The Reverend James Caldwell and the Battles of Springfield and Connecticut Farms

Hannah Caldwell, the Reverend’s wife, “with a babe of eight months, and one of three years old, with the housekeeper and a little maid, were left. Mrs. Caldwell having dressed herself, and put her house in order, retired into a back room[….]One of the barbarians advancing around the house, took the advantage of a small space, through which the room was accessable [sic], and fired two balls into that amiable lady, so well directed that they ended her life in a moment.”
