Hannah Caldwell - Murdered by the British during the Revolutionary War.

Script Details

I was born Hannah Ogden in Newark and in 1763 married Rev. James Caldwell, minister of the First Presbyterian Church in Elizabethtown. When the Revolution broke out James played an active role in the protests against the acts of Parliament and then in the movement for independence. He lifted no weapon but his voice. His zeal rendered him obnoxious to the British, who placed a price on his head. On account of raids by enemy troops, he was compelled to flee our home, for a temporary refuge in Springfield. The deserted parsonage and his church were used as a hospital for the sick and wounded of the American army. When General Washington retreated across New Jersey with the British in hot pursuit, many residents of Elizabethtown fled and James sent me and the children to New Providence for two months. After the British left New Jersey in 1777 raiding parties continued to terrorize residents, so in 1780 James decided to move our family five miles northwest to Connecticut Farms.

During that terrible winter near Morristown, many soldiers left the army and on June 6 British troops from New York landed at Elizabethtown planning to march towards Morristown. American troops retreated from Elizabethtown to Connecticut Farms. James packed up our older children to take them to safety, but I remained in our house with our two younger children, our nurse and a female friend. I locked the five of us in a small bedroom with only one window. During the battle a British soldier passed by the bedroom window, aimed his gun and fired a double shotted musket through the window, killing me instantly. The Patriot cause was energized as word of my murder spread and I became another symbol for the fight for independence. In November 1781, tragedy struck our family again when James was inexplicably shot to death by an American soldier.
