THE FIFTH PENNSYLVANIA, (a.) 



By the re-enlistment, to a large extent, of the Fourth bat- 
talion. Col. Wayne's, under the old officers, the Fifth Penn'a 
was formed. But two returns of this regiment have been 
found. One of August 14, 1777, gives the number of field 
and staff officers thirty-nine, and three hundred and thirty- 
three non-commissioned officers and privates present fit for 
duty; seventeen sick present; fifty-seven sick absent; fifty- 
seven on command; two prisoners of war; forty-seven dead; 
nine discharged; ten claimed; one hundred and eighty-nine 
deserters. Total recruited, seven hundred and thirteen; mus- 
tered, six hundred and fifty-three; brought into the field four 
hundred and seventy-nine. Vacancies: One first lieutenant, 
one second lieutenant, and three ensigns. The other return, 
dated November 3, 1777, makes the field and staff number 
twenty-one; sergeants, sixteen; drummers and fifers, fourteen; 
privates present fit for duty, one hundred and twenty-seven; 
sick present, twenty-three; sick absent, sixty-eight; on com- 
mand, fifty-six; on furlough, two; total, two hundred and sev- 
enty-five. Three deserted, and two prisoners of war. Lieut. 
Col. Frazer reported a prisoner Major Robinson absent wound- 
ed; Capt. Potts a prisoner; Lieut. McCulIough and Ensign 
Pugh absent wounded; Lieut. Martin on command with Col. 
Morgan; Lieuts. Forbes and Stanley sick absent. 

From camp at "Tapan, August 21, 1780," Col. Francis Johns- 
ton writes to "His Excellency Joseph Reed, Esq., President 
of Pennsylvania," as follows: 

"Sir: I beg leave to inform your Excellency that Major 
Church, of the 4 Penn'a Regt., in consequence of Lt. Colonel 
Connor's death, is entitled to be promoted a Lieut. Colonel in 
his stead in the 6th Regiment, from which Lt. Col. Harmar 
was lately taken as Commandant of the 7th. 

"It has not yet been fully ascertained whether Lt. Col. Con- 
nor is really dead, but it is generally believed, and I fear with 
too good grounds. However, 'tis probable your Excell'y by 
this time may know with certainty the truth of this fact. 

"Should it be so, I should be glad Major Church may have 
his promotion as early as your Excell'y can with convenience.

However, I suppose Genl. St. Clair has written your Excell'y 
on this subject. 

"I have the honor to be your Excell'y most obt. servant, 

"F. JOHNSTON."

Lieut. Col. Mentges to Supreme Executive Council: 

Camp, the 14 feb., 1780. 
"Honored Gentlemen: Cap. Job Vernon and Capt. Lieut. 
John Barclay having made application to me for their com- 
missions, I beg leave to transmit to your Honorable Board the 
right they have to promotion, viz: Cap. Michael Ryan, of the 
5th Reg. resigned the 15th June, 1779. Capt. Lt. Job Vernon 
to succeed to promotion of a Capt. Lt. John Barclay to succeed 
Capt. Lt. Vernon to Capt. Lieut, of the same date. Lieut. 
Andew Lytie, of the same regiment, unfortunately lost his 
commission. I would be glad if the Hon. Coun. would grant 
him another, dated the 20 January, 1777. I am in hopes you 
will grant this request, and I am, with the highest esteem, 

"You ob't Ser't, 
"F. MENTGES, 
"Lt. Col. Com'd 5 Regt." 



After the Revolt of the Line, the Fifth and Ninth regiments 
were ordered to Reading, in order to have their depreciation 
settled by the auditors. 

Under the arrangement of January 17, 1781, Col. Johnston re- 
tired. After the promotion of Col. Wayne, he had succeeded 
to the command of the regiment, and was present with it at 
Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth and Stony Point. He 
was appointed, April 9, 1781, Receiver General of the State, 
and elected High Sheriff of the city and county of Philadelphia 
October 25, 1810, where he died on the 22d of February, 1815, 
in his sixty-seventh year. 

Col. Johnston was succeeded by Col. Richard Butler, who 
commanded it during the campaign under Gen. Wayne in the 
South. Butler was lieutenant colonel of the rifle regiment 
commanded by Col. Morgan, which was made up of picked men 
detached from the several regiments of the Pennsylvania, 



FIFTH PENNSYLVANIA. 5 

Maryland, and Virginia Lines, and distinguished himself very 
much at Saratoga. Of his career in the South, the following 
letter to Gen. William Irvine gives some incidents. 

Col. Richard Butler to Gen. William Irvine. 

Quarters, 8th July, 1781. 

Dear General: I hope you'll not charge my silence to Taci- 
turnity or neglect, when I assure you it is neither. I would 
have wrote you had any op'ty hapen'd since I could collect 
subject to write on, & although I Essay it now, I can't boast 
much either to please or amuse you. 

"After a fatigueing march, prosecuted with bad weather, we 
join'd the Marquiss, the 10th of June; about this time L'd 
Cornwallis was really sporting through the country without op- 
position. The very name of a dragoon had such influence on 
the minds of (not only) country people, but the troops of the 
army, that few dar'd to approach them; the consequence of 
which was very bad Intelligence. Charlottsville was sack'd 
without a shot, and every kind of depredation committed with 
Impunity, the people seem'd Scar'd to Death, and nothing but 
dispondency & resignation appear'd in their countinances. In- 
deed, they seem'd quite prepar'd for the yoke; however, our 
junction gave a zest to business, and things began to wear a 
new face. Cornwallis turn'd about on hearing of our arrival, 
& the Exaggerated Acc'ts of our force added to his anxiety 
in return, & he mov'd back with a little more Caution than 
he Advanc'd. The militia was now call'd, Provissions col- 
lected, & on the 14th we mov'd toward Richmond. The peo- 
ple from the back country join'd us in considerable numbers, 
& aj-e really good troops. On the 24th, I was sent out with a 
small Advanc'd light Corps, to try to strike the Brittish rear; 
after three days and nights successive march I got up with 
Simcoe; I gave him a handsome stroke, with little loss myself; 
we kill'd about 50, and some officers, took a few prisoners, a 
good many dragoon horses & furniture, with a number of 
Cattle belonging to the Inhabitants; but being but 8 miles from 
Williamsburg and their whole force, could not think of run- 
ning a greater risque; and want of sleep, threw me into a 
violent fever & Diaroehea, which had like to have taken me 
off, but am now perfectly restor'd, and shall join the Army 
to-morrow. I cannot acc't for the Enemy's movements; they 
have lain since the 26th, at and below Williamsburg, and 
yesterday mov'd to Jamestown, but a few miles from there; 



6 CONTINENTAL LINE. 

our troops mov'd down near town, but return'd 8 miles again 
the same day. The Army is generally healthy, though they 
undergo much fatigue; the Country here is poor and sandy, 
the weather intensely hot, & the water but middling; our 
provis'n is tollerably good, and the troops get some apple- 
brandy, which I think is of service to them; these are the 
things I know your humanity & good wishes for a Soldier 
Interests you in, I therefore take pleasure in informing you 
I find we shall be at a great loss for shoes, overalls & shirts in 
a little time; indeed, many of the men are now barefoot, owing 
to the heat of the sand, which burns the leather, & is insup- 
portable to the bare foot; the swet, and want of soap & oppor- 
tunity to wash, destroys the linen so that the men will be 
naked if they don't get a supply soon. I think it proper to 
give you Information, in order that you may make timely 
application, & if possible, forward them by some officer; if 
you succeed, my paymaster, Lt. Lytle, may ans'r the Pur- 
pose. 

"My Battall'n is now very small, the Companies not being 
quite full at first, & considerable desertion and sickness since. 
I have, therefore wrote Col. Mentges to send on what he can 
Collect, with some fifers, & A number of spare fifes for the 
line — I think about 30 will do. I must request of you, my dear 
Gen'l, to have them push'd on as fast as possible, as I think 
that assistance will be wanting, in case the Earl plays the 
cunning game & lays by till our militia is dispers'd by the calls 
of their harvest, (which is now in), other Necessitys, and a 
push, when weak, may oblige us to move backwards, which I 
would not like. 

"I conclude, with assuring you that I am, with every senti- 
ment of Friendship and respect, Dear Sir, your most Obed't & 
very Hub. St., 

"RICH'D BUTLER, 
"Col. 5 P. Regt." 

Col. Butler was second in command to Gen. St. Clair, and fell 
in the battle of November 4, 1791, which terminated in the de- 
feat of St. Clair's army. He had four brothers, noted officers 
in the Pennsylvania Line, Col. William, Major Thomas, Lieut. 
Percival, and Capt. Edward; the two latter were with him at 
St. Clair's defeat. 

Of Lieutenant Colonel Persifor Frazer, we have this data: He 
was the son of John Frazer, of Scotland, who came to America 
in 1735, born near Newtown Square, Chester county, August 10, 



FIFTH PENNSYLVANIA. 7 

1736. He became a merchant, and was a partner of the iron 
works at Oxford, and afterward in the Sarura forge. He was a 
member of the Provincial convention which, in January, 1765, 
protested against tlie further importation of negro slaves; a 
signer to the non-importation resolutions of the 25th of October 
that year, and a delegate to the Provincial conference of Jan- 
uary 18, 1775. He raised and commanded the first company of 
the Fourth battalion. Col. Wayne, commissioned January 5, 
1776, and was appointed major by Gen. Gates at Ticonderoga, 
September 24, 1776. Upon the organization of the Fifth regi- 
ment of the Continental Line, he was commissioned lieutenant 
colonel, to rank from October 4, 1776. He was taken prisoner 
September 12, 1777, and held in Philadelphia until his escape in 
March, 1778. He rejoined his regument, and was present at the 
battle of Monmouth; but offended on account of some promo- 
tions over him during his captivity, he resigned October 9, 1778. 
He subsequently held different military positions, but never 
went into service in the field. At the time of his death, April 
24, 1792, he was register of wills and recorder of deeds for 
Chester county. Col. Frazer married, October 27, 1766, Mary 
Worrall Taylor, who survived him many years. Gen. Persifor 
F. Smith, U. S. A., Prof. John Frazer, of the University of 
Pennsylvania, and P. Frazer Smith, reported of the Supreme 
Court of Pennsylvania, were grandsons of Col. Frazer.

SIXTH PENNSYLVANIA REGIMENT, (a.) 



Materials for a historical sketch of this regiment are scant, 
no general returns of the numbers of rank and file, or corres- 
pondence throwing light upon it, having been found. It was 
organized on the basis of Col. Magaw's Fifth battalion, but 
that was captured, with all its records, in the disaster of Fort 
Washington, November 16, 1776. Col. Magaw remained a pris- 
oner, Lieut. Col. Henry Bicker commanding until he was suc- 
ceeded by Lieut. Col. Josiah Harmar, Who commanded the reg- 
iment during the most of its military career. 

The Sixth regiment, with the Third, Ninth, and Twelfth, was 
attached to a division composed chiefly of Jersey troops. Of 
the brigade, see letter of Capt. Thomas B. Bowen, of the 
Ninth; and Capt. James Chrystie, of the Third, in a memorial 
to the Executive Council, dated Lancaster, February 3, 1778, 
Pennsylvania Archives, second series, third volume, 170 — 171. 

The following is a memorandum "of sundry officers made su- 
pernumerary by an arrangement which took place in the year 
1778;" also, to what time each officer was paid for actual ser- 
vice: 

John McGowan, captain, June 21, 1778, $480. 
Walter Cruise, captain, June 21, 1778, $480. 
Jacob Moser, captain, September 1, 1778, $480. 
Luke Brodhead, captain, June 21, 1778, $480. 
James Waugh, captain, June 21, 1778, $480. 
John Savidge, captain, September 7, 1778, $480. 
Archibald Campbell, lieutenant, September 1, 1778, $320. 
Greenbury Hughes, lieutenant, June 21, 1778, $320. 
John Foster, ensign, June 21, 1778, $240. 
Philip Snider, ensign, June 21, 1778, $240. 
William Baxter, ensign, June 21, 1778, $240. 
Enoch Morgan, paymaster, June 21, 1778, $480. 

"Germantown, October 4, 1785. 
"I certify that the above is a true extract from the pay rolls 
of the Sixth Pennsylvania Regiment, which are yet in my pos- 
session. 

"THOMAS DUNGAN, 
"Formerly Paymaster to the above named Regiment." 



102 CONTINENTAL LINE. 

Col. Henry Bicker, in 1755, was lieutenant of a Jersey regi- 
ment; was promoted captain iu 1756; captured, and remained 
a prisoner in Canada fourteen months; after his return he 
acted as quartermaster of Gen. Gage's regiment until the close 
of the French-Indian war; his history subsequent to his retire- 
ment, in 1778, cannot be traced. 

Capt. Luke Brodhead belonged originally to Miles' regiment, 
and was captured on Long Island; after his return from cap- 
tivity, he joined the Sixth, and participated in the actions at 
Short Hill, Brandy wine, and Germantown; his health, im- 
paired by captivity and wounds received at Long Island, com- 
pelled him to quit the service June 21, 1778; he died at Strouds- 
burg, June 19, 180«. 

Of Lieut. James Gibbon, all accounts of the storming of Stony 
Point give him distinguished notice; he was promoted captain 
by brevet for his gallant conduct; he led the left forlorn hope, 
composed of twenty men, losing seventeen killed and wounded; 
he is mentioned in Gen. Wayne's letter, and was voted the 
thanks of Congress; he died at Richmond, Virginia, at which 
city he was collector, in June, 1835, aged seventy-seven. His 
son, James, an officer in the United States navy, perished in 
the burning of the Richmond theatre, in December, 1811. 

Capt. Jacob Humphreys was born in Bucks county, 1751. En- 
gaged in the battles of Trenton, Princeton, Brandywine, Ger- 
mantown, and Yorktown; served in the Southern campaign; 
mustered out at Philadelphia, in First Penn'a, in 1783; he re- 
sided in West Fallowfield, Chester county; elected to the Legis- 
lature in 1814-15; and in July, 1825, was one of the county com- 
mittee to receive Gen. Lafayette; he died January 21, 1826, 
aged seventy-five.— Letter of Hon. J. Smith Futhey. 



"Camp West Point, August 25, 1779. 
"Sir: By the resolve of Congress, 28 June last, I observe 
that whenever vacancies happen in a regiment, the commanding 
officer is to notify the President of the State that proper per- 
sons may be appointed, I must, therefore, beg leave to inform 
your Excellency of two Vacancies in the Sixth Pennsylvania 
Regiment, and at the same time to recommend Mr. Dixon and 
Mr. Humphries to be appointed as ensigns. The former is my 
sergeant-major, a person of good morals, and as brave as Cae- 
sar. The latter has been a volunteer in Major Lee's corps. 
The major has strongly recommended him to me as a person 
of unblemished character.

SEVENTH PENNSYLVANIA REGIMENT, (a.) 



