On this day

On this day in 1777, Lieutenant Thomas Blake, the First New Hampshire Regiment, reported that “the army now all lived in huts made of boards that we had collected; as we had no tents since we left Ticonderoga, we were ordered to take down our huts and raft the boards in the river; in the mean while the wagons were moving the stores down to Fort Miller; after the boards and stores were gone the army marched, but the enemy watching our motion, and seeing us on the retreat, fell on our rear with their Indians, killing and wounding a number; we marched as far as Fort Edward”; in 1837, Emmor Potter (b. 13 July 1767) passed away, he was a mason by trade and a tenant of General Philip Schuyler; in 1857, RN Atwell & Co ceased publishing the Battle Ground Herald in Schuylerville after four years.
