows:

His  EXCELLENCY,  GENERAL  WASHINGTON,  COMMANDER-IN-CHIEP. 

This  was  a  highly  efficient  force  and  by  its  manoeuvres  practically  challenged  the  enemy  to 
meet  it,  but  Clinton  kept  himself  in  New  York.  Lafayette  moved  down  beyond  Bergen  and  gath 
ered  forage  within  sight  of  the  enemy,  while  the  main  force  halted  at  the  "Liberty  Pole",  back  of 
Ft.  Lee.  The  summer,  however,  passed  without  any  stirring  event. 

While  encamped  near  the  "Liberty  Pole,"  Washington  issued  the  following  order,  Aug.  23,  '80: 

"  The  army  being  now  very  near  the  Enemy  the  General  flatters  himself  every  officer  and  soldier  will  make  it  a  point  of 
honour  as  well  as  duty  to  keep  constantly  in  Camp  &  to  be  at  the  shortest  notice  ready  to  act  as  circumstances  may  require.  He  is 
at  the  same  time  persuaded,  should  an  opportunity  be  afforded  us,  that  every  part  of  the  army  will  vie  with  each  other  in  the 
display  of  that  conduct,  fortitude  &  bravery  which  ought  to  distinguish  Troops  fighting  for  their  Country,  for  Liberty,  for  every 
thing  dear  to  the  citizen  or  soldier " 

Colors  of  the  Connecticut  Line.  —  Among  the  camp  orders  issued  to  the  Conn.  Division  during 
these  movements  was  the  following,  dated  Sept.  10,  '80 : 

"Regulations  for  Regimental  colours  in  the  Connecticut  Line. 

"  The  ground  of  each  to  be  different  —  each  to  bear  the  number  of  the  Regt,  in  Large  characters  :  —  the  devise  on  one  side, 
the  Conn' Arms  —  on  the  other,  the  devise  and  motto  of  the  30  Dollar  Bills.  If  the  ground  of  [any]  two  colours  should  be  so 
alike  as  not  to  be  distinguishable  3  or  400  yards,  a  small  field  of  13  stripes  in  the  Lower  Quarter  of  one  of  them  may  serve  as  a 
distinction." 

Arnold's  Treason. —From  Bergen  and  the  Liberty  Pole,  the  army  then  fell  back  to  Steenrapie, 
and  Orangetown,  N.  Y.  It  was  at  the  latter  place,  some  forty  miles  south  of  West  Point,  that  the 
troops  first  heard  of  the  treason  and  flight  of  Arnold  on  Sept.  25th.  Gen.  Greene  was  then  tempo 
rarily  in  command,  and  on  the  26th  he  announced  the  fact  in  the  General  Orders.  Published  and 
manuscript  letters  show  that  no  officers  denounced  Arnold  in  severer  terms  than  those  of  the  "  Con 
necticut  Line." 

Upon  discovery  of  the  treason  two  Pennsylvania  Brigades  and  Meigs'  Gth  Connecticut  Regi 
ment  were  at  once  ordered  to  West  Point  to  meet  any  attack  the  enemy  may  have  intended  through 
Arnold's  cooperation.  The  arrest  of  Maj.  Andre,  the  enemy's  principal  agent  in  the  conspiracy,  was 

•  On  Ang.  3d,  Arnold,  at  his  own  request,  was  relieved  and  given  the  command  of  West  Point.    Maj.-Gen.  Lord  Stirling  succeeded  to  the  command  of  the 

left  wing.

due  largely  to  the  good  judgment  and  promptness  of  Maj.  Benjamin  Tallmadge  of  Sheldon's  Dra 
goons.  The  Board  which  tried  Andre  was  composed  of  the  General  Officers  of  the  Army,  including 
Gens.  Parsons  and  Huntington  of  the  Connecticut  Division. 

Winter  Quarters,  "Connecticut  Village."-  -  Late  in  the  fall  the  army  again  and  for  the  fourth 
time  since  the  organization  of  the  "  Continental  Line,"  went  into  winter  quarters.  The  Connecticut 
Division  built  huts  near  Robinson's  Farm,  and  the  encampment  was  called  "Connecticut  Village.'' 
A  further  description  of  it  appears  under  heading  D — the  next  formation,  '81-83. 

Consolidation  of  the  "Line."  —  At  this  camp  the  Regiments  of  the  ''Connecticut  Line"  were 
consolidated  for  a  new  formation  which  had  been  ordered  by  Congress.  This  also  will  be  more 
particularly  noticed  under  heading  D. 

The  following  are  the  rosters  of  the  Continental  Staff  and  the  Regiments  of  the  "Line" 
for  1777-'81 :

limited  force,  endeavored  to  oppose  the  advance  of  the  enemy  up  the  Hudson.  The  retreat  of 
the  Americans  witli  loss  of  forts  and  ships  led  to  a  Court  of  Inquiry  in  March,  '78.  Gen.  Putnam 
not  held  responsible  in  the  case.  (See  text  preceding.)  In  Jan.  '78,  with  Gov.  Clinton  and  others,

one  brigade  to  report  in  time  caused  miscarriage  of  the  plan.  Gen.  Spencer  invited  a  Court  of 
Inquiry  and  proposed  another  effort.  Exonerated  by  the  Court  Nov.  15,  '77.  Congress,  on  Dec.
