Windsor in the American Revolution
The following was extracted by Aldrich from the historical address given by Rev. Dr. Cutting, delivered upon the occasion of the Windsor centennial celebration July 4, 1876.
" The military history of Windsor belongs among the essential themes of this day. The fame of Seth Warner's regiment was shared by men of this town. After the battles of Lexington and Bunker Hill, after the capture of Ticonderoga by Allen, Captain John Grant of that regiment came in the summer of 1775 to Windsor for recruits. Among those who enlisted under him were Asahel Smith, John Heath, Zenas Lull, Joshua Slayton, and William Hunter, the last enlisting as a sergeant, and becoming the orderly of the company. Laying down their sickles, -for an old narrative says it was "reaping time"- they proceeded to join their regiment at Crown Point, and descending the Lake to Canada, took part in the brilliant operations which reulted in the capture of St. John's and Montreal, and in the flight of Carlton to Quebec. Young Hunter, then twenty-one years of age, was attached to the person of General Montgomery, and for his good conduct at the seige of St. John's received a commission as first lieutenant. The time for which men had enlisted having expired, Hunter came back to Windsor in December of that year for recruits. There were already militia companies in town, and there is a record of the drill of one of them by Lieutenant Hunter after his return at that time. His mission was successful. Early in January, 1776, on the broad eastern slope of "the Hill", of West Parish, then at the house of Samuel Root, Hunter mustered his recruits, of whom are preserved the names of Ebenezer Hoisington, Phineas Killman, John Heath, Joel Butler, Asa Smead,*** Jonathan Hodgman***, and an 'elderly man named Emmons.' These, with perhaps as many more, he marched away on snow-shoes to Skenesborough, now Whitehall, whence descending the lake on the ice, they reached the army destined to Quebec, and finally encamped on the Plains of Abraham. In the diastrous retreat of the ensuing spring, Warner's regiment was the last on the field, and kept the rear. It was on this retreat that Lieutenant Hunter, discovering a sick Cornish soldier who had laid down to die, inspired with the despairing man heart, and lifting him on his back, carried him three miles to the bateaux and saved his life. During the remainder of the war the militia of Windsor were pertpetually on the alert, and were frequently called into service. Under Captian Benjamin wait and Joab Hoisington they were of the troops who kept back the English and Indians from the northern towns, and when Royalton was attacked and burned, marched in such numbers as to repel and punish the invasion, that most of the woman of Windsor, left unprotected, fled with their children to Cornish until the return of the men. Declining a captaincy in the Continental service, Hunter became lieutenant of the Windsor company, under Captain Samuel Stow Savage, and succeeded him as captain in the year 1789."
