Narrative

"I, Ebenezer Fletcher, enlisted into the Continental Army, in Capt. Carr’s Company, in Col. Nathan Hales’s Regiment,
as a fifer, and joined the Army at Ticonderoga, under the command of Gen. St. Clair, in the spring of 1777,
at which place I was stationed till the retreat of the Army on the 6th of July following.

Early on the morning of the same day, orders came to strike our tents and swing our packs.
It was generally conjectured that we were going to battle; but orders came immediately to march."

He was fond of singing, and at church he usually sat with the choir.  He was an exemplary professor of religion, and
was noted for his industry, and his strict integrity.

....we would state that the narrative, written by himself, of his adventures during the Revolutionary war, was originally
published in the year 1813.