The Seventh Penn'a regiment was organized by the re- 
enlistment of Col. William Irvine's Sixth battalion. Col. 
Irvine remained a prisoner on parole until April, 1778, when 
he was exchanged, and the following year promoted brigadier 
general, and assigned to the Second brigade, which he con- 
tinued to command until the fall of 1781, when he was 
detached to Pittsburgh, and charged with the defense of the 
northwestern frontier. Lieut. Col. Hartley was appointed by 
Gen. Washington, in January, 1777, to command one of the 
additional regiments, and, by the arrangement of March 12, 
1777, Major David Grier became lieutenant colonel, and had 
charge of the regiment .until Col. Irvine's exchange. On Col. 
Irvine's promotion, Lieut. Col. Morgan Conner, of Hartley's 
additional regiment, was assigned to the command, with the 
rank of lieutenant colonel commandant (see note to Hartley's 
regiment). 

It appears, by Lieut. Col. Grier's letter postea, that the Sixth 
battalion, now Seventh regiment, only returned to Carlisle 
from Ticonderoga in March, 1777, and, on the 9th of March, he 
returns to the Council of Safety the following, as a true list of 
the ofTlcers as they now are in said regiment, with the remarks 
appended, which his letter explains:

SEVENTH PENNSYLVANIA. 201 

On March 15, 1777, Lieut. Col. David Grier writes to the 
Board of War: 

"I would just inform the Honb. Board that I have made en- 
quiry of some of the officers formerly in the 2nd Penn. Regm't, 
men of probity and honour, that notwithstanding the recom- 
mendation in Mr. Allison's favor (which I doubt not the 
Hon'ble Board have had), he was not agreeable to the officers 
of the same corps; that they believe him a good man but not a 
good officer; has no military ambition or knowledge, and I 
understand from himself that the reasons for his resignation 
were because younger officers were advanced over him, which 
is always a hint to leave the service. I would also mention 
that those men mentioned by me, not fit to rise, in the 7th 
Regt., were good men, good members of Society, inoffensive 
to the other officers, and yet not thought good officers in com- 
parison to the rest of the regiment, tho', in my opinion, much 
preferable to this gentleman; and as our officers and men are 
just come to Carlisle from Ticonderoga, they would think it 
hard to have a man of that character put into their regiment. 
I would just inform the Board that I have had messages from 
three genteel young men, of good families, requesting appoint- 
ment in this regiment, and expect to have it in my power, 
before next Monday, to be able to fill up all the vacancies, 
provided the Hon'ble Board will give that indulgence. 

"P. S. I have had no opportunity to consult the officers of 
the regiment since the first intimation from the Hon'ble Board, 
of leaving out those officers, prisoners." 

On the 17th, he encloses to the board of war a list (which 
cannot be found) of names for appointment in the regiment 
which he says "he is confident will give general satisfaction, 
and be a great inducement to the men who have been dis- 
charged to re-enlist; all the new officers mentioned, unless 
those opposite the crotchet, were with us in Canada; are young 
men of good family and most of them men of property; have 
behaved well in every instance while in service, and have great 
influence in the neighborhoods where they reside, &c. I lodge 
at the Indian Queen, and should be glad to know the result 
of the Hon'ble Board." 

The subsequent roster indicates that his recommendations 
were probably adopted, the promotions to captains being en- 
tirely from the old battalion, dropping the captive officers. 

A return, dated "Camp at Middlebrook, June 17, 1777,^' signed 
by Lt. Col. Griei', gives the state of the regiment as follows: 
one lieutenant colonel, one major, eight captains, fifteen lieu- 
tenants, eight ensigns, one surgeon, no mate, adjutant, quarter-

master, and paymaster; four hundred and twenty-five men 
enlisted during the war, or three years; two hundred and 
twenty of which are present, fit for duty in camp; forty-one 
sick, in camp; forty-two sick, absent; six on furlough; two dis- 
charged; sixty deserted; fourteen dead; one absent without 
leave; nineteen recruiting; twenty in dispute with Col. Hart- 
ley; a captain, seven lieutenants, and five ensigns are recruit- 
ing in the back counties. 



The following, dated "Camp at Trappe, Sept. 29, 1777," from 
Major Hay to Col. William Irvine, relating to the Paoli night 
attack, is furnished by Dr. W. A. Irvine, of Warren county, 
grand-son of Col. Irvine: 

"Dear Colonel: Since I had the pleasure of seeing you, me 
Division under the command of General Wayne has been sur- 
prised by the enemy, with considerable loss. We were ordered 
by his Excellency to march from Yellow Springs, down lo 
where the Enemy lay, near the Admiral Warren, thereto annoy 
their rear. We marched early on the 17th instant, and got 
below the Paoli that night. On the next day fixed on a place 
for our camp. We lay the 18th and 19th undisturbed, but, on 
the 20th, at 12 o'clock at night, the Enemy marched out, ana 
so unguarded was our Camp that they were amongst us before 
we either formed in any manner for our saiety, or attempted 
to retreat, notwithstanding the General had full intelligence 
of their designs two hours before they came out. I will inform 
you in a few words of what happened. The annals of the age 
cannot produce such a scene of butchery. All was confusion. 
The enemy amongst us, and your regiment the most exposed, 
as the Enemy came on the right wing. " The 1st Regiment 
(which always takes the right) was taken off, and posted in a 
strip of woods, stood only one Are, and retreated. Then we 
were next the Enemy, and, as we were amongst our fires, they 
had great advantage of us. I need not go on to give the par- 
ticulars, but the Enemy rushed on, with fixed bayonets, and 
made the use of them they Intended. So you may figure to 
yourself what followed. The party lost 300 Privates in killed, 
wounded and missing, besides commissioned and non-commis- 
sioned officers. Our loss is Col. Grier. Captain Wilson, and 
Lieutenant Irvine* wounded (but none of them dangerously), 

•Capt. Andrew Irvine received seventeen bayonet wounds In all, one of 
which penetrated through his company books, which, In the confusion, he 
had taken up, and thrust into the breast-pocket of his coat to carry off. He 
never entirely recovered, but died soon after the close of the war from 
the effects of these wounds. 



SEVENTH PENNSYLVANIA. 203 

and 61 non-comm'd ami privates killed and wounded, which 
was just half the men we had on the ground nt ror duty. The 
22d, I went to the ground to see the wounded. The scene was 
shocking — the poor men groaning under their wounds, which 
were all by stabs of Bayonets, and cuts of Light-horsemen's 
swords. Col. Grier is wounded in the side by a bayonet, su- 
perficially slanting to the breast bone. Captain Wilson stabbed 
in the side, but not dangerous, as it did not take the guts or 
belly. He got also a bad stroke on the head with the cock 
nail of the locks of a musket. Andrew Irvine was ran through 
the fleshy part of the thigh with a bayonet. They are all 
laying near David Jones' tavern. I left Capt'n McDowell with 
them to dress and take care of them, and they are all in a fair 
way of recovery. Major La Mar, of the 4th Regiment, was 
killed, and some other inferior officers. The Enemy lost Cap- 
tain Wolf, killed, and four or five Light-horsemen, and about 
20 privates, besides a number wounded. The General officers 
have been in Council for three days, and the plan is fixed, but 
what it is we do not yet know. Inclosed you have the state of 
the British Army, with their loss at Brandywine. You have 
it as I have it, and may judge of it as you think proper. 

"You will see by this imperfect scrawl how many sorts of 
Ink I have written with — all borrowed — and the Ink-stand's 
dry, as I nave no Bagage, nor have had any this four weeks, 
more than one shirt and one pair of stockings, besides what is 
on my back. The other officers are in the same way, and most 
of the officers belonging to the Division have lost their Bagage 
at Col. Frazer's, taken by the Enemy. I have nothing new to 
Inform you of. My compliments to Mrs. Irvine and Mrs. Arm- 
strong. Let her know the Gen'l (Armstrong) is very well, 
and lodges near our camp. 

"I am, with great respect, yours affectionately, 

"SAMUEL HAY."

gress. The resolve of Congress is as follows, viz: That Con-

a Principle of Merit only). And that the arrangement made 
by the said Board, with Respect to the Relative rank of the 
Principle field Officers, be and is hereby Confirmed. That the 
Commissions heretofore Granted, are hereby Vacated; that 
said Commissions be delivered to Gen'l Washington, & new

"Now, you will see by the above Arrangement, that Notwith- 
standing my Com'n as Maj'r & Lt. Col. were Older than either 
of the five now before me, viz: Ross, R. Butler, Craig, Wm. 
Butler, & Frazer, & altho' contrary to the mode, by the said 
Board adopted, yet my new Com'n is to be of a Younger date. 
I was a Major long before either of those ment'd, which was 
the standing we held immediately before our Present Com'ns; 
I, therefore, am determined, as I have not got the Benefit of 
their own mode, to quit the seivice as soon as I can settle my 
acc't. I have spoke to the Members of Congress several times 
about the Prisoners of War, & they told me that very littl« 
could now be done, as a Committee of Congress were gone to 
head Qu'rs, but as soon as they Returned something would be 
done. As I am now stating my Acc'ts in Order to settle 
them, I see at the Bottom of your Gen'l acc't two hundred & 
thirty Dollars added, without say'g to whom del'd; & you 
ment'n, at the foot, 200 Dollars, by you draw'd last Feb. 7, of 
w'h you say Maj'r Hay Has an acc't; he never gave me any 
such acc't; yourself give me rec'ts of one thousand Dollars, 
draw'd at Philad'a, & delivered the different officers; but the 
other two thousand I never heard of until I Rec'd your last 
acc't; if you can find any acc't of that two thousand, would 
be obliged to you to send it me, as also that 230, & who Rec'd it. 
My wound is quit skin'd over, but I find, on Riding, that the 
Parts about the wound swells, inflames, & Gets very Painful; 
I fear it has been let close too soon. I find, by your last acc't, 
that a Number of the officers have rec'd more cash then they 
can acc't for; there must be a loss some where, who will suffer 
it I do not know. Give by Com'ts to Mrs. Irwlne, & believe 
me, dear Col., your very Hbl. servt, 

"D. GRIER." 

After the Revolt of the Penn'a Line, in 1781, the remains of 
the Seventh Penn'a were drafted into the Fourth, subsequently 
the Fourth into the Third, and finally, in 1783. into the First.

To 23 Men at 16 Dollars per Man, 368. 

By Coll. Gilbraith 2.480 Dollars. Balance due 408 Del. 

I have examined the vouchers ofered in support of the 
within acc't — and find it sufficiently certified that the 23 men 
mentioned have all been enlisted & qualified, but that 4 of 
them have deserted without being mustered having rec'd 
60 dollars each. 

It further apears by the certificate of Col. Gilbraith that 
Capt. Bratton hath rec'd of him 2480 Dollars which leaves a 
balance of 408 dollars due the Capt. provided he drew no 
money from any other quarter.

EIGHTH PENNSYLVANIA. 305 



EIGHTH PENNSYLVANIA REGIMENT, (a.) 



Under authority of a resolution of Congress, dated July 15, 
1776, (Journal, vol. 1, 411-419) for the defense of the western 
frontier, to garrison the posts of Presqu' Isle, Le Boeuff 
and Kittanning, to consist of seven companies from West- 
moreland, and one from Bedford, the Eighth Pennsylvania 
was raised. On July 20, 1776, the convention of Pennsylvania 
then sitting, having recommended for field officers Col. Aenas 
Mackey (written McCoy), Lt. Col. George Wilson, Major Rich- 
ard Butler, they were elected by Congress. Congress having 
resolved that the committees of the counties in which the 
companies were to be raised should name the company officers, 
and they having named them. Congress September 14, 1776 
(Journal, vol. 1, 475), accepted them ^nd ordered commissions. 
[See names in Roster, postea]. On the 23d of September (Jour- 
nal, vol. 1, 472), Congress elected David McClure, chaplain, 
and Ephraim Douglass, quartermaster. November 23, 1776 
(Journal, vol. 1, 558), Congress directed the Board of War 
to order the regiment to march, with all possible expedition, 
by the nearest route, to Brunswick, New Jersey, or to join 
Gen. Washington wherever he may be.* In the day-book, as 
quoted by Judge Veech, under date of December 5, 1776, is 
this entry: "This day received intelligence for the Battalion 
to march to Amboy." 



Lt. Col. George Wilson to Col. James Wilson.

*For these extracts and other valuable information the editors are In- 
debted to the late Judge Veech, of Emsworth, Pa., who had in his pos- 
session the original day-book of Ephraim Douglass, quarter-master of 
Eighth Penn'a. Up to November 26, 1776, the receipts are dated Apiileby, 
the name of the Manor, where Kittanning now is.

Defence of ye Westeran Frontiers, and their fameleys and 
substance to be Left in so Defenceless a situation in their 
abstence, seems to Give Sensable trouble, altho I Hope We 
Will Get over it. By Leaving sum of ower trifeling Officers 
Behind who Pirtend to Have More Witt then seven men that 
can Rendar a Reason. We are ill Provided for a March at 
this Season, But there is nothing Hard under sum Sircum- 
stances. We Hope provision Will be made for us Below, 
Blankets, Campe Kittles, tents, arms, Regementals, &c., that 
we may not Cut a Dispisable Figure, But may be Enabled to 
answer ye expectation of ower Countre. 

"I Have Warmley Recommended to ye officers to Lay aside 
all Personall Resentments at this time, for that it Would be 
construed By ye Worald that they made use of that Sircum- 
stance to Hide themselves under from ye cause of their coun- 
trie, and I hope it Will have a Good Efect at this time. We 
have ishued ye Neceserey orders, and appointed ye owt Parties 
to Randevous at Hauows Town, ye 15th instant, and to March 
Lmeditly from there. We have Recommended it to ye Militia 
to Station One Hundred Men at this post until further orders. 

"I Hope to have ye Pleasure of Seeing you Soon, as we mean 
to take Philodelphia in ower Rout. In ye mean time, I am, 
With Esteem, your Harty Wellwisher and H'ble Ser't.

"To Col. James Wilson, of the Honorble the Cont. Congress, 

"Phila." 



Up until the 5th of December, the regiment is styled in the 
receipts "the Battalion commanded by Col. Eneas Mackay." 
In those of December 5, 1776, it is first styled "The Eighth Bat- 
talion of Penn'a troops in the Continental service." The regi- 
ment marched from Kittanning on the 6th of January, 1777, 
and the next notice we have of it is found in the "Life of Tim- 
othy Pickering," (volum.e i, page 122), in the following refer- 
ence to the Eighth Penn'a: 

"March 1, 1777, Saturday. 

"Dr. Putnam brought me a billet, of which the following is 
a copy: 

" 'Dear Sir: Our Battalion is so unfortunate as not to have 
a Doctor and in my opinion, dying for want of medicine. I beg 
you will come down to-morrow morning, and visit the sick of

tion from your humble servant. _^^^^^^ ^^^^^^ 



" 'Quibbletown, Feb. 28, 1777.' 

"1 desired the Dr. by all means to visit them. They were 
raised about the Ohio, and had traveled near five hundred 
miles, as one of the soldiers who came for the Dr. informed me 
For 150 miles over mountains, never entering a house, but 
building fires and encamping in the Snow. Considerable num- 
be s unused to such hardships, have since died. The Colonel 
and Lieutenant Colonel among the dead. The Dr. informed 
he found them quartered in cold shattered houses, &c. 



