detached by General Burgoyne had been defeated by the troops
under General Stark, at the famous Bennington Battle, August
16, 1777, and the danger of serious disaster had been averted.
But the main army of Burgoyne was still advancing. The vol-
unteers had made no preparation for long service, and soon re-
turned home. In this emergency, fresh levies of troops were
necessary for the public defence. The order of General Warner
to the commander of a regiment in his brigade has escaped de-
struction, and remains on file in the Massachusetts Archives,
cxcviii. 127 : —

" Bennington, August 25, 1777. Sir, With grateful acknowl-
edgments of your forwardness in turning out men for the assist-
ance of the Army in the late alarming crisis, wherein we have
been favored with a surprising victory, but as the enemy are re-
pulsed, and the men who came on the alarm cannot be prevailed
with to tarry till the last of November, I am to direct you to see
that every sixth man in your Regiment, agreeable to the Resolves
of the General Court, be detailed and with all possible despatch
marched to join my Brigade in the Northern Army, now stationed
at this place, as those that turned out as volunteers are not pre-
pared to tarry so long, and it is very necessary that the General
Officers should know what number of men they have to depend
on, in order to plan proper measures for the further repelling of
the enemy. Therefore said Order of Court must be immediately
complied with. I am, Sir, yours &c., JoNf Waener, B. G.
You will form the men detached from your Regiment into Com-
panies, as near as may be to Order of Court, and appoint proper
Officers to command the same, and order them to march with all
possible despatch. To Col. Abijah Stearns."

Nathan Leonard, one of the " minute-men," commanded a com-
pany composed of Worcester County men, through the campaign
from January 18, 1778 to January 1, 1779. The Hardwick
names were : —

Nathan Leonard, Captain. John Thayer.

John Harris, Sergeant. Samuel Thayer.

Josiah Green. Moses Winchester.
Andrew Haskell.

Daniel Shays, afterwards so conspicuous in the Insurrection in
1786, commanded a company during the campaign of 1778.
Although he was not a resident in Hardwick,^ I give him a place

here, as the influence which he gained over his men at this time
may account for the adherence of some of them to him after-
wards. His muster roll, dated Albany, February 9, 1778, con-
tains eight Hardwick names : — ,



Daniel Shays, Captain.
Edward Chaloner, Ensign.
John Wheeler, Sergeant.^
John Plant, Corporal.
Shubael Wilder, Drummer.



Moses Doty, Fifer.
Joseph Hunt.
Elisha Pike.
Henry Rixford.



" A Pay Roll of Capt. Timothy Paige's Company, in Col° John
Rand's Regiment of Massachusetts Militia, raised for the defence
of the United States, agreeable to a Resolve of the Great and
General Court, bearing date June 22, 1780 ; raised for three
months, and did duty at West Point in the State of New York."
This company, which commenced service July 5, 1780, consisted
of one hundred and two men, of wliom thirty were residents in
Hardwick : —



Timothy Paige, Captain.
Israel fLawton, Sergeant.
Israel Aiken.
John Aiken.

Many of the before-named soldiers served at other times, under
other commanders ; but I forbear the repetition of their names.
Besides these were others, who performed one or more terms of
service, under captains who were not resident in Hardwick, to
wit : —



1 John Wheeler was promoted to the the close of the campaign, and in 1786
oflBce of quartermaster-sergeant before was aide-de-camp to General Shays.

To these may not improperly be added the names of Sylvanus
Brimhall, Jeremiah Campbell, Adonijah Dennis, Theophilus Hast-
ings, and Captain Zenas Phinney, who rendered service while
residing elsewhere, and afterwards removed to Hardwick, where,
in their old age, they were enrolled as pensioners. Captain
Daniel Egery, of Dartmouth, and Captain Israel Trow, of Nor-
ton, each commanded a company during one or more campaigns,
but spent their last days here.

