marched into New Haven on the Westville road. Tliev were
galled by militia, and seem to have been wantonly crnel. Dr.
Daggett, then President of Yale, was taken prisoner. In his
affidavit, he states he was wounded several times after his com-
plete surrender. The number of Americans killed was twenty-
seven, and wounded nineteen, the great number of killed being
explained by many of them, already wounded, being killed with
bayonets. Among the killed was this John Baldwin, of Branford.

appearing in that record. I find a Lois Moss, dan. Solomon, b.