Colonels Mackey and Wilson having died, under the arrange- 
ment of March 12. 1777, Daniel Brodhead became colonel, 
Richard Butler lieutenant colonel, and Stephen Bayard major. 
When Morgan's rifle command was organized, Lieut. Col^ Butler 
was made lieutenant colonel of it, and Major James Ross, of 
the First Penn'a, became lieutenant colonel. According to^ a 
return, signed by the latter, dated "Mt. Pleasant, June 9. 1777 
the number of men enlisted between the 9th of August and the 
16th of December, 1776. was six hundred and thirty; enlisted 
since the 16th of December, thirty-four; making a total of six 
hundred and eighty-four. The strength of the respective com- 
panies was- ^^^^

Capt. Van Swearingen, First Lieut. Basil Prather, and Sec- 
ond Lieut. John Hardin, with their commands, were also with 
Morgan, and greatly distinguished themselves in the series of 
actions that resulted in the surrender of Gen. Burgoyne at 
Saratoga. These commands consisted of picked riflemen out of 
all of the companies of the Eighth Penn'a. 

A return, dated November 1, 1777, shows the strength of the 
regiment present; Colonel, major, two captains, six lieutenants, 
adjutant, paymaster and surgeon, sergeant major, quarter- 
master sergeant and drum major, twenty-nine sergeants, nine 
drums and fifes, one hundred and twelve rank and file, fit for

eight ensigns, chaplain, and surgeon's mate. Lieut. Col. Ross 
resigned after the battles of Brandywine and Germantown. 

On the 5th of March, 1778, the regiment was ordered to Pitts- 
burgh for the defense of the western frontiers, and by direc- 
tions of Gen. Mcintosh, Col. Brodhead made, about the 12th of 
July, a detour up the West Branch to check the savages who 
were ravaging Wyoming and the West Branch valley. He was 
at Muncy, on the 24th of July, and had ordered Capt. Finley's 
company into Penn's valley, where two of the latter's soldiers, 
Thomas Van Doren and Jacob Shedacre, who had participated 
in the campaign against Burgoyne, were killed, on the 24th, in 
sight of Potter's Fort, by the Indians. (Penn'a Archives, O. 
S., vol. yi, page 666.) Soon after. Col. Hartley with his regi- 
ment relieved Col. Brodhead, and he proceeded with the Eighth 
to Pittsburgh. 

"August 28, at Bedford, William Graham, brigade major. 

"November 2, Capt. Joseph Finley to act as brigade major in 
Graham's absence. 

"At Tuscarawas (Fort Laurens, Ohio), November 21, court-

Thomas Cook. Tried — not guilty. 



EIGHTH PENNSYLVANIA. 309 

"November 25, Capt. Basil Prather, for good conduct yester- 
day, allowed to hunt with any three men he chooses. 

"December 31, at Fort Mcintosh: As the Eighth regiment is 
deficient in subalterns, the Gen. appoints sergeants John Guth- 
rie, John Clark, Thomas Wiatt, and James Morrison, to be en- 
signs. 

There were a great many court martials of Eighth Penn'a, 
Ninth and Thirteenth Virginia in 1779-80. Of the Eighth, 
Isaac Alkin, theft, guilty, fifty lashes; James Maxwell, refusal 
to do duty, to ride a wooden horse ten minutes, with a musket 
to each foot; Edward Wilkie, many offenses, one hundred 
lashes, and tO' be drummed out of the regiment as a vagabond, 
not to appear on pain of death; Thomas Kelly, five hundred 
lashes, surgeon to attend the execution. 

A monthly return of the troops, commanded by Col. Brod- 
head, in the Western Department, dated July 30, 1780, gives 
the strength of the Eighth Penn'a: Colonel, lieutenant colonel, 
major, two captains, three lieutenants, four ensigns, adjutant,

In a letter from Gen. William Irvine to Gen. Washington, 
soon after he took command at Fort Pitt, dated December 2, 
1781, he says: "I have re-formed the remains of the late Eighth 
Pennsylvania into two companies, and call them a detachment 
from the Penn'a Line, to be commanded by Lt. Col. Bayard." 
[The first company, Capt. Clark, Lieuts. Peterson and Reed; 
second company, Capt. Brady, Lieuts. Ward and Morrison. — 
Note of Judge Veech.] 

Capt. Matthew Jack, in a statement on file, says: "They were 
stationed at Bound Brook, New Jersey, in the winter and spring 
of 1777, where the British attacked it, and defeated it with 
the loss of a number of men. In the year 1778, it was sent to 
Pittsburgh, to guard the frontier, and placed under the com- 
mand of Gen. Mcintosh. That they went down to the mouth 
of the Beaver, and there built Fort Mcintosh, and from that 
went, upon Mcintosh's command, to the head of the Musk- 
ingum, and there built Fort Laurens. In the year 1779, went 
up the Allegheny, on Gen. Brodhead's expedition, attacked the 
Indians and defeated them and burned their towns. On the re- 
turn of the regiment, its time having expired, it was discharged 
at Pittsburgh." For a full account of the services of the regi-

ment in the West, the reader is referred to Brodhead's Letter- 
book, published in the Twelfth volume, first series, of Penn'a 
Archives. 

Col. Daniel Brodhead was born about 1725, his birthplace 
being, probably, Albany, New York; but as his father made 
several removals in the early years of his married life, this is 
not certain. In 1738, his father migrated to Pennsylvania, set- 
tling at a place which he called, after his own name, Dansbury, 
now East Stroudsburg, Monroe county. The younger Daniel 
grew up among the rude experiences of a frontier settlement, 
and, probably had his first experience of actual war when the 
Indians, after ravaging all the country between the Lehigh 
and Delaware rivers, north of the Blue Monutains, attacked the 
Brodhead house at Dansbury, which had been hastily fortified, 
on the 11th of December, 1755. Ihe attack was a fierce one 
but it was totally unsuccessful, and the repulse of the Indians 
met ended for a time the war in that section. In 1771, he re- 
moved to Reading, and soon after was appointed Deputy Sur- 
veyor under John Lukens, who was then Surveyor General. 
In July, 1775, he was appointed a delegate from Berks county 
to the Provincial Convention at Philadelphia. In the beginning 
of 1776, he was appointed lieutenant colonel of the rifle regi- 
ment, which was raised in six weeks, and given its first ren- 
dezvous at Marcus Hook, on the Delaware, where it was 
ordered to support the Provincial fleet in the attack on the 
Roebuck and the Leopard, which vessels were menacing Phila- 
delphia. After this attack, which served its purpose of pre- 
venting the enemy's advance, the regiment was sent to join 
the army near New York. Upon the capture of Col. Miles at 
the battle of Long Island, the command of the remainder of 
the battalion devolved on Col. Brodhead, who was, in fact, 
after the battle, in command of the whole Pennsylvania con- 
tingent, being the senior officer, remaining with the army. 
Shortly after, he seems to have gone home on sick leave, and, 
when he rejoined the army, it was as colonel of the Eighth 
regiment. The history of Col. Brodhead during his connec- 
tion with the regiment has been given. He made some im- 
portant treaties with the Indians, but the honor of pushing 
west into the Indian country was, greatly to his chagrin, 
devolved upon Col. Clark, a Virginia officer. The war was now 
virtually ended, and Brodhead was not again assigned to com- 
mand. In the reorganization of the army, early in 1781, he 
was made colonel of the First regiment, his commission dat- 
ing September 29, 1776, and he seems, at a later date, to have

beeu appoiutod a brigadiei' general. He served afterwards iu 
the General Assembly, and, in 1789, was appointed Surveyor 
General of the State. He held this office eleven years, and 
died at Milford, Pike county, November 15, 1809. He was twice 
married. His first wife was Elizabeth Depui, by whom he 
had two children, Daniel and Ann Garton; and his second 
was Rebecca, widow of Gen. Thomas Mifflin, by whom he 
had no children. 

Lt. Col. George Wilson was a Virginian, from Augusta 
county; had been an officer in the French and Indian war, of 
1755-64; settled where New Geneva, Fayette county, now is, 
in 1768-9, owning the land on the river, on both sides of 
George's creek; Pennsylvania had no more resolute officer than 
he was, in all our boundary troubles. He died iu service, at 
Quibbletown, New Jersey, February, 1777. — Hon. James Veech. 

Lt. Col. Stephen Bayard, was born in Maryland in 1748, be- 
longed to a Huguenot family from Languedoc. He was brought 
up by his uncle. Col. John Bayard, of Philadelphia. He settled 
after the war in Pittsburgh, going into partnership with Major 
Isaac Craig. He retired from business in 1788, and settled on 
his lands on the Monongahela, fourteeu miles above Pittsburgh, 
and laid out a town which he called Elizabeth, for his wife, who 
was a daughter of Col. Aeneas Mackey, who had been an officer 
of the British army, and in 1754, in command of an independent 
company of King's soldiers from South Carolina, accompanied 
Washington on his first expedition, and who afterwards became 
one of the King's justices for Westmoreland county. [Col. M's 
widow Mary, was a Pennsylvania pensioner, and resided in 
Westmoreland county in 1784. — Editors.] Col. Bayard desired 
to make "Elizabeth" a point for boat and ship building, and 
for that purpose brought out from Philadelphia, a company 
of skilled ship-builders, who built the first vessel launched on 
the waters of the Monongahela. In 1812, he was tendered a 
major general's commission in the army, but his bodily infirmi- 
ties demanded that he should decline its acceptance. He died 
at Pittsburgh, December 13, 1815, aged sixty-seven, and was 
buried in the grave-yard of the First Presbyterian church. 
With regard to Capt. Peterson [Gabriel], I knew him well. He 
lived about two miles above Elizabeth, on the opposite side of 
the river. I saw but little of him after I moved to Pittsburgh, 
in 1815. He called upon me, and spent a day at my house in 
1825. He was then aged and infirm, and I am under the im- 
pression he died a short time afterwards, and was buried at 
or near Elizabeth." — Manuscript letter of John B. Bayard (son

of Col. Stephen Bayard) to Isaac Craig, Esq., dated November 
13, 1876. 

In a deposition of Lieut. Gabriel Peterson, he says: "I was 
near Col. Bayard at the battle of Brandywine, when he was 
struck down by a cannon ball, that broke a rifle gun of Sergt. 
Wyatt and his shoulder, and then struck Col. Bayard on the 
head and shoulder, and tumbled him over on the ground for 
near two rods. Deponent helped him up on his feet — he was 
frantic, and seemed much hurt, but being much engaged at 
that time deponent could not render him any assistance." 

In an application of John Holton, a private in this regiment, 
he says: He, Holton, was in the battles of Ash Swamp and 
Bound Brook, and that he was wounded in the thigh at Brandy- 
wine, and with a bayonet at Paoli, and that they were engaged 
at Germantown. Robert Hunter, of Finley's company, states 
that he was wounded at Bound Brook, and also at Paoli. 

Van Swearingen was probably the most noted captain in the 
Eighth Penn'a. On the 19th of September, he and a lieutenant, 
and twenty privates were captured in a sudden dash that scat- 
tered Morgan's men. He fell into the hands of the Indians, 
but was rescued by Gen. Eraser's bat man (one who takes care 
of his officer's horse), who took him before the General. The 
latter interrogated him concerning the number of the American 
army, but got no answer, except that it was commanded by 
Gens. Gates and Arnold. He then threatened to hang him. 
"You may, if you please," said Van Swearingen. Eraser then 
rode off, leaving him in care of Sergt. Dunbar, who consigned 
him to Lt. Auburey, who ordered him to be placed among the 
other prisoners, with directions not to be ill -treated. Swear- 
ingen, after Burgoyne's army was removed to Virginia, made 
especial exertions to have Dunbar and Auburey exchanged. 
Swearingen was the first sheriff of Washington county in 1781, 
resided in now Eayette county, opposite Greenfield. His daugh- 
ter became the wife of the celebrated Capt. Samuel Brady, 
also of the Eighth Penn'a, so conspicuous in the annals of 
Western Pennsylvania. 

In Penn'a Archives (O. S. Vol. x, page 611), will be found a 
letter from Gen. Wilkinson, giving an account of Lieut. John 
Hardin's services in the campaign against Burgoyne. It ap- 
pears that at the date of the letter (Nov., 1784), that Lieut. 
Hardin was second on the return for sheriff of Fayette county.

NINTH PENNSYLVANIA REGIMENT, (a.) 



From the only return thus far discovered of the Ninth 
Pennsylvania regiment, dated July 17, 1777, and signed by 
Col. George Nagel, we take the following data: There were 
then present, lieutenant colonel, major, eight captains, fourteen 
lieutenants, adjutant, paymaster, quarter-master and surgeon, 
twenty-three sergeants, twelve drums and fifes, two hundred 
and nine privates present, fit for duty; on detachment at Mor- 
ristown, ten; sick, in hospital at Blackwater, ten; Chatham, 
six; Philadelphia, four; sick, in camp, fourteen; recruiting, 
five; on furlough, six; prisoners, three; on command, two; 
deaths, twenty-six; discharged, ten; deserted, eighty-four; 
to the enemy, «ight; missing, seven; prisoner, one. 

Under the command of Col. Richard Butler, this regiment 
took a prominent share in the capture of Stony Point.* Lieut. 
George Knox led the forlorn hope (consisting of twenty men) 
of the right column in the assault, and was the second man in- 
side of the works, for which he received four hundred dollars; 
this he directed to be distributed among his men; for his gal- 
lantry he was breveted captain, by resolution of Congress. 
Gen. Wayne, in a letter to President Reed, of 26th July, says: 
"Gibbon, of Sixth, and Knox, of Ninth, two young gentlemen, 
led the van of each column. Gibbon lost seventeen men. 
Killed in Butler's regiment, one sergeant and two privates; 
wounded, Lieut. Col. Hay, of Tenth, two sergeants, two cor- 
porals, and twenty-five privates." St. Clair to Reed, in a 
letter dated July 25, 1779, says, "my friend. Col. Butler, com- 
manded one of the attacks, and distinguished himself." 

After the Revolt in the Penn'a Line in 1781, the Ninth Penn- 
sylvania was pretty generally re-enlisted under their old colo- 
nel and his captains in the Fifth Penn'a, their depreciation 
being settled at Reading, between the 23d and 27th of March, 
1781. 

*This noted capture took place July 16, 177D.

[Endorsed] A List of all Officers who have served in the 
Ninth Pennsylvania Regiment since January 1, 1777, with the 
dates of their Commissions, Occurrences, Claims of Rank, etc. 



[On back of Return of Officers of the Ninth Pennsylvania 
Regiment, referred to therein.] 

Captain Joseph McClellan and Captain Thomas Bartholomew 
Bowen of the Ninth Pennsylvania Regiment found their claim 
of Rank as Mentioned in the Within List, on the following 
Pretentions: 

Early in 1776, Three Battalions of regular Troops Under the 
command of Colonel Miles, were raised for two years by the 
State of Pennsylvania, and were enter'd into the Continental 
Service, under the Denomination of State Troops. In these 
the Claimants receiv'd Commissions. 



400 



CONTINENTAL LINE. 