Among the large number of soldiers furnished by this town,
it must be supposed that some were killed, and that others lost
their health, or suffered other casualties. But the Muster Rolls,
unlike those of the French War, are almost entirely destitute of
information in this regard. There is preserved, however, in the
Massachusetts Archives, clxxxiii. 405, a petition in regard to
a minor casualty, which may deserve insertion, as it exhibits the
character of a private soldier's outfit : —

" To the Hon. the Council and House of Representatives of
the State of the Massachusetts Bay. The petition of the sub-
scriber humbly sheweth, that your petitioner, being a soldier in
Capt. Warner's Company in Col. Holman's Regiment, when our
troops retreated out of New York, A. D. 1776, and being on
guard when the retreat began, your petitioner lost his pack, con-
taining the following articles, viz. : —

One knapsack, @ 4s. One straight bodied all wool ]
coat, @ 60s. j

One jacket of broadcloth, lined with shalloon, @ 40s.
One pair of long woollen trowsers, @ 8s.
One blanket, @ 20s. 2 pair stockings, @ 6s.
One pair checked woollen shirts, @ 22s.

280 HISTORY OF HARDWICK.

These are, therefore, to pray the Honorable Court that the above
account may be allowed, and your petitioner, as in duty bound,
will ever pray. Shearjashub Goodspeed.

" Hardwicke, Feb. 9, 1778."

A large majority of the inhabitants of Hardwick were po-
litically opposed to the War of 1812, and no action in its favor
by the town is found on record. Personally, I remember that in
consequence of a military requisition, there was an assembly of
the militia in the spacious meeting-house, at which Major Thomas
Wheeler presided. I was one of the excited group of boys who
occupied the gallery, and witnessed the proceedings with intense
interest. Although opposed to the war, Major Wheeler, as a
good soldier, obeyed oi'ders, and earnestly exhorted the soldiers to
volunteer for the public service. At the close of his speech, he
ordered a drummer to pass through the aisles, and invited volun-
teers to " fall in." But, according to the best of my recollection,
only one soldier responded. Convers Cutler, Jr., followed the
drummer on his noisy march round and round the house many
times, but in vain. The attempt to procure volunteers was
abandoned, and resort was had to the draft. Of those thus com-
pelled to enter the army I remember only one, Jonathan Warner,
Jr., son of my father's nearest neighbor. He returned safely
after a short service, and subsequently removed to Hardwick,
Vt., where he died in a good old age. Among the Hardwick
soldiers in that war should be included Jacob D. Rand, a native
of Charlestown, who resided here several years about the com-
mencement of this century. Before the war, he enlisted as a
soldier in the United States army, in which capacity he served
until the surrender of General Hull, at Detroit, which act he al-
ways regarded as cowardly, if not treacherous, and could never
speak of it except in language of indignation. After he was lib-
erated, either by exchange or parole, he returned here, resumed
business as a cabinet maker, and died October 8, 1840, aged 63.

A few weeks after the declaration of war, the Fourth of July
was celebrated here by an oration in the densely-packed meeting-
house, and a dinner and toasts under a bower on the Common.
The orator was the Rev. Festus Foster, of Petersham, who
sharply arraigned the Democratic party, represented by its great
leader, Jefferson, and his successor, Madison, as responsible for the
quarrel with England, which had resulted in war, — as he alleged
under the influence and for the special interest of France. After



MILITARY HISTORY. 281

extolling the administration of Washington and Adams, the ora-
tor proceeded to denounce the measures adopted by the oppos-
ing party : —

