He was one of about 30 that was taken prisoner and was held a prisoner for about three months on the English ship Jersey when he was exchanged still wearing the same clothes that he wore when captured.
He was living on Fort Hill at the time of the battle of Fort Griswold and on hearing the alarm of the minute guns he took his flintlock gun and joined the men in the fort.