Mr. McClellan receiv'd a Captaincy on the 15th of July, and 
Mr. Bowen as the Eldest Subaltern, should have succeeded to 
a Company vice Captain Peebles, vs^ho died in Captivity the 2d 
September, 1776, of the Wounds he receiv'd in the Battle of 
Long Island. 

The Executive Power of the State of Pennsylvania having 
thought proper to reduce the three Battalions to one, left it to 
the choice of the Officers, whether they would continue in the 
State Service or accept Commissions in the Continental Regi- 
ments on the (then) New Establishment; and these Claimants, 
with other of the Senior Officers were (agreeable to their 
Choice) transferr'd. — Several Junior Officers were made Cap- 
tains in that Regiment, and now ^,ake Rank of Captains Bowen 
and McClellan, by having Commissions of earlier dates; that 
Regiment having been made Continental, and the Officers re- 
ceiv'd Commissions from Congress of the dates of their first 
Appointments in the Service of the State. These Claims were 
allowed by a Court of Inquiry, of which Lieutenant Colonel 
Bure was President, in January last, and the proceedings de- 
liver'd to Major General Lord Sterling— A Copy of which (it is 
said) was transmitted to the Honorable the Board of War.

TENTH PENNSYLVANIA REGIMENT. 



The Tenth Pennsylvania regiment was raised also agreeably 
to a resolution of Congress, of September 16, 1776. By an un- 
published memorandum of the Council of Safety, it appears 
that the captain and other subaltern officers of the Tenth 
Pennsylvania were appointed upon the 4th of December, 1776, 
except Capt. Shade, whose appointment is dated on the fifth of 
the month. Their rank was to be governed by the dates of 
their commissions in the battalion or one year service, or at 
least that was the ordinary rule or assumed to be by the ofii- 
cers themselves as I'egulating their rank. Promotion and ap- 
pointment out of this order, affected the Tenth, perhaps, to a 
greater degree than other regiments; and it owed its perma- 
nent organization and efficiency to the business qualifica- 
tions and soldierly abality of its lieutenant colonel, Adam 
Hubley. 

As early as January 23, 1777 (Penn'a Archives, 2d series, vol. 
1, page 694), Lieut. Col. Dunlap resigned on account of an 
alleged preference over him. This was followed by Col. Pen- 
rose's resignation, March 7 (ibid. 711), and remonstrances of 
the subalterns (ibid, page 717), and in a manuscript letter dated 
March 14, 1777, Capt. Henry Shade protests against the appoint- 
ment of Caleb North to be major of the Tenth. 

From a return, dated "camp at Morristown, July 8, 1777," 
which is a summary of the state of tne regiment from the 2d 
of December, 1776, to the first of June, 1777, signed by Lieut. 
Col. Adam Hubley, there were present nineteen commissioned 
and staff officers, twenty-seven sergeants, and twelve drums 
and fifes; of privates, one hundred and thirty-nine present, fit 
for duty; eleven sick, present, twenty-eight sick, absent, total 
enlisted, three hundred and eighty-six; total joined, three hun- 
dred and seventy-seven; total mustered, three hundred and 
thirty-one; total brought into the field, two hundred and thirty- 
three; taken by the enemy, twenty-two; taken by prior enlist- 
ment, thirty-seven. Officers recruiting: Captains Long, Shade, 
Calhoun, Sample, and Cox; Lieutenants Schrack, Stake, and 
Steel; Second Lieutenants Patton, Drummond, and Skinner; 
Ensigns Cole and Patterson; chaplain, surgeon, and surgeon's 
mate not yet appointed. 

A return, dated November 1. 1777, sets forth nineteen com-

missioned officers and staff present, including surgeon, pay- 
master; non-commissioned officers, seventeen; six drums and 
five fifes; eighty-four rank and file, fit for duty; nine sick, 
present, forty-four sick, absent, and twelve on command; Capts. 
Cox and Calhoun, sick, absent; Capt. Shade, cashiered by 
general court martial, October 16; Lieut. Steel, wounded Sep- 
tember 11; Lieut. Shiles, wounded, and died since; Lieut. 
Gordon, absent, on furlough, since October 1.5; Lieut. Tripler, 
resigned November 1; Lieut. Carson, prisoner with the enemy 
September 4; Ensign Schrack, resigned September 4; Ensign 
Shanks, cashiered for stealing two pairs of shoes, October 12; 
Adjutant Wright, deserted; Quarter-Master Small, resigned. 

The following are prisoners of war, killed, and missing in the 
several battles and skirmishes, not accounted for in the above 
return: 

Taken at Bound Brook, April 13, rank and file, 15 

Taken at Princeton, T 

Missing at the battle at Brandywine, Paoli, and German- 
town, &c., 38 

Total, 60 

By a resolution of the Supreme Executive Council, dated 
April 3, 1778 (Colonial Records, Penn'a, volume xi, page 456), 
the Eleventh Pennsylvania was incorporated with the Tenth, 
and Col. Humpton directed to take command in the room of 
Col. Nagel, and, by a return, dated "Camp at White Plains, 
September 13, 1778," it appears: 

"The following officers were left out of the 10th Penn'a in 
consequence of the new arrangement, and considered as super- 
numeraries: George Nagel, colonel; William Cox, David 
Schrack, captains; William Knox and Robert Hooper, Ist 
lieutenants; John Cole, Adam Keller, Daniel Dennis, and Jacob 
Tolbert, 2nd lieutenants. N. B.— Captain Cox, before the new 
arrangement took place, resigned his commission verbally to 
Col. Nagel, but since considered himself one of the supernu- 
meraries, in order to have the emoluments that may be 
allowed such officers. 

"Signed, ADAM HUBLEY, JR., 

"Lt. Col. 10 Pa."

and eighty-six; sick present, twenty; sick absent, twenty-five; 
on furlough, two; with the light infantry corps, seventy-one; 
with wagons and other menial duty, twenty. 

An independent company, which was to be raised and sta- 
tioned at Lancaster, of which Jacob Weaver was captain, Ed- 
ward Cowan, first lieutenant, William Feltman, second lieu- 
tenants, and Andrew Backenstose, ensign, seems to have joined 
this regiment, or to have been annexed to it.

THE NEW ELEVENTH PENNSYLVANIA, (a). 



The resolutions of Congress organizing this regiment are 
fully referred to in the note to Col. Hartley's ante; and it was 
considered proper to publish, in connection with this, what 
little material remains of the independent companies. Mal- 
colm's and Spencer's regiments were of the sixteen additional 
regiments, and included companies raised either in nnrt or 
whole in Pennsylvania. 

A return of the state of the regiment, made June 25, 1779, 
at Sunbury, by Col. Hubley, gives the following data: "Pres- 
ent, lieutenant colonel, major, four captains, one captain lieu- 
tenant, eight lieutenants, three ensigns, paymaster, adjutant, 
quartermaster, surgeon and mate, sergeant major, quarter 
master sergeant, drum major, fife major, twenty two sergeants, 
eight drummers and eight fifers.

Capt. Claypoole's, 33

"Absent officers: Capt. Kearsley, w'th Col. Spencer's regi- 
ment; Capt. Carbery, doing duty with light horse; Capt. For- 
ester, in Maryland, on furlough, since February 1, 1779; Capt. 
Bush, in Philadelphia, on command since June 12. 

"N. B. — The independent companies, in Col. Spencer's regi- 
ment, have not yet joined, the whole amount to about seventy- 
five men." 

The following correspondence and memoranda, together with 
Lieut. Col. Hubley's journal, and such of his letters as have 
been heretofore published in Penn'a Archives, 0. S., vol. vii, 
make up the record of this regiment so far as it has been pre- 
served. Lieut. Col. Hubley's order book, recently discovered 



632 CONTINENTAL LINE. 

and placed in the office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth, 
has added much to the larger portion of what follows. A few 
letters of Col. Hartley, from the Hand Papers, are prefatory. 



Col. Hartley to Gen. Hand. 

York, May 10, 1779. 

"* * * The following Persons are brave Soldiers and good 
Woodsmen: Captain Hawkins Boone, Lieut. Robt. King & 
Wm. Simms, and they have good Knowledge of the Country 
to Tioga. 

"If Col. James Murray will go with you, he will be very use- 
ful. He is well acquainted with Indian affairs, and has a good 
Idea of the Indian Country. More persons you will hear of 
at Sunbury. 

"You should engage Captains Ferguson, J. Camplin, & Lieut. 
William Campbell. They are excellent woodsmen — the latter 
you should have near your person. Colonel Hunter can tell 
you where you may find them. 

"As Guides (besides those which you will be able to hear 
of yourself), you should take one Fox, & one Rummerfield, 
of Sunbury. Colonel Zeb. Butler, and Capt. Spalding, of 
Wyoming, can inform you of others." • 



Col. Hartley to Gen. Hand. 

"York, June 3d, 1779. 

"—Fletcher, a private in Col. Hartley's regt. 

"— Ippie, " " " (a Dutch Lad.) 

"In addition to the Persons who I have mentioned before, 
I must mention a Robert Crownover to you — he lives at Muncy 
— he is well acquainted with the country to Tioga, & is an 
intelligent, sensible young man and a soldier. 

"You will find the Back Woodsmen upon some occasions 
very cautious. Perhaps it may be proper often, but some 
Times it may be necessary to make bold pushes. I would 
tell you several good officers, their own good Behavior will 
doubtless recommend many of them to you. Nevertheless, 
I shall mention a Mr. Houston to you; he is adjutant of my 
Regiment. He was Sergt. Major of Grenadiers in the British 



NEW ELEVENTH PENNSYLVANIA. 633 

Army — he had a Brother, an officer in our army, and came 
and joined us. He is the best adjutant I have seen— he is 
very bold and enterprizing — as soon as you begin your march, 
I recommend him particularly to you. If General Sullivan 
commands, you will please to mention Houston to him." 



Col. Hartley to Gen. Hand. 

"York, June 3d, 1779. 

"Sir: As I understand, you have no Horse sent you from 
the main army, I would give it as my weak opinion, that 
you should at least preserve the number which Captain Car- 
bery took up. If one Corps should think it hard they should 
furnish the whole of the men; they ought to be pick't from 
the whole Troops of the Command, and you will find no officer 
more litTto command them than Mr. Carbery." 



"1779, 13th June, James Crawford, of Northumberland, for- 
mer major of the Twelfth Pennsylvania regiment, offers his 
services to Gen. Hand." 



Lieut. Col. Hubley to Gen. Washington. 

"Camp Millstone, May 19, 1779. 

"Sir: By the resignation of Col. Hartley, of the 11th Penn'a 
Regt., I, as eldest Lt. Col. of the Line, considered myself 
entitled to the same, and accordingly wrote to the Honl. the 
Executive Council of the State of Penn'a, requesting they 
would recommend me to the Board of War, and procure the 
appointment to which I was entitled. 

"The Council, in consequence of a certificate, signed by Genl. 
St. Clair, as commanding officer of the Penn'a Line, certifying 
my pretentions. Resolved that I should be recommended, and 
accordingly did recommend me as being entitled to the com- 
mand of said Regiment. Previous to this Resolve, His Excel- 
lency, the President of Pennsylvania, informed Col. Connor 
(present Lt. Colo, of the Regiment) of my claim, and requested 
to know whether he had any claim prior to mine. Colo. Con-

nor informed his Excellency he had not, and insinuated that 
he had no objections to my being promoted. 

"The Resolve being accordingly handed to the Board of 
War — not doubting but a commission would be granted — on 
the delivery thereof, the Board objected to the granting of the 
Commission, and informed me that Col. Connor claimed rank 
of me. I informed them of what had passed between the 
President and Colo. Connor, and believed that matter was 
fully settled, but requested before they issued the commission, 
they would send to Col. Connor for further information in 
the matter. This they did, and received a letter wrote by 
your Excellency to Col. Connor, in which it appeared he 
claimed rank of me. ihe Board accordingly concluded not 
to interfere in the matter until they had heard from your 
Excellency on the subject. 

"I am a total stranger to Col. Connor's pretensions of claim- 
ing rank of me, unless it is because he went out as Lieut, 
of the 1st Penn'a Regiment, and considers himself an elder 
officer on that account. If that be his claim, he might, with 
the same propriety, claim rank of Gen. St. Clair and every 
colonel in the line. 

"All that I shall say on my part is, that I was appointed 
(being then out of the army and in a private station), a, major 
to one of the additional regiments raised in 1776, for the pur- 
pose of filling up the quota ordered to be raised in the State 
of Pennsylvania, and in regular course, promoted to the rank 
of lieutenant colonel (my commission bearing date as such 
October 4, 1776). I served in the same brigade with Col. Con- 
nor for a considerable time; he ever submitted to my rank, 
and never intimated he thought himself injured by my rank. 

"Several gentlemen in the line claimed rank of me upon 
the same principles. As well a Board of General Officers, (met 
at the Cross-roads in Pennsylvania for the purpose of settling 
the rank of the Pennsylvania Line), as the Board of Arrange- 
ment convened for the same purpose at White Plains, deter- 
mined in my favor. 

"I beg your Excellency will look into this matter and take 
such steps for the settlement of the same as you shall think 
proper. 

"I am, with the greatest respect, your Excellency's, 
"Most obedient servant, 

"A. HUBLEY, Lt. Col. 
"His Excellency Gen. Washington." 



NEW ELEVENTH PENNSYLVANIA. 635 

Lieut. Col. Hubley to the Board of General Officers. 

"Camp Millstone, May 26, 1779. 

"Gentlemen: Having acquired some knowledge of Colo. 
Connor's pretentions since my writing to his Excellency on 
that subject, I beg leave to make some few observations there- 
upon. 

"Colo. Connor, I think, in his claims, observes that he ought 
to have been appointed commandant of the 11th Regt. previous 
to its being taken into the Penn'a line — upon what principles 
he founds this claim, I am a stranger to. He certainly must 
be totally unacquainted with the time of Col. Hartley's resig- 
nation. Had he resigned his commission, previous to the Regi- 
ment being taken into the line, there might have been some 
show of propriety in it; but this not being the case (Colo. 
Hartley's resignation being some considerable time after the 
Regt. being taken in the line), I cannot think his preten- 
sions upon these principles can have any weight. 

"With respect to his being a Senior officer in the same line, 
formerly with me, I beg leave to contradict. It's well known 
the Regiment he alludes to, formerly commanded by Col. 
Thompson, was not considered a Pennsylvania Regiment, nor 
was it taken into the line as one until Some time in 1776. 
The Regiment to which I was appointed being raised in 1775, 
and then called the first Penna. Regt.* 

"Col. Connor further says that some time in 1776, he was 
ordered on Command to the Southward, as Brigade Major 
to Genl. Armstrong, and held the rank of major, .ind after 
his return from the Southward he was appointed a Lt. Col. 
in Col. Hartley's regiment. In order to throw proper light 
upon this matter, as Colo. Connor has been by no means 
explicit, I beg leave to add, that before his arrival in Phila- 
delphia from the Southward, he stood, through the interest 
of his friends, a candidate for the Majority in the Regiment 
to which I was appointed; that agreeable to the mode of 
appointing officers, we were voted for, when I was almost 
unanimously chosen Major to the 10 P. Regt. and in regular 
turn promoted to the rank of Lieut. Col. in Col. Hartley's 
regiment, being some considerable time after my promotion. 