" Mr. Jefferson's accession to the Presidency formed a new era
in our political history. . . . That system of policy under which
our nation had enjoyed unparalleled prosperity was discarded for
the abortive expei'iments of a visionary philosophy. The internal
taxes, which were laid to augment our naval establishment, were
suddenly repealed, and our ships dismantled and abandoned. For
our new philosophers considered a navy worse than useless ; and
a full treasury, lest it should tempt the cupidity of foreign na-
tions, and involve us in war. . . . European nations smiled at
our folly, and seized our defenceless commerce. Our merchants
petitioned to government for protection ; our government re-
monstrated to the belligerents, who knew our weakness, and were
insulted. Under the pretext of avenging our wrongs and insults,
our whole commerce was suddenly annihilated ; many of our
merchants made bankrupts ; our seamen made to beg their bread
or flee their country ; and the whole community made poor in the
midst of plenty. That a measure, which injured us more than
all other nations, should be adopted and persevered in by our
government, against the loud remonstrances of half the nation,
is a mystery which yet remains to be explained, unless the hand
of Napoleon was there. . . . The Embargo was not only ap-
proved by France after it was laid, but it was known in Paris
that such a measure was about to be adopted, before Mr. Jeffer-
son recommended it to Congress. Can any one who impartially
views these facts doubt for a moment who originated and imposed
upon us that destructive system ? Do you wish to know who has
annihilated neutral commerce, and barred you from the ocean ?
Ask France. Do you wish to know why the importation of
British goods into these United States has been prohibited by
law ? Ask France. Do you wish to know why and by whom
you have been driven into a war with England ? Ask France.
Her continental system has become the basis of our maiitime
law. The Embargo, under which we so long groaned and now
groan, is her offspring. She dictates to us with whom we shall
make peace, with whom war. We bow submissively to her im-
perious mandates, and yet contend that we are free."

The toasts, which followed the dinner, exhibit a similar parti-
san spirit : ^ —

^ None of them, however, are quite so spicy as one which is said to have been



282 HISTORY OF HARDWICK.

" The day we celebrate : It dissolved our union with Britain ;
may it never witness our alliance with France. — The memory
of Washington : Had not our rulers set at nought his counsels,
we had been at peace. — James Madison : It is not the most dis-
tinguishing trait in his character, that he does wrong by design,
but that he should never do right by mistake. — His late Excel-
lency Elbridge Gerry : Charity hopeth all things ; we therefore say
to the proscriptions and outrages of his last year's administration,
his poverty, and not his will, consented. — His Excellency Caleb
Strong : At the call of his countrymen, he comes like Cincinna-
tus, from the sweets of retirement to correct the abuses of a mal-
administration, and restore to the people their equal rights. —
The Hon. Timothy Pickering : A real patriot, ever faithful in
declaring those stubborn facts which Democrats dread to hear.
— Massachusetts : The first to resist the encroachments of foreign
despotism, — may she be the last to submit to the usurpation of
a domestic faction. — Thomas Jefferson : He found our govern-
ment ' in the full tide of successful experiment ; ' he left it ebb-
ing to the common vortex of Republics. . . . The projected con-
quest of Canada : The feats of Don Quixote shall no longer
excite laughter, nor his character want a parallel. . . . JNIodern
Democracy : it has bruised our heel ; let the next presidential
election break its head. — The United States of America : may
they remember from whence they have fallen, repent, and do
their first works." One volunteer toast may pi-operly be ap-
pended, concerning the "projected conquest of Canada," which,
if not strictly decorous, was at least pointed and suggestive :
President Madison : With both his feet in one stocking, and a
Canada thistle in his small-clothes."

Such is only a faint reflection of the intense political heat
which was manifested by both Federalists and Democrats, before
and during the War of 1812. Within the next ten years it sub-
sided entirely, and was succeeded by what was styled " The Era
of Good Feeling."

Far different was the public sentiment at the commencement
of the War of the Rebellion in 1861, and during its continuance
until 1865. With scarcely any exceptions, the inhabitants of
Hardwick, without distinction of party, ralUed to the support of

the government, and promptly responded to all requisitions for
men and money. Side by side, and with equal patriotic ardor,
Republicans and Democrats marched to the frontiers, where they
rendered faithful service, and some of them sacrificed their lives
on their country's altar. The following list, gathered from the
Adjutant General's official " Record of the Massachusetts Volun-
teers," probably embraces the names of nearly all the soldiers fur-
nished by this town in the Massachusetts Line.
