Script Details

September 11th, 1777.

The cannonading began in the morning. At the upper ford, the enemy sent a great part of their force about noon. Three divisions of our Army were sent immediately to oppose them. The batteries at the middle ford opened upon each other with such fury. As if the elements had been in convulsions, the valley was filled with smoke. For an hour and a half this horrid sport continued, and about sunset I saw a column of the enemy advance to one of our batteries and take it.

What we lost at our batteries I have not yet heard. An engagement began with musketry, and the enemy gave way. But as night was spreading its dusky shade through the gloomy valley, and our Army was something broke. It was necessary to leave the field of action and take care of the troops.

The sun was set when I left the hill from whence I saw the fate of the day. His Excellency George Washington I saw within 200 yards of the enemy, with but a small party about him. Our Army broke at the right, and night coming on, adding a gloom to our misfortunes.
Amidst the noise of cannon, the hurry of people, and wagons driving in confusion from the field, I came off with a heart full of distress. In painful anxiety I took with hasty step the gloomy path from the field, and traveled 15 miles to Chester.