"He has never taken notice that in his leaving the Regi- 
ment and going to the Southward, it was considered as giving 
up his commission in the same, and, in consequence thereof, 

•Quere? First Penn'a battalion. Col. de Hasp. 



636 CONTINENTAL LINE. 

another officer appointed to fill up his vacancy. And further, 
he does not tell you that he was appointed a Lieut. Colo, in 
Colo. Hartley's regiment, in room of Lt. Col. Wilkinson who 
resigned, but says he was appointed a Lieut. Colo, to one 
of the additional regiments, which implies as if he was ap- 
pointed at the original constitution of the Regts. 

"As much has already been said in this matter, I shall con- 
clude with my pretentions of rank I now hold in the line of 
Penn'a. I totally claim my rank as an appointment (and not 
as a promotion, being then out of the army as an officer, and 
in a private station for some considerable time and served as 
a volunteer.) When I received my commission as Major, I 
considered I had received it from a body, who were vested 
with power to appoint and arrange the officers; so have two 
distinct Boards since considered it, and determined in my 
favor. 

"I beg leave for further particulars respecting my rank, to 
refer you to the letter from me to his Excellency (which no 
doubt will be laid before you) on the subject. 

"I am with the greatest respect. Gentlemen, 

"Your most ob't Humble Servant, 
"A. HUBLEY, JR., Lt. Col. 

"To the Hon. the Board of General Officers, now sitting for the 
purpose of settling Rank": 

"The Hon. the Board will observe that I don't mean to 
claim rank from my first entering, but that what has been 
said with respect to my first appointment, is to answer Colo. 
Connor's observations thereupon. 



"Philad'a, June 8, 1779. 

"In consequence of the resignation of Colo. Thomas Hartley 
(I being the Senior Lt. Colo, in the Penn'a Line), I was this 
day commissioned Lt. Colo. Commandant of said Regiment, 
*o rank from the 13th day of February, 1779. 

"ADM. HUBLEY, JR., 
"Colo. Comt. 11th Pa. Reg't." 

Col. Hubley writes to Gen. Hand from Sunbury, under date 
of June 15: 

"This day arrived, and took command of the following forts: 
Muncy, Jenkins, &c., and this place." 



NEW ELEVENTH PENNSYLVANIA. 637 

Col. Hubley writes to Gen. Hand from Sunbury, June 17: 
"A Board of General Officers to determine the dispute of 
rank between Major Prowell and the Captains of the Penn'a 
line determined in favor of the latter, in consequence of which 
he will be removed from the rank he now holds, and a Senior 
Captain take his place. * * j am extremely sorry for the 
loss of Major Prowell; he is a worthy, good officer." 



Lieut. Col. Adam Hubley to Gen. Hand. 

"Sunbury, June 22nd, 1779. 

"Dear General: Your favour of the 19th came safe to hand 
last evening. I'm extremely happy to find I shall be under 
your command this campaign. I have communicated this 
agreeable piece of news to a number of my officers, who equally 
express their happiness on the occasion, and what adds to 
the happiness is, that your corps is to be a select one, to act 
as Light Infantry. 

"Agreeably to your orders, I have given directions for the 
Regiment to be in readiness at a moment's warning. 

"Genl. Sullivan, it seems, is to determine on the continu- 
ance of the Dragoons in my Regiment. I must beg you will 
use your influence with him to have them dismounted, unless 
they can be annex'd and do duty with us. 

"A few days since Capt. Kearsley, late of my regiment, 
arrived at this post with intent again to take command of 
his compy. It appears, by the inclosed letters (the original 
of which is in my hand), that he had absolutely resigned his 
commission and left the army; upon what principle he claims 
the company, I know not. I cannot think of giving him any 
command in my regiment, unless the matter is properly set- 
tled. The officers are determined not to submit to his taking 
command. I dread the consequences, unless something is done 
speedily. Capt. Kearsley leaves this to-morrow for Wyoming. 
I beg you will state to him this matter, and the consequences 
that must attend it should he persist in claiming rank in 
the regiment. 

"We shall be able to load the greatest part of the boats at 
this place. I expect they will be at Fort Jenkins about the 
25th, at which place the officer commanding them will wait 
your further orders. 

"The remainder are on their way to Cox's town; those, with

what new ones may be finished, will be sufficient to bring up 
what stores are at present there. Every step is taken to expe- 
dite the forwarding of the stores, &e. 

"I anxiously look forward for the moment when I shall have 
the pleasure of seeing you. 

"And am sincerely, your most 

Obedient humble servant,

TWELFTH PENNSYLVANIA REGIMENT, (a.) 



Congress, by resolution, authorized this regiment to be 
raised in the counties of Northampton and Northumberland 
and among the lai^t acts of the Convention, to form a State 
Constitution, September 28,- 1776, was a choice of its field 
officers, from its members; William Cook, delegate from North- 
umberland, colonel; Neigal Gray, delegate from Northampton 
county; lieutenant colonel, and James Crawford, delegate from 
Northumberland county, major. Peter Withington was the 
first captain appointed by the Council of Safety, October 1; 
by a minute of the Council of October 4, Col. Cooke, Major 
Crawford, and Capt. ¥/ithington took the qualification directed 
by the Convention, and commissions were delivered them, 
signed by the President of Congress; and on the same day, 
by resolution of the Council, Nicholas Miller and Hawkins 
Boone were appointed captains, Thomas Brandon and Hanna- 
niah Lincoln first lieutenants; Robert King and James Wil- 
liamson, second lieutenants. On the fourteenth, the Council 
resolved that the commissions of all the captains and sub- 
alterns of the Twelfth shall be dated October 1, 1776, and their 
rank hereafter settled. On the same day, John Brady and 
Major John Harris, both of Northumberland county, were 
appointed captains, and Christopher Gettig, first lieutenant, 
Francis Allison, surgeon. The rest of the original captains, 
with other subalterns, were appointed on the 16th of October. — 
(Col. Records, vol. 10, page 756.) 

The greater portion of the regiment was recruited upon the 
West Branch of the Susquehanna, and on the 18th of Decem- 
ber, it left Sunbury, in boats, for the battle-fields of New 
Jersey. Being composed of good riflemen and scouts, it was 
detailed on picket and skirmish duty. It (with the Third, 
Ninth, and Sixth Pennsylvania) was in Brig. Gen. Thomas 
Conway's brigade. Its headquarters were at the five cross 
roads at Metuchin, between Quibbletown and Amboy. Its 
companies wre engaged in the various skirmishes in that 
neighborhood; ata Bound Brook, April 12, 1777, Piscataway, 
May 10, where Joseph Lorenz and twenty-one others were made 
prisoners by the IJiltish, Wendell Lorentz making his escape 
by running in among a flock of sheep; at Short Hills, June 26, 
and Bonhamtown. In June, Col. Daniel Morgan's rifle com-

mand was formed, and a detachment from the Twelfth Penn- 
sylvania, under the command of Capt. Hawkins Boone, was 
placed in it. For a notice of this command, see Historical 
note to the First Pennsylvania. In the battle of Brandywine, 
the Twelfth was engaged under Sullivan at Birmingham 
church, losing heavily. Major Crawford, Capt. Brady, and 
other officers were wounded, Lieut. William Boyd, of Brady's 
company killed. At Germantown, Conway's brigade led the 
attack on the left wing of the British, being in front of the 
troops that composed the right wing of the American army, 
and the Twelfth was in the hottest of the fight, losing heavily 
in men, second lieutenant John Carothers of the officers killed. 
The Twelfth wintered with the rest of the army at Valley 
Forge, and at Monmouth the remnant of it was nearly 
destroyed, as testified to in many of the statements made by 
the privates, on file in the office of the Secretary of the Com- 
monwealth. Meanwhile, April 2, 1778, the General A i em- 
bly had appointed a committee to confer upon the best ' ^ans 
of reducing three of the regiments, and it was ordere '. that 
the Twelfth be incorporated with the Third, which ai • nge- 
ment went into effect on the 1st of July, and Capts. John 
Brady and Boone, Lieuts. Dougherty and Robert Kin?: were 
ordered home by Gen. Washington to '-•ssist Col. Har^J^y in 
protecting the West Branch valley. Capt. Brady was a8<=»assi- 
nated by Indian scouts, near the town of Muncy, Apr I 11, 
1779, and Capt. Boone fell near Fort Freeland, on the '^9th 
of July, the same year.

Thirteenth Pennsylvania. 691 



THIRTEENTH PENNSYLVANIA REGIMENT, (a.) 



By resolution of Congress, of November 12, 1777, the Penn- 
sylvania State Regiment of Foot was taken into the Conti- 
nental service as the Thirteenth Pennsylvania. It was known 
as early as July 6, 1777, (Penn'a Archives, 0. S., vol. 5, page 
715), as the Thirteenth Pennsylvania. A return, dated Phila- 
delphia, June 20, 1777, signed by Ludwig Sprogell, commissary 
general of musters, shows present, colonel, lieutenant colonel, 
two majors, eleven captains, twenty lieutenants, and eleven 
ensigns, chaplain, surgeon, paymaster, surgeon's mate, adju- 
tant, quarter-master, quarter-master sergeant, sergeant major, 
drum major, fife major, forty-four sergeants, nine corporals, 
twenty-two drums and fifes, four hundred and seventy-seven 
rank and file, fit for duty; sick, present, twelve; sick, at hos- 
pital, twenty-one; on command, seventeen; on furlough, ten; 
deserted, seventy-six; total, six hundred and thirteen. 

As full rolls are printed ante, in connection with the State 
Regiment of Foot, up to the 1st of May, 1777, and these cor- 
respond nearly exactly with the columns of sergeants, cor- 
porals, drums, and fifes, and present, fit for duty, and no 
rolls have been found subsequently except Capt. Scott's, it 
was judged proper to print, in connection with the Thirteenth, 
only such of the rank and file as we found distinctively marked 
"13th." 

This regiment, under Col. Stewart's command, fought at 
Brandywine and Germantown. In Col. Stewart's letter, printed 
in the Penn'a Archives, O. S., vol. v, page 714, he says: My 
loss in killed and missing in the two actions does not exceed 
sixteen, besides the wounded; am inclined to think most of 
the missing are either killed or badly wounded. He submits 
returns which are printed, ibid., pages 715 and 716, which show 
only a difference of three men between the periods of these 
dates, July 6, 1777, and October 27, 1777, but in the latter he 
returns of officers, nine captains, fourteen lieutenants, and ten 
ensigns, five staff, and forty-four sergeants, eighteen drums and 
fifes. He accounts for this by saying, "I have been lucky 
enough to have received a good many recruits, which is the 
cause of my being able to keep it up so well." He reports 
his sick, present, at forty-eight; sick, absent, seventy; on 
command, sixty-nine; on furlough, three; total, five hundred 



692 CONTINENTAL LINE. 

and thirty-seven rank and file, as against five liundred and 
forty, July 6, 1777; of the sick, he says, twenty-two are 
wounded, these I expect v/ill, in a short time, be able to join 
me. For the part the regiment took in the battle of German- 
town, the reader is referred to Col. Stewart's letter to Gen. 
Gates, in Penn'a Magazine of History, vol. 1, page 400 (1877). 

On the 1st of January, 177S, the term of enlistment of Miles' 
and Atlee's battalions expired, or was so claimed by the men, 
and many left and were discharged. On the 21st of February- 
1778, Major Francis Murray and some of the men were cap- 
tured at Newtown, twenty-four miles from Philadelphia. On 
the 3d of April, 1778, it being apparent that the men, whose 
enlistments were made in April and May, 1776, in the original 
State battalions for two years could be held no longer, the 
Executive Council resolved to incorporate the Thirteenth with 
the Second Pennsyivaiiia, and this arrangement went inio 
effect July 1, 1778. 



Col. Walter Stewart, the colonel of the Thirteenth, and 
afterwards of the Second Pennsylvania, was of Irish descent, 
had a fair, florid complexion, was vivacious, intelligent, and 
well educated, and it was said was the handsomest man in the 
American army. — Custis' Recollections. On the 11th of April, 
1781, just before starting upon the Southern campaign, with 
Gen. Wayne, he married a daughter of Blair McClenachan, a 
prominent patriotic merchant of Philadelphia. He retired the 
service, January 1, 1783, with the brevet rank of brigadier 
general. He was afterwards a prominent merchant of Phila- 
delphia, major general of the first division of the Pennsyl- 
vania militia. His portrait is full length in Trumbull's picture 
of the surrender of Cornwallis, on the left of the line of the 
American officers. He died in Philadelphia, at the early age 
of forty years, June 14 or 15, 1796, and was buried on the 16th, 
with the honors of war, the Society of Cincinnati, and the 
officers of the first division following the corpse as mourners. — 
Advertiser, June 16, 1796— Letter of Wm. Brooke Rawle, Esq., 
to the Editors.

ADDITIONAL REGIMENT. 

COL. THOMAS HARTLEY'S. 



JAN. 11, 1777— JAN. 13, 1779. (a) 



(735) 



(736) 



COL. THOMAS HARTLEY'S REGIMENT. 737 



COL. THOMAS HARTLEY'S REGIMENT, (a.) 



On the 27th of December, 1776, Congress passed a resolu- 
tion, authorizing Gen. Washington to "raise and collect to- 
gether, in the most speedy and effectual manner, from any 
and all of these United States, sixteen battalions of infantry, 
in addition to those already voted by Congress, and to appoint 
the officers for the said battalions of infantry, &c." On the 
11th of January, 1777, Gen. Washington issued commissions 
and authority to raise two of these regiments to Lieut. Col. 
Thomas Hartley, of the Seventh Pennsylvania, and Major 
John Patton, of Miles' rifle regiment. No returns of either 
of these regiments have been discovered, and very few memo- 
rials of any kind, it is believed, have survived the ravages of 
fire and time. Hartley's regiment was in the First Pennsyl- 
vania brigade, Gen. Wayne's division, Hartley commanding 
the brigade, in the battles of Brandywine and Germantown. 
What its actual strength was cannot be told. After these 
actions, November 1, 1777, Morgan Connor makes a requisi- 
tion for one hundred and fifty blankets for the regiment. It 
is very apparent that the regiment did heavy fighting at 
Brandywine, from its loss of officers and men. For the 
campaign of 1778, on the West Branch, reference is rnailo to 
Col. Hartley's report to Congress, printed in Penn'a Archives, 
0. S., vol. vii, page 5, and CoJ. Hartley's letters, in ibid., vol. 
vi. The regiment was ordered to Sunbury, about the 14th 
of July, 1778, and remained in service on the West Branch, 
until incorporated with the new Eleventh. 

