Captain Jacob Allen of the Twenty Third Massachusetts Continental Army
Extensively researched, this book chronicles the military career of Jacob Allen during the Revolutionary War from his enlistment on April 19th, 1775 through his death during the Battle of Freeman's Farm on September 19th, 1777.
Beautifully written, Jacob's experiences are relived through descriptions of the travel, camp conditions, and battles that he would have experienced as a soldier. Ample documentation is given showing where Jacob was, and when. The text contains many maps and illustrations, numerous references, copies of source documents, and a full index.
Jacob was born in Bridgewater, Massachusetts to Jacob and Abigail (Kingman) Allen on April 4, 1739. He married Abigail Bailey in 1762 and died in Stillwater, New York in 1777. Some of his descendants today still live in the town that Jacob called home over two hundred and fifty years ago.
