|the site was giving me trouble so I came back here.
Vicki: The flyer on the Battle at Cowpens arrived to day & was very interesting reading. I went over information of my ancestor's brother & it does not say for which side he fought. I was going on the information about exchanged prisoners of war. My ancestor was married shortly after he returned home, which would give him the idea of staying there. He enlisted for 2 months during the battle of 1812 & I would guess he was on guard duty rather than being active. He was 18 during the battle of Trenton.
If your husband has a picture of the American dead' look for Nathan Hoyt. If his name is not there, he would have fought on the British side. I think that was one of the reasons he would be given parole from the NY prison. If British It would probably be the 'Legion Cavalry'? I can't see the British Army regiments welcoming any 'colonials.'
I also enjoyed the cocker spaniel sticker on the envelope. Watched the tennis this afternoon. So sorry that Serena Williams lost the match.
