13th Continental Regt
To Arms! To Arms! The
year is 1779 and the quite of the New England countryside has been disturbed
by the martial sound of British Regulars marching through the towns
of southeastern New England. The recent withdrawal of American Forces
from the town of Newport and the surrounding countryside has emboldened
the British garrison stationed there. In an effort to follow up on his
victory during that engagement and in order to gather supplies for the
British garrison of Newport, Gen'l Pigot is leading an expedition into
The British column left Newport some 4 days past
and has made significant progress in this latest incursion upon the
liberties of New England. Local militia forces have rallied to the alarm
while General Sullivan is marching with a force of his Continentals
and even some of our recent acquired French allies. General Sullivan
has called for all available forces to converge at Redway Plain just
outside the small village of Rehoboth that the British column must pass
on their march.
Come all brave heroes and join General Sullivan as
we prepare to defend our liberties upon Redway Plain!