On the 16th of December, 1778, Congress resolved that Col. 
Hartley's regiment, and the four independent companies raised 
in the State of Pennsylvania, commanded by Capts. Doyle, 
Wilkins, Steel, and Calderwood, and also the remains of Col. 
Patton's regiment, except Capt. McLane's company, be incor- 
porated into one regiment, and added to the Pennsylvania 
Line as an Eleventh regiment, and that Capt. McLane's com- 
pany be annexed to the Delaware regiment; subsequently, 
January 13, 1779, this action was reconsidered, and it was 
resolved "that the regiment lately commanded by Col. Patton, 
(Capt. McLane, his subalterns, and men raised in the Dela- 
ware State excepted), and the independent companies raised 

47— Vol. HI— 5th Ser.

in Pennsylvania, and afterwards annexed to Col. Malcolm's 
regiment, be incorporated with Col. Hartley's regiment; the 
whole to form a complete battalion upon the new establish- 
ment, and be added to the Pennsylvania Line as the Eleventh 
Regiment of that State; that the several officers be arranged 
by the Board of War, and enjoy their rank according to their 
commissions or appointments, respectively." 



Col. Thomas Hartley was born near Reading, Berks county, 
September 7, 1748, and removed to York, Pennsylvania, when 
eighteen years of age, where he studied law and was admitted 
to the bar July 25, 1769. The sources of information are so 
full in regard to him that the editors deem it only necessary 
to refer to Carter's and Glossbrenner's History of York county, 
and the records of our State and National councils for evi- 
dences of his brilliant career as a soldier, lawyer, and states- 
man. It is proper to add, however, that it is from his numerous 
letters among the Yeates papers, published anonymously in 
Force's Archives, that full information upon the Canada cam- 
paign has been obtained, and but for his letters, to be found 
in the Penn'a Archives, Old Series, very little would be 
known of military operations on the West Branch in 1778- 
1779. He died at York, Pennsylvania, December 21, 1800, and 
was buried in the burial-ground of the church of St. John, in 
that place. 



Lieut. Col. James Wilkinson served as a subaltern officer in 
Thompson's Rifle regiment before Boston. Gen. Washington 
appointed him lieutenant colonel of this regiment; but he 
seems, shortly after, to have resigned to take the position of 
adjutant general of Pennsylvania, with the rank of brigadier 
general, and was transferred to the northern army as adjutant 
general for Gen. Gates. His resignation as brigadier general 
and adjutant general of Pennsylvania will be found in Penn'a 
Archives, O. S., vol. x, page 610, without date; accepted, how- 
ever, November 8, 1784. For further particulars of him, refer- 
ence is made to his voluminous memoirs, which contain many 
interesting references to Pennsylvania troops and officers, 
both in the campaign in Canada in 1776, and that against 
Burgoyne in 1777. 

Lieut. Col. Morgan Connor was also among the first to enter 
the service of his country as a lieutenant of Capt. George 



COL. THOMAS HARTLEY'S REGIMENT. 739 

Nagel's company, in Col. Thompson's regiment. After the 
campaign of 1775-6, he was ordered south as brigade major for 
Gen. John Armstrong, with the ranlv of major. On his return, 
he succeeded Lieut. Col. Wilkinson, and, after the latter's resig- 
nation, became lieutenant colonel. In 1779, he claimed the 
rank of lieutenant colonel commandant of the new Eleventh. 
—See Hubley's Correspondence in Historical Note to New 
Eleventh. Subsequently he was made lieutenant colonel com- 
mandant of the Seventh. By a letter printed in Penn'a 
Archives, O. S., vol. viii, page 515, it appears that he was lost 
at sea in August, 1780. At all events, in 1782 his estate was 
administered upon. 

For notices of Maj. Evan Edwards, reference is made to the 
biographies of Gen. Charles Lee, to whom he was an aid. 



In a manuscript letter from Col. Hartley to Council, dated 
June 19, 1784, he says of Capt. Andrew Walker, "he entered the 
service with me, and, on account of his merit, was appointed 
captain in my regiment, and whilst under my command he 
was a punctual, brave, and deserving officer, and acquitted 
himself with the highest repution." 



Gapt. Archibald McAllister, died January 16, 1831, aged 
seventy-four years nine months and nine days, at his place 
called Fort Hunter, six miles above Harrisburg, where he is 
buried in a private burying ground. His roll as far as pre- 
served, was taken from an old company account book, loaned 
the editors by his grandson, James, who resides near the old 
homestead.

(756) 



COL. JOHN PATTON'S REGIMENT. 757 



COL. JOHN PATTON'S REGIMENT, (a.) 



As stated in the note to Hartley's, this was one of the six- 
teen additional regiments established upon a different footing 
from the eighty-eight regiments which were apportioned 
among the several States. The appointment of the officers 
was left to the Commander-in-chief, and he was empowered 
to raise the men in any or all of the United States. See 
Spark's Life and Writings of Washington, vol. iv, page 271, 
where will be found Col. Gist's commission and instructions. 
Those for the other colonels v/ere similar. 

Col. Patton being from Philadelphia, his regiment drew con- 
tributions, both in officers and men, from New Jersey, and 
Delaware. The memoranda, which are scant, refer altogether 
to Pennsylvanians. It is uncertain whether Lieut. Joseph 
Davis did not belong to Patton's, as he was a brother-in-law. 
His name, wherever it occurs, has "Hartley regiment" to it, 
but that may be because he was killed after Patton's v^^as con- 
solidated into Hartley's. There are a number of officers put 
in a list by themselves, postea, for the reason of uncertainty 
as to which regiment they belonged, because, though after- 
wards arranged in the new Eleventh, they should have credit 
for serving in 1777 and 1778. 

Col. Patton was born in Sligo, Ireland, in 1745, and resided 
in Philadelphia when appointed major of Col. Miles' battalion. 
After his resignation, in November, 1777, he was employed to 
purchase flour for the army. After the war he went into the 
iron business in connection with Col. Miles, and built Centre 
furnace, late in Harris township, Centre county, in 1792. He 
died there, in 1804, aged about fifty-seven, and is buried in 

the church-yard at Boalsburg. Col. Patton was six feet in 
height, of noble appearance and carriage, his hair red and eyes 
hazel. He had a fine address, with a very polished manner. 
His widow, Jane Davis, of Montgomery county, died in Hunt- 
ingdon, Pennsylvania, in 1832, aged eighty years. She was 
a sister of Capt. Benjamin Davis, and also of Capt. Joseph 
Davis, who was killed by the savages while the regiment was 
on its way to join Gen. Sullivan's expedition. 

Lawrence Keene, one of Col. Patton's captains, acted as aid 
to Gen. Mifflin. He was subsequently captain in the Third 



758 CONTINENTAL LINE. 

Pennsylvania, and was appointed prothonotary of Northum- 
berland county, September 25, 1783, and died in Sunbury in 
July, 1789. His wife, Gainor Lukens, was a daughter of John 
Lukens, Surveyor General of the State.

COL. HAZEN'S REGIMENT, 

"CONGRESS' OWN."

COL. HAZEN'S REGIMENT. 765 



COL. HAZEN'S REGIMENT, (a.) 



Col. Moses Hazen's regiment, known as "Congress' Own" 
and Canadian Old regiment, was raised under the authority 
of a resolution of Congress of January 20, 1776, to enlist one 
thousand more Canadians for one year (one having already 
been established under Col. James Livingston). January 22d, 
Moses Hazen was elected colonel, and Edward Antill, lieu- 
tenant colonel, by Congress. It went by the name of "Con- 
gress' Own," because not attached to the quota of any of the 
States. During the spring of 1776, about five hundred men 
were raised, but on the evacuation of Canada, the number so 
decreased, that when the regiment arrived at Albany, in Au- 
gust, 1776, it was reduced to less than one hundred. Hazen 
and Antill then went to Philadelphia to lay the state of the 
regiment before Congress. It was decided to continue it 
upon its original foundation; the men to serve during the 
war. The officers were authorized to raise the men in any 
and all of the United States. Lieut. Col. Antill superintended 
the recruiting in Pennsylvania and the Middle States, and 
the recruits chiefly consisted of men from those States, Col. 
Hazen meeting with no success in the Eastern States and New 
York, on account of high bounties there offered. 

For a detailed history of this regiment, see autobiography 
of its adjutant, late Benjamin Mooers, of Plattsburg, New 
York, in Historical Magazine, February, 1872, page 92. The 
winter of 1780-81, it remained at Fishkill, New York, thence 
it removed to West Point, from which place it moved down 
the Hudson and joined the army en route to Yorktown, where 
it took part in the siege, after which it was ordered to Lan- 
caster, where it lay ten months guarding the prisoners; thence 
it removed to Nev/ York; began to be furloughed in June, 
1783, and was fiually disbanded at White Plains, in Novem- 
ber of that year. 

In Col. Hazen's memorial, printed on pages 17, 18, 19, Penn'a 
Archives, old series, vol. viii, will also be found a very interest- 
ing history of the regiment up to November 30, 1779. By a 
letter from the officers, noted in proceedings of Executive 
Council, December 29, 1779, it appears there were one hun- 
dred and fifty-three, officers included, Pennsylvanians in this 
regiment at that date. See, also, Capt. Andrew Lee's diary 
in the Penn'a Magazine of History, 1879, page 167, for an 
account of regiment in Sullivan's expedition to Staten Island, 
August 22, 1777.

The GERMAN REGIMENT. 785 

THE GERMAN REGIMENT, (a) 



The German regiment originated from a resolution of Con- 
gress June 27. 1776, directing four companies of Germans to be 
raised in Pennsylvania,* and four companies in Maryland 
to compose "the German battalion," the companies to serve 
for three years, unless sooner discharged. Nicholas Hausseg- 
ger, major of the Fourth battalion (Wayne's), was commis- 
sioned colonel, and Pennsylvania furnished by far th > l:ir--st 
number, both of its officers and recruits. None of its regular 
rolls have survived, and the list is made up from returns of 
those who belonged to Pennsylvania as found in the Secre- 
tary's office. The regiment was in the field and engaged at 
Trenton and Princeton, and in May, 1777, was in Deborre's 
brigade, Sullivan's division. The colonel left the army after 
the battle of Monmouth, and returned to his farm near Leba- 
non, Pa. Lt. Col. Weltner succeeded to the command. The 
regiment took part in Sullivan's campaign against the In- 
dians. In the spring of 1780 it was stationed on the frontiers 
of Northumberland county. By a resolution of Congress in 
October the German regiment was reduced, and ended its or- 
ganization January 1, 1781. All the correspondence relative 
to this regiment found in the Secretary's office has been pub- 
lished in the old series of Archives, except the following orders 
found among the Hand papers: 

Gen. Hand to Major Burchardt. 

"Minisink, 5th April, 1779. 
"Sir: Agreeable to the orders you yesterday rec'd you will 
proceed to Wyoming, on the Susquehanna River, with the 
Regiment under your Immediate Command, Col. Armand's and 
Capt. Schott's corps, the former is commanded at present by 
Major Lomaign & the latter by Capt'n Selin. These corps 
will join you at or before you reach Col. Stroud's, at Fort Penn, 
as you will see by their Orders, left open for your persual, & 
which you will have delivered. You must take with you from 
nere all the flour now left in store, and Beef sufficient to carry 
the Detachment thro' to Wyoming; you will receive an ad- 



♦Subsequently increased to five. 

50— Vol. Ill— 5th Ser.

ditional supply of Flour at Col. Stroud's. Take care that each 
corps takes with them the provisions they have respectively 
drawn. You will receive a few Camp Kettles for the Detach- 
ment at Col. Stroud's, and may draw 20 Axes for your Regi- 
ment, 6 for Armand's & 3 for Schott's here. 

"It will take you four days from Col. Stroud's to Wyoming; 
you will, therefore, regulate your Provision accordingly. 
Capt'n Alex'r Patterson, A. D. Q. M., will send express to Col. 
Zebuion Butler, commanding at Wyoming, with notice of your 
Approach. From Fort Penn you will march to Lardner's; 
thence to an Incamping Place in what is Commonly cal'd the 
Great Swamp; the third day to Bullock's, which is within five 
miles of Wyoming Garrison, where for the present you will 
put yourself under Col. Butler's directions. 

"I am thus Particular, as It will be necessary to make easie 
marches in order to reconnoitre the Country well and examine 
every thicket & hollow way, or swamp before you enter it, 
which I desire you may be very particular in doing to prevent 
being Surprised or led into an Ambuscade or attack'd without 
previous knowledge of the Enemy's being near. You will be 
particularly attentive to keep the Body of the Troops com- 
pact. Suffer no straggling on any account; keep a proper ad- 
vance & rear Guard, tho' not at too great a distance, and also 
small parties on your Flanks, observing the same caution. 
Should any enemy appear, you must take care not to advance 
on them precipitately before you know their numbers, or until 
you have sufficiently extended your front to prevent being oui- 
Flanked. 

"By a steddy adherence to the above directions, you will 
have little danger to apprehend — double your attention as you 
approach the Fort. As the badness of the Roads at present 
and the scarcity of horses will prevent your carrying your 
heavy Baggage, you must leave it at Fort Penn with a Guard 
until you have a more favorable opportunity. 

"Relying much on your Steddyness, Industry, Zeal, and 
Activity, I wish you a Good march, and 

"Am sir, your obed't serv't, 

EDW'D HAND. 
"Major DANL. BURCHARDT, German Reg't."

Col. Stephen Moylan was born in Ireland, in 1734. and upon 
the recommendation of John Dickinson, Esq., was placed in 
the commissary department in the army before Boston, in 
1775. On the 5th of June. 1776, Congress elected him quarter- 
master general, with the rank of colonel, which office he 
resigned October 1, 1776. He then raised his cavalry regi- 
ment which was an independent organization, the Officers of 
which were not all from Pennsylvania, but the men were all 
raised in Pennsylvania. — General St. Clair's letter. Archives, 
O. S., vol. vii, page 666. They were enlisted in 1777, their 
term expiring the last of September, 1780, when only eleven 
men were credited as its quota for the war. In the spring of 
1781, its ranks were recruited to eighty men, who went south- 
ward in detachments to join Gen. Wayne. — See correspondence 
in Archives, 0. S., vol. ix, pages 267, 321. For an interesting 
notice of Col. Moylan and Capt. Heard, see Chastelleux's 
Travels, vol. i, pages 142 and 155. Col. Molyan retired at the

FIRST PARTISAN LEGION. 855 



ARMAND'S PARTISAN LEGION, (a.) 



Congress, on the 10th of May, 1777, commissioned Armand, 
colonel, and authorized him to raise a corps of Frenchmen, 
not exceeding two hundred. On the 5th of February, 1779, 
he applied to Congress, and received leave to return to France, 
where he largely recruited his corps, and returned. October 
3, 1780, Congress determined that on the 1st of January, 1781, 
such of the sixteen additional regiments as had not been 
annexed to the line of some particular State, and all the sepa- 
rate light corps of the army, both horse and foot, should be 
reduced except Col. Hazen's regiment. Col. Armand's legion, 
and Major Lee's corps. With the exception of the incorpora- 
tion of Pulaski's legion with it, it therefore remained intact 
until the close of the war. Charles Armand was Marquis de 
la Rouerie, who concealed his rank, combatting an unsuccess- 
ful love, by throwing himself headlong into the channel of 
war. (Lafayette's Memoirs, vol. i, page 119.) He was promi- 
nent in the fight at Red Bank, in 1777, and opposed the Tories 
in West Chester county, New York. Was stationed in Ridg- 
field, Connecticut, in 1779; under Gates in the south; pursued 
Cornwallis to Yorktown; made a brigadier in 1783, on Wash- 
ington's recommendation. He took an active part in the 
scenes of the French revolution, and died in 1793. For more 
extended biographical sketches of Col. Armand, and a brief 
resume of his services, see Rattermann's Deutsche Pionier. vol. 
viii, page 437, and The Penn'a Magazine of History, vol. ii, 
page 1. 

