“The ball first cut off the head of Smith, a
stout heavy man, and dashed it open, then
took Taylor across the bowels; it then struck
Sergeant Garret of our company on the hip,
took off the point of the hip bone . Oh, What a
sight it was to see within a distance of six
rods those men with their legs and arms and
guns and packs all in a heap!”
Connecticut Soldier, 1777
