General Israel Putnam (1718-1779)
Putnam's Own Account of His Historic Ride
"We discharged some old field pieces, which were there, a few times, and gave them a small fire of musketry, but without any considerable effect; the superior force of the enemy soon obliged our small detachment to abandon the place. I therefore directed the troops to retire and form on a hill a little distance from Horseneck (Greenwich), while I proceeded to Stamford and collected a body of militia and a few Continental troops which were there, with which I returned immediately."