A return among the Hand papers, entitled "Return of the 
Independent Corps of Cavalrie and of Foot, commanded by 
Col. Armand, Minesing, December 28, 1778," gives the strength 
of the corps as follows: 

Light dragoons. Capt. Marckle 19 

" Shaffner 34 

Sigoigne, 23 

" de Bert, 19

PULASKI'S LEGION. 



PENNSYLVANIANS IN PULASKI'S LEGION, (a.) 



By a resolution of Congress, passed the 28th of March, 1778, 
Count Casimir Pulaski was authorized to raise and organize 
a corps of sixty-eight light horse and two hundred foot. This 
was known as Pulaski's Legion, and was recruited chiefly in 
Pennsylvania and Maryland. For extended notices of that 
eminent patriot, reference is made to Spark's American Biog- 
raphy, vol. iv, p. 369-446; and Lossing's Field Book, vol. ii, 
p. 529. According to the Bethlehem Diary, Pulaski arrived 
there on the 16th of April, 1778, and mention is made of him on 
the 18th of May following. It was during this interval that 
the banner, which forms a frontispiece to this volume, was 
made.* For years it was received as a fact that the banner 
has been presented the gallant Pole by the Moravian single 
sisters of Bethlehem, as a token of their gratitude for the pro- 
tection Pulaski had alTorded them, surrounded as they were by 
a rough and uncouth soldiery, but recent investigations go to 
show that the General, on visiting the Sisters' house, saw 
their beatiful embroidery, and that he then ordered them to 
prepare a small cavalry banner for his legion, and that the 
whole transaction was a simple business one. Be this as it 
may, the banner is one of historic interest and value, and the 
truth does not detract from the romantic associations cluster- 
ing around it. When Pulaski fell mortally wounded, before 
Savannah, in the autumn of 1779, Paul Bentalon, of Baltimore, 
one of his captains, was beside him, and was carried with 
him on board the United States brig Wasp, and was with him 
when he died. Pulaski was not buried on land, as Lossing 
says, but, according to Bentalon who was present, was con- 
signed to a watery grave. The banner was secured by Capt. 
Bentalon, and for more than forty years was hid from the 
public eye. It subsequently passed into the possession of the 
Maryland Historical Society, where it now remains. The edi- 
tors are indebted to the Rev. E. A. Dalrymple, D. D., of Balti- 
more, for the following description and present condition of it: 

"The Banner is twenty inches square and was attached to a 
lance when borne on the field. Externally it is of a dingy 
brown on both sides. It is composed of two pieces, and by 
separating them, which is easily done, inasmuch as the sew-

886 CONTINENTAL LINE. 

ing has ripped asunder, the original colors are very readily 
and certainly determined. 1. The ground, or piece of silk 
for both sides, is crimson. 2. The exploding hand grenades 
in the four corners of the banner are bright yellow silk, 
relieved with white, to show distinction in the flames. 3. The 
ball of the eye is light brown; the pupil is dark brown. 4. 
The rays around the eye are bright yellow. 5, The letters are 
yellow and shaded with green, that is the letters are two-thirds 
of bright yellow silk and one-third of green silk; the 'U. S." 
the same. 6. The bordering near the edges of the banner is 
bright yellow and green, exactly like the letters. 7. The fringe 
was of silver, or some white bullion; it is (or was) metallic, 
though now tarnished or dark. 8. The stars are bright yellow." 

As will be seen by reference to the banner, on one side are 
the letters "U. S." and, in a circle around them, the words 
"Unitas Virtus Forcior." "Union makes valor stronger." The 
letter C in the last word is incorrect; it should be a T. On 
the other side, in the center, is the All-seeing Eye, with the 
words "Non Alius Regit." "No other Governs." The poet 
Longfellow has thrown around this banner of Pulaski such 
a charm and beauty, that, were not his verses so wanting in 
historic truth, we should be tempted to quote them. 

With the death of Pulaski, his legion was merged into other 
corps. On the 29th of November, Congress voted a monument 
to the memory of the Polish patriot which was never erected; 
but one was subsequently raised by the citizens of Savannah, 
of which Gen. Lafayette, during his triumphal progress through 
the United States, laid the corner stone.

LEE'S PARTISAN CORPS, (a.) 



Lee's Partisan Legion, so called, was a separate corps of 
cavalry, under the command of the celebrated Maj. Henry 
Lee, of Virginia, the "Light Horse Harry" of the Revolution. 
The legion distinguished itself in the South and was the 
scourge of Tarleton and the loyalists of the Carolinas, serving 
until the close of the war. Dr. Matthew Irvine was the princi- 
pal Pennsylvania officer connected with it, concerning whom, 
in Lee's Memoirs, vol. ii, page 13. there is the following refer- 
ence: 

•'Such was Dr. Skinner's unvarying objection to Irvine's 
custom of risking his life whenever he was with the corps 
going into action; that kind and amiable as he was, he saw 
with pleasure that his prediction, often communicated to Irvine 
to stop his practice (which, contrasted with his own. Skinner 
felt as a bitter reproach), was at length realized when Irvine 
was brought in wounded, and he would not dress his wounds, 
altnough from his station he had the preference, until he had 
finished all the privates; reprehending with asperity Irvine's 
custom, and sarcastically complimenting him every now and 
and then with the honorable scar he might hereafter show."

VON OTTENDORFF'S CORPS. 



BARON DE OTTENDORFF'S CORPS, (a.) 



Arniand's Legion (see record of, iKJStea) was originally 
recr^ted by Baron de Ottendorff as a troop of light infantry, 
but on account of the scarcity of well-disciplined cavalry, it 
changed into a dragoon corps. Nicholas Dietrich, Baron de 
Ottendorff, was a nobleman from Lusatia, Saxony, and had 
served in the "Seven Years' War," as a lieutenant, under 
Frederick the Great. Upon the close of that war, he went 
to Paris, where he associated with Kosciuzko and Roman de 
Lisle. At the breaking out of the Revolution, these three war- 
riors came together to America to assist the colonies in their 
struggle for independence. Kosciuszko entered the staff of 
General Washington. De Lisle was made captain of artillery, 
and Ottendorff, at the request of Gen. Washington, by a reso- 
lution of Congress on |Jovember 8, 1776, was "appointed a 
brevet-captain in the service of the United States." By a 
resolution of the day subsequent, he was "ordered to repair to 
Headquarters, near the Great Plains, and put himself under 
the command of Gen. Washington." On the 5th of December 
following. Congress "directed Capt. Ottendorff to raise an inde- 
pendent corps, consisting of 150 men, sergeants, and corporals 
included; that the same be divided into three companies, the 
first to consist of 60 men, light infantry, to be commanded by 
one captain and two lieutenants; the other two companies 
of hunters, of 4.5 men each, to be commanded each by a cap- 
tain and two lieutenants; that Captain Ottendorff have the 
rank of major, be captain of the light-infantry company, and 
command the whole; that an adjutant be appointed for thla 
corps who is to act as quartermaster and paymaster, with the 
rank of lieutenant and pay of other adjutants." Major Otten- 
dorff began the recruiting with great energy, and in the sprinu' 
of 1777 the complement of the corps was filled. The three 
companies were all raised in Pennsylvania, and continued in 
service until 1780. Of Ottendorff's subsequent career little 
is known. Upon the merging of the corps into Armand's 
Legion, Lieut. Henry Bedkin took command of the first com- 
pany and it is probable Ottendorff had previously left the ser- 
vice and returned to Europe. — (See Ratterman's Pionee.. vol. 
vii, p 449.)

PROVOST GUARD. 9i; 



VON HEER'S LIGHT DRAGOONS, (a.) 



Von Heer's troop was organized under a resolution of Con- 
gress of May 27, 1778, establishing aProvost, to consist of a cap- 
tain, four lieutenants, one clerk, quarter-master sergeant, two 
trumpeters, two sergeants, five corporals, forty-three provosts 
or privates, and four ex-carboniers; they were mounted and ac- 
coutered as light dragoons. A summary of their duties was 
included in orders dated October 10, 1778 (see orderly book, 
postea) ; they were to apprehend deserters, rioters, and strag- 
glers. In battle they were posted in the rear to secure fugu- 
tives. In short, their duties were the usual ones of a provost 
guard, and the corps was styled the Troop of Marechausse. 
Capt. Bartholomew Von Heer resigned from Procter's artil- 
lery to take this command, and in some papers he is styled 
"Provost Marshal of the Continental Army." The men were 
all recruited in Pennsylvania— Washington's letter, Penn'a 
Archives, O. S., ix, page 486. 



ROLL OF CAPTAIN VON HEER'S DRAGOONS, (a.)

Pennsylvania State, and commanded by Capt. Von Heer,

COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF'S GUARD, (a.) 



This corps was organized by Gen. Washington in 177G, while 
the army was at New York, and consisted of a major's com- 
mand, one hundred and eighty men. Caleb Gibbs, of Rhode 
Island, was its first chief, with the title of captain command- 
ant. By an order dated at Valley Forge, March 17, 1778, one 
hundred chosen men were to be annexed to the guard, for the 
purpose of forming a corps "to be instructed in maneuvres 
to be introduced into the array, and to serve as a model for the 
execution of them. As the General's guard is composed of 
Virginians, the one hundred draughts will be taken from the 
troops of other States. Height of men from five feet eight to 
five feet ten; age, from twenty to thirty, and men of estab- 
lished character for sobriety and fidelity. They must be 
American born." — See Stryker's New Jersey Register, page 60, 
for copy of the order. 

In 1779, William Colfax, grandfather of Schuyler Colfax, late 
Vice President of the United States, succeeded Major Gibbs in 
the command. There are two returns in the archives at Har- 
risburg — one by Major Gibbs, and the second made by Capt. 
Colfax. The following list is collated from both. Capt. Col- 
fax's return, dated New Windsor, April 8, 1781, embraces all 
the names except those of John Arundell, John Berry, Thomas 
Blair, Hugh Hagerty, Isaac Howell, and John Pillar. He cer- 
tifies that all on his list are present except William Simmons, 
sick at Norristown. 

For an exhaustive notice of the guard, see Dr. Lossing's 
article in the Historical Magazine, New York, May, 1858.

PENNSYLVANIA ARTILLERY. 943 



CAPT. THOMAS PROCTER'S ARTILLERY COMPANY, (a.) 



Captain Thomas Procter's artillery company originated from 
a resolution of the Committee of Safety, dated October 16, 1775, 
for raising an artillery company, to be placed at Fort Island, 
to consist of one captain, one lieutenant, one drum and fife, and 
twenty-five privates, to serve the Province twelve months, 
unless sooner discharged. On the 27th of October, upon his 
own application, Mr. Thomas Procter was appointed captain. 
On the 3d of November, his company was received into the bar- 
racks at Philadelphia, and furnished with the bedding, "late 
belonging to the Royal artillery company," &c. The rules 
and regulations governing the company, will be found in Co- 
lonial Records, vol. x, page 391. On the 8th of December, 
Capt. Procter, and Lieut. Francis Procter were dismissed the 
service, on account of a difficulty with some officers of Col. 
Bull's battalion, and on the 27th, Lieut. Simonds was put in 
command, and the company ordered to Liberty Island. On 
the 28th, however, Capt. Procter was restored to command. 
Early in April, 1776, the company being stationed on Fort Is- 
land, was increased in number to one hundred and twenty men, 
and on the 14th of August, his force was augmented to two 
hundred men, to be formed into two companies with one com- 
manding officer, with the rank of major, each company to 
have one captain lieutenant and three lieutenants, and Capt. 
Procter was promoted major. On the 5th of October, a detach- 
ment of fifty men under Capt. Strobagh, was ordered to Fort 
Montgomery, Lieut. Procter, of Forrest's company, to ac- 
company. On the 30th of October, 1776, the terms of many 
of the men expired, Maj. Procter was directed to re-enlist 
them for the war, and a bounty of ten dollars was allowed 
therefor. The company remained at Fort Island until about 
the 25th of December, when part of it was ordered over into 
New Jersey, with Capt. Forrest and Lieuts. Duffey and Emes, 
and took part in the capture of the Hessians at Trenton. See 
these letters, Penn'a Archives, 0. S., vol. v, page 142. Maj. 
Procter joined this command, leaving Lieuts. Courtenay and 
Emes in command at Fort Island, and took part in the battle 
of Princeton, where he captured a brass six-pounder, which he 
presented to the State of Pennsylvania. He was joined at 
Morristown on the 16th of January, 1777, by Capt. Strobagh's 



944 CONTINENTAL LINE. 

company. On the 17th, Gen. Knox left for New England, 
leaving Maj. Procter in command of all the Continental artil- 
lery. On the 20th of February, Maj. Procter received news at 
Morristown of the resolution for the establishment of a regi- 
ment of artillery, acd of his appointment to the command.

PENNSYLVANIA ARTILLERY, 961 



PENNSYLVANIA STATE REGIMENT OF ARTILLERY, (a.) 



Procter's artillery regiment, as It was usually denominate^!, 
was a regiment of artillery raised for the defense of the State 
of Pennsylvania, under a resolution of the Council of Safety, 
dated February 6, 1777, to consist of a colonel, lieutenant colo- 
nel, major, eight captains, eight first lieutenants, eight second 
lieutenants, eight lieutenant fire-workers, paymaster, surgeon, 
&c., thirty-two sergeants, thirty-two corporals, eight drum- 
mers, eight fifers, twelve musicians, and four hundred and 
eighty privates. See Col. Records, vol. xi, page 116. By a 
subsequent resolution, February 28, 1777, ibid., page 136, it was 
to serve in any part of the United States during the war. 
Maj. Procter's command, which was its nucleus, was in service, 
and had its first disaster at Bound Brook, New Jersey, April 
13, 1777, where Lieuts. Ferguson and Turnbull were captured, 
with twenty privates and two pieces of artillery. Its next 
disaster was at the battle of Brandywine, where Procter 
bravely maintained his position at Chadd's Ford, until the 
defeat of the right wing forced his retreat, with the loss 
of some guns and ammunition. At Germantown, on the 4th 
of October, 1777, a portion of the regiment was engaged 
under Capt. Lt. Brewer; Lieuts. Barker and Ritter, hav- 
ing charge of the guns. According to William McMullen's 
statement. Barker had a six-pound cannon stationed on the 
main street, nearly opposite Chew's house, " the report of 
which was so sharp, that it caused the blood to run from 
his ears." No regimental returns have been found prior to 
September 3, 1778, when by resolution of Congress, Proc- 
ter's regiment was made part of the quota of troops to be fur- 
nished by the State of Pennsylvania, which was to be credited 
for the men now in the regiment, and also for any that should 
thereafter be recruited therein. From its necessarily detached 
service very little of the history of the regiment has survived; 
but detachments from it were engaged in nearly all of the 
operations of the main army, subsequently notably at Mon- 
mouth and in Sullivan's campaign of 1779. The following 
data are gathered from such returns as were accessible, sup- 
plemented by the correspondence of Capt. Isaac Craig, fur- 
nished by his grandson, Isaac Craig, Esq.. of Allegheny city, 
Penna'a.

