October 30, 2019 at 09:00AM Happy birthday to our own Col. John Bailey. Born on Oct 30th, 1730, he was the colonel of the 2nd Massachusetts Regiment from their inception in 1777. You will be remembered sir, and never forgotten. Huzza!
The enemy’s shot cut us up. I saw five artillerists belonging to one gun cut down by a single shot, and I saw men who were stooping to be protected by the works; but not stooping low enough, split like fish to be broiled.” Joseph Martin #revolutionarywar… ift.tt/2pTi7hLpic.twitter.com/ayVUsBFtcL
