Pulaskis legion

As the men of Batsto grouped together and some headed out to joint forces at Chestnut neck while others stayed to protect the town the women all gathered together in the mansion to figure out what they could do.
 Sarah and even her grandmother did learn to shoot they would have to be ready because even the British had scouts and they could come to the village.  Sarah did get Caleb alone and told him be careful and that she cared about him. Caleb was a bit shocked and told her, "You should not talk of such things we can never be and you know that". "Out here no one would care if we  were married we could be happy". said Sarah. Now Caleb did know he loved her too much to have her live a life of never being able to sell her art and even going to church.
"No Sarah this can never happen and I we will not speak of this again".  Caleb left in a hurry telling his sister to stay here and not follow and hugging his mother and promised all he would be back soon. J…

The battle of chestnut neck

The men of Batsto were gathering their weapons and meeting they plan to march to Chestnut neck and help the locals  defend the area. One of the privateers had ridden into Batsto first visiting the men at the forks warning them.


Sarah was busy taking things to a cart so they could hide them in the woods . Esther of course wanted to go with the men.  When they were busy in the mansion they found a diary that was written by Charles and the shocking details were so upsetting for Sarah  she could even tell the others around her what she read.

 It stated that about a year before when he had meet John Andre for the first time he wanted to find out all the spies in the area their were rumors that her father was one along with several Merchants in Philadelphia. They had decided that John would make it a point to get to know all the in-married ladies in the area . They knew of her and her friend Dolly Payne .


Since the British had control of Philadelphia at the time  they were putting on the p…

The battle of chestnut neck

As our group was deciding to leave riders came into the area from the governor letting the people they must get ready 9 ships  were on the way  to chestnut neck. Now the men from Batsto knew that the town was a shipping port and they would bring the stolen ships from the British there and send the supplies over to the Delaware where barges like the one Sarah came on to Valley forge where Washington was camped.

Sarah was not sure if she wanted to go back to Batsto she had no idea where she and her family would be safe. So  the women of the family decided to go back with them to Batsto but only her grandmother decided to go her uncles wives wanted to stay with their husbands.


 Sarah was a bit nervous on the way back to Batsto  she had no idea what she would find would Charles be there or worse John Andre.

  Finally as they entered the town John and Caleb saw there mother looking out the window with a worried look. She helped them in-load their bags and wanted to speak to her sons righ…

The battle of chestnut neck and how they almost got to Batsto

Image
Caleb was angry with his sister he hissed at her" where have you been?' Esther started to talk but he said " Quiet I will talk to you tomorrow  go to bed". Esther went and got into to bed quickly she had a lot to think about but she was concerned about the village and what could happen to it. She wanted to go knock on her brother's door and tell him what was going on they needed to get back to Batsto Sarah could come back later or stay  her job was done but there home could be in danger.
Caleb went back into the room he was sharing with John  he was deeply concerned about his sister and did not like what she was doing and wondered who she was hanging around. He hoped that is was not John Muller because he and his gang were not good news. The locals leave them alone they are privateers and have their own rules and he just did not trust them that much.
John was awake when Caleb entered the room " What's wrong', he asked"?  "Esther was out …

Privateers and how they helped shape amercia.

Image
Side note- Privateers were very important to the Revolutionary war. They would help  defeat the strongest Navy in the war at that time The British Navy.  The continental  congress even had rules of contact for the privateers and they had to post monetary bonds. The way this was done was quite amazing actually they would bluff their opponent  to give up with out firing a shoot.

Sometimes they would fight and people were killed on both sides. The American privateers stole 18 million dollars  worth of British supplies. The town of chestnut neck was a privateer's lair and the British were trying to stop the flow of supplies getting to the armies of America. At the time Washington was in valley Force and needed the supplies.  The small army of British had a very hard time in October when they tried sneaking into the harbor at chestnut neck.


They were trying to get to our favorite town Batsto because they were making cannon balls and other items for the American forces. They did get to…

The visit to Tuckerton( clamtown)?

Image
Not far from her grandmother's home Sarah and the group were surprised to see so many ships in the harbor at Tuckerton know at the time as Clam town. Esther had been here before she would sneak up here with Joe Muller and his gang from the forks seeing what British ships were in the area. 
The privateers did not have a problem with telling other privateers where the British were in the open sea they knew they might need them if they were under attack one day.  Esther knew her brothers would be shocked at what she was doing funny thing if she saw any British she would be wearing her Indian buckskins and they would not pay any attention to her and would even talk freely.

 She learned of many things to help the colonial forces just because they ignored Indians it really worked well for them. She would sneak out tonight after everyone went to bed and meet up with Joe Muller and the gang.  They always keep a watchful eye on her when she would approach the British ready to jump in and …