Gen. Gates to the Artillery Officers. 

War Office, April 28th, 1778. 

Gentlemen: The Board have been favored with your Cer- 
tificate of yesterday, in Favor of Capt. Coven's Conduct, with 
Regard to you. We are always happy when Enquiries into the 
Characters & Behavior of Officers in the Service of their Coun- 
try, turn out favorable. We deem your testimony fully satis- 
factory as to Capt. Coren, but are sorry any Officers under his 
command are in a Situation to be under the Necessity, by 
any Appearance, "of concealing their Ignorance." Either Mr. 
Coren has not been so communicative as he ought to have been, 
or they have been Inattentive to Matters daily passing before 
them. Perhaps, too, they have been indolent or too much 
above their Business to employ themselves. Manually, in it. 
Practical Arts are not to be learnt by Speculation. No Person, 
in our Opinion, by merely viewing a complex Machine, altho' 
he should attend to its Parts never so minutely, either in the 
whole or by Detail, could at once produce, of his own Manu- 
facture, a similar one. Practice must complete what Specula- 
tion only begins. The Knowledge you have gained, it is ex- 
pected, of the Laboratory Art, as well as your Experience in 
Life, must convince you of the Truth of these general t'osi- 
tions. And as you are sent to obtain a perfect Knowledge of 
the Business, not only on your own account, but to promulgate 
it thro' the States, the Board make no Doubt of your diligently 
& manually applying yourselves to the Task you have under- 
taken. We have too good an Opinion of you all to suppose it 
will be necessary to impress this Sentiment upon you; because 
should there be any who are negligent or averse to being 
taught, the Board are Satisfied, as Men regarding the Interest of 
your Country, you would return to your other Duty, & put some 
other Person in a situation so desirable as that you are now in. 
The time you have been at Carlisle was one Argument with the 
Board, added to their anxiety to have the Laboratory Art more 
generally Known, which induced them to write to Capt. Coren 
on the subject, & we shall be happy to hear, on your Return 
to Camp, as we no Doubt we shall, that the Knowledge you 
have gained by your residence at Carlisle is equal to the Ex- 
pectation formed when the Measure of sending you there was 
adopted. If there is any Inequality in your Acquirements, it 
will be found that those know most who have done most Work. 
The greatest military Characters have thought Nothing too 
minute or too laborious. The great Turenne carried a Musket 



PENNSYLVANIA ARTILLERY. 953 

for a twelve month, and the Czar Peter was not satisfied with 
seeing a ship built, but employed himself as a common labourer 
in the lowest and most laborious Parts of the Business. We 
have, from an anxious Desire that you should gain every possi- 
ble Knowledge of the Laboratory Art, gone farther into this 
Subject than was necessary, more especially as you were se- 
lected by His Excellency General Washington's express Direc- 
tions, as Persons who would diligently attend to the Matter you 
have undertaken. The Board, therefore, can have no Doubt 
but that you wull use every Exertion, as the Eyes of so many 
are upon you. 

I am. with Regard, your obed. Servant,

Instructions to the Artillery. 

Morristown, January 14, 1780. 

Sir: You are to take the direction of two 5% howitzers, and 
four 6-pounders, which are to be taken from the Park. As the 
ammunition for the howitzers is in your possession, you are to 
take the whole of it agreeable to the return you made to me, 
and ten case-shot for each and flannel cartridge must be added. 
If you have no case-shot, Sergt. Briant of the 3d battalion has 
the charge of some, which are in Lieut. Elmer's hns. It must 
be equally divided, and put into two sleds or waggons, or 
tumbrilles if sleds cannot be provided. Each 6-pounder must 
have 70 round-shot fixed, and 20 case, with a full proportion 
of tube, port-fires, &c., also an ax. 

You will have delivered to you some fire-balls for the how- 
itzers, and some bavins or reeds which you will use, if you are 
ordered to set fire to any buildings. There are to be two officers, 
and twenty-two non-commissioned and privates to each piece, 
which is also to have two setts of drag-ropes. You will have 
drawn immediately three days' baked bread and salt provisions, 
and rum. If sleds can be provided, the ammunition waggons 
(one for each piece), are to be placed on them to transport the 
ammunition. 

The cannon also are to be placed on sleds and drawn to the 
place of action, and there taken off, but as soon as the firing 
shall be finished, to be put on again; for which reason the sleds 
must be used as limbers, and put in the charge of a trusty 
sergeant. If this method should not be thought to be the best, 
the horses must be put to the cannon at the place you shall 
receive your further orders from Lord Stirling. Sleds will also 
be provided, if possible to transport the officers and men, in 
order to prevent their being too much fatigued. 

As soon as you have evei-ything in readiness, which must be 
by twelve or one o'clock this day, at farthest, you will proceed 
to Elizabeth Town, and wait on Lord Stirling, who will be 
there, or Gen. Irvine, for further orders.* 

You will easily perceive, by the tenor of these instructions, 
that the service you are going upon is a secret. You must not, 
therefore as you value your reputation as a soldier and a man 
of honor, give the least information, directly or indirectly, 
either to officer, soldier, or any other person, of the place of 
your destination or your suspicion of the service you are going 

*Your march must be so regulated as to be at Elizabeth Town by ten 
or eleven o'clock this night.

upon. If you are asked any questions, you may tell them it 
is expected the enemy are coming out, and you are going upon 
the line to join the troops, to be in readiness to receive them. 

You will inform Lord Stirling or Gen. Irvine that you have 
the combustibles before mentioned. 

It will be highly proper, if there be any public forage at 
Springfield, that you should put some on your sleds to feed 
your horses when you halt.

Board of War to Capt. Craig. 

War Office, April 20, 1780. 

Sir: In answer to your request of this day for sundry matters 
relative to your march to Fort Pitt, we have to inform you — 

Forage is to be obtained in the usual way at the several posts 
by application to the quarter and forage-masters. 

You have herewith an order on the several quarter-masters 
to supply you with the necessary teams and carriages for con- 
veying to Fort Pitt the artillery and stores under your care, 
and a particular order on Col. Davis, at Carlisle, for that pur- 
pose, and the supply of horse shoes and any other articles nec- 
essary for repairing the carriages on the way. 

The eight men of Capt. Coren's company at Carlisle and Fort 
Pitt or other place westward of Philadelphia, you will take 
with you, and cause them to do duty in your company, sub- 
ject, however, to the future orders of the board or of the Com- 
mander-in-Chief. 

As we expect, in a few days, a complete arrangement of the 
artillery, we think it inexpedient, at this time, to issue a com- 
mission to Capt. Lieut. Lloyd. As soon as we get the arrange- 
ment we will make out and transmit his commission. 

We have no money, nor can we get any to defray the ex- 
penses of your march. If Col. Flower, C. G. of U. S., thinks 
it reasonable to make you an allowance for conducting the ar- 



PENNSYLVANIA ARTILLERY. 961 

tillery and stores to Fort Pitt, we shall not object to it; tho 
money so allowed you to be applied in the same manner as if 
given to a conductor of military stores. 

We are, Sir, your most obed't servants. 

By order of ye board, 

TIM'Y PICKERING. 
Capt. Isaac Craig. 



Board of War to Capt. Craig. 

War Office, April 20th, 1780. 

Sir; You, having under your charge a quantity of artillery 
& artillery stores destined for Fort Pitt, all quarter-masters 
and forage-masters on the route are hereby directed to furnish 
you with the necessary forage for your horses, and also with 
horses to replace any that shall fail on the march. We expect 
you will use this order with great prudence & economy, that 
the distresses of the public may not be increased, but in case 
of absolute necessity. 

We are, Sir, y'r obed't Servants, 
By order of ye board,

Orders of the Supreme Executive Council. 

In Council, Philadelphia, April 24th, 1780. 
To all concerned: 

Capt. Craig, ordered by his Excellency Gen'l Washington, to 
Pittsburgh, with artillery and stores, applied to the Council for 
aid and assistance therein; on consideration. 

Ordered, That the Lieutenants, Sub-Lieutenants, Justices of 
the Peace, and others of the respective counties thro' which 
Capt. Craig shall pass, do give him such aid & assistance in 
transporting the said stores & artillery as the occasion may re- 
quire.

Col. Broadhead to Capt. Craig. 

Head Quarters, Fort Pitt, May 13, 1780. 

Sir: It is some weeks since his Excellency, the Commander- 
in-Chief, and the Honorable Board of War wrote me that you 
were ordered to this department with a number of cannon and 
military stores. I am aware of the difficulties you must meet 
with in obtaining carriage, &c., to enable you to proceed ex- 
peditiously, yet as the enemy are very troublesome to the set- 
tlement, and it is becoming highly expedient for me to counter- 
act their designs by some offensive operation, I must request 
you to exert yourself as much as possible to reach this point 
before the 1st of June. It will be very hazardous to come up 
the Pennsylvania road, wherefore you are to come up the 
Virginia road, and if you find that the artillery and stores will 
be too much exposed upon any part of that road, you will halt 
and give me notice, to that a sufficient convoy may be sent you. 
I wish you to send me by the first conveyance a return of your 
strength and of the number and calibres of your ordnance, and 
the quantity of stores you have with you, or expect to be for- 
warded, that in case of deficiency I may make further appli- 
cations. 

I have the honor to be, with respect. 

Your most obed't serv't, 

DANIEL BRODHEAD, 
Colonel Commanding.

ter's regiment with some stores and cannon, were in readiness 
to be sent down as soon as the roads would permit and the 
means of transportation can be procured." — Penn'a Archives.

the artillery officer [Capt. Craig], to hurry up the artillery 
and stores, but I hear he is badly furnished with carriages 
and forage, which must prevent his marching with the expe- 
dition"— lb 234 And June 29, 1780. "The artillery has arrived, 
and the military stores are safely lodged."— lb. 243. 



Orders for Major Craig. 

Fort Pitt, November 11, 1780. 
Sir: I have received intelligpnce, through various channels, 
that the British have established a post at Lower Sandusky, 
and also information that it is suspected they intend erecting 
one at either Cuyahoga creek or Grand river. But as these 
acounts are not from persons of military knowledge, nor to be 
fully relied on in any particular, and I am anxious to have the 
facts well established, you will, therefore, proceed with Lieut. 
Rose, my Aid-de-Camp, and six active men in order to recon- 
noitre these places, particularly Cuyahoga. As your party is 
so small, you will use every possible precaution to avoid of 



S70 CONTINENTAL LINE. 

being discovered, which service I expect you will be able to 
perform, as they will probably be relaxed in discipline at this 
advanced season of the year. When you have reconnoitred 
these posts (if any), you may try to take a prisoner, provided 
you find it can be done without much risque of losing any of 
your party, which must be garded against at all costs, as it is 
not your business to come to action. My reasons for allowing 
you so small a party being to avoid discovery. I know your 
zeal will excite you to go to lengths, perhaps even beyond your 
own judgment, in order to effect the purposes of your excursion. 
But, notwithstanding my earnest desire to obtain accurate 
accounts of the matters mentioned herein, you will please to 
keep in view that I am extremely solicitous that every man 
may be brought back safe, and that one man falling into the 
hands of the enemy, may not only ruin your whole present 
business, but also prevent future discoverys. 

As it may become necessary for you to detach or separate 
from Mr. Rose, it will be proper for you to give him a certified 
copy of this order. 

I am, sir, your obedient humble servant, 

WM. IRVINE, 
B. General. 

Major Craig. 



Gen. Washington to Capt. Craig. 

Head-Quarters, New Windsor, April 25th, 1781. 

Sir: I have received your favor of the 15th. The present 
State of Col. Proctor's Regiment does not admit of your Com- 
pany's being made up to its full complement, but I have, by 
this conveyance, desired General St. Clair to let you have as 
many men as will put you on a level with the others. This is 
all that can be done. I have already desired the Board of War 
to send six Artificers to Fort Pitt; you may wait upon them 
yourself with this Letter, and ask three or four more if they 
can be spared. I would wish the enclosed for Gen'l Clarke and 
Col. Brodhead, to reach them as speedily as possible; you will 
be pleased to take charge of them your.'^elf. if you do not meet 
with a good opportunity previous to the time you intend set- 
ting out. 

I am, Sir, Your Humble servant, 

GO WASHINGTON. 
To Capt. Craig. 



PENNSYLVANIA ARTILLERY. 971 

From a return, dated March 22, 1782, signed by Andrew Por- 
ter, major commanding Pennsylvania regiment of artillery, 
there were stationed at Lancaster and Carlisle, two majors, five 
captains, four captain leutenants, two first lieutenants, pay- 
master, quarter-master, surgeon, two cadets, one surgeon's 
mate, quarter-master sergeant, drum major, fife major, four 
musicians, four sergeants, three corporals, one bombardier, six 
gunners, seven drums and fifes, twenty-five matrosses; total, 
seventy. At Fort Pitt, two captains, one second lieutenant, 
&c.; total, thirty-four. In the Southern army, two captains 
four captain lieutenants, one second lieutenant, adjutant, non 
commissioned officers and privates, one hundred and twenty 
one; making total strength of the regiment two hundred and 
thirty-five. 

The return from Fort Pitt is dated July 26, 1782; the return 
from the Southern army, November 10, 1781. 

After the surrender of Cornwallis, three companies of the 
artillery were detached to the Southern army, under Gen. 
Greene. A return, found amoBg the Hand papers, dated at 
James Island, S. C, January 31, 1783, indicates the strength 
of this detachment as follows: 

Capt. Ferguson's company, 21 

Brice's company, 14 

McClure's company, 25 

In June, 1784, when Congress called for a regiment partially 
infantry and artillery, Pennsylvania immediately furnished 
its quota, and on the 13th of August, Thomas Douglass was 
appointed captain, and Joseph Ashton, lieutenant of the ar- 
tillery company, by the Suprame Executive Council of Penn- 
sylvania, ihe following year, Capt. Thomas Douglass was 
dropped, and Capt. William Ferguson superseded him. Oc- 
tober 20, 1788, apparently upon a claim of rank. (Col. Records, 
vol. xiv, page 559 and 621), which gives some ground for the 
claim made by the descendants of Major William Ferguson, 
that he was never out of the service of his country from ihe 
day he entered the ranks as a private of Procter's First com- 
pany of Pennsylvania artillery, until as commandant of ar- 
tillery of Gen. St. Clair's army, he fell by his guns in the dis- 
astrous battle of November 4, 1791. 

According to Prof. Asa Bird Gardner's letter to the Editors 
the artillery of Lieut. Col. Harmar's "1st American Regiment 
was organized into a battalion by itself; in 1786, two new com- 
panies from Massachusetts added, and Capts. Douglass' or 
Ferguson's company is still in existence as the Second Com- 
pany of Artillery of the present United States Army."
