Isaac played a pivitol role in the storming of Stoney Point as follows: while struggling to remove defense branches for the invading troops of which he was a part, General Wayne seized Isaac by the seat and collar, and threw him over the abatis. He was thus able to clear a path for his fellow soldiers. Isaac also served at Valley Forge and Brandywine. He was taken prisoner at Ft. Washington in 1776, was imprisoned in the New York City Church prison, and in the Grosvenor ship prison from which he escaped.
