TOWN OF DANVERS. 97

Newbury were attacked, and in 1<>98 a destructive assault was made
on Haverhill.

The next of the series is known as Queen Anne's War. 1702-13.
The French and Indians destroyed Deerfield and the Colonies re-
captured Port Royal, which was re-named Annapolis. An expe-
dition against Quebec ended in disaster. Eight men from the
Village were impressed to help man the "Flying Horse," of Salem.

The rolls of this war contain Danvers names, but as Danvers was
then a part of Salem it is impossible to glean with accuracy. Most
of the men recorded below, it will be seen, are enrolled after 1710.

On the 3rd July, 1706, a garrison was stormed at Dunstable, and
Holyoke, son of Edward Putnam of Salem Village, was killed, as
well as three other soldiers, and on the 29th Aug., 1708 the French
and Indians destroyed Haverhill. Upon this alarm the military
companies of Salem, including a company of foot and troop of
horse from the village hastened to the rescue of the inhabitants
and pursued the flying Indians for some distance. Rev. Joseph
Green, pastor of the church, seized his gun and joined with his
parishioners in the pursuit.

King George's war, 1744-48 is chiefly remarkable for the cap-
ture of the famous French stronghold of Louisburg, by Sir Wil-
liam Pepperrell, whose name was well known in Danvers. The
capture of this fort was by a land force wholly of New Englanders,
but unfortunately the rolls are not complete and such men as went
from Danvers are credited to Salem.

The last war of the series usually called the French and Indian
War, 1754-63, is the one chiefly with which these records have to
do as the armies raised were the largest so far attempted and the
drafting from militia regiments was accurately recorded. Thus
we have a source of information extremely valuable, making it
possible to give definite information concerning the men of
Danvers who served in the French Wars. The individual records
will be found, alphabetically arranged under the head of " French
War Soldiers."

The following summary of events by years will enable the
reader to see about what service the various soldiers were engaged
in.

1755.

The expedition against the French forts in Nova Scotia
was successful. One of the results was the eviction and transpor-
tation of 7,000 Arcadians from their home to the colonies. About
1,000 of these unfortunate people were settled in Massachusetts.

Two thousand Provincials under John Winslow and Gen. Monck-
ton of the British army took part in this expedition. The same year
3,000 men mostly fromMassachusetts andConnecticut and some from
New Hampshire under the command of Sir William Johnson were
engaged about Lake George. The battle of the 8th of September
near Fort Edward resulted in the rout of the French and the capture

their commander, Dieskau. Col. Ephraim Webb of Massachusetts
was killed.

Further west Gov. Shirley, with a force composed of his own and
Sir William Pepperell's regiment, unsuccessfully attempted to
capture Fort Niagara on Lake Ontario. The troops returned and
went into winter quarters at Albany.

1756.
Gen. Winslow led an expedition against the French at Lake
George. This expedition accomplished nothing. Lord Loudoun
succeeded Shirley in command in July, 1755.

1757.

Loudoun got as far as Halifax in an expedition against Louis-
burg. Montcalm, the French leader, captured Fort William
Henry, the 9th of Aug., commanded by Col. Monroe. Two thou-
sand men surrendered. Many Danvers men, it will be seen, were
there. A horrid massacre was attempted by the Indian allies of
the French on account of which the paroled prisoners (18 months),
felt that they were free to enter the service again in 1758, and did
so in great numbers.

Upon the intelligence of this disaster, 20,000 militia rushed to
arms in New England and were placed under the command of Sir
William Pepperell who went to Springfield to protect the West-
ern frontier.

This alarm was nearly as generously responded to by the men of
Essex Co. as that of the 19th of April, 1775, but no fighting oc-
curred and the term of service was very short.

Seven thousand men were drafted from the " train bands " in
Massachusetts, being every fourth free holder training. Gen.
Abercrombie, on the 8th of July, attacked Ticonderoga by assault
and lost 2,000 men, of whom 500 were from New England. After
this assault he retired to Lake George.

1758.
Col. Bradstreet of Mass. and 3,000 men (about 1,000 from
Massachusetts) captured Ft. Frontenac on Lake Ontario. Few were
killed by the enemy, but a number died of disease. Sir Jeffrey
Amherst besieged Louisburg with 3,000 regulars and some provin-
cials. Col. Gridley was there. It was captured the 26th of July.

1759.

Amherst took Crown Point, Ticonderoga, etc., but failed to ef-
fect a junction with Wolfe before Quebec. Wolfe had captured
Quebec alone the 13th of Sept., 1759.

1760.
10th of Sept., Montreal surrendered. Treaty of Peace, Feb., 1763.

A few words concerning some of the commanders and the com-
panies from Danvers will not be ajniss t



TOWN OF DANVERS. 99

During the last French War, companies wore raised for the va-
rious expeditions against Crown Point, Nova Scotia, or for further
service. The men enlisted for those purposes, except that in the
last years Amherst enlisted his men " for the complete reduction
of Canada." There were several popular leaders in and near Dan-
vers. Capt. William Flint of Reading had a number of men from
the outskirts of Danvers in his company. His lieutenant was
Eleazer Lyndsey, whose father died in Danvers and owned farms
in both Lynn and Salem Village. James Pool was ensign. They
were attached to Col. Ichabod Plaisted's regiment, and served
from May to December, 1756, at Crown Point.

That same year Capt. Andrew Fuller of Middleton enlisted in
his company no less than sixteen Danvers men. They were sta-
tioned at Ft. William Henry in October. Joseph Swain, a son of
Capt. John of Reading, and the minister at Wenham, was their
chaplain. John Calef of Ipswich, afterward famous as a Loyalist
in the Revolution, was their surgeon. Both the lieutenant, James
Jennison, and the ensign, James Collins, were Danvers young men.

Again in 1758 we find Fuller's company with a large represen-
tation from Danvers with Israel Hutchinson as lieutenant, and
Richard Skidmore, " old skid '•' the famous drummer, on the rolls.

Israel Herrick of Boxford in his company of Rangers always had
several Danvers men to rely upon. He was engaged on the East-
ern frontier, that is in and about Maine.

John Tapley of Salem was captain of a company which was at
the surrender of Fort William Henry. Twelve Danvers men were
in his company at that time.

In 1759, Israel Davis of Danvers commanded a company which
went to Louisburg and remained in the service till 1761, and a
large number of his townsmen were in this company.

Many Danvers men, impressed for the war, were however placed
in companies raised in other parts of the county. The average
age of the men serving from Danvers could not have been much
above 21 years, so that it is not to be wondered at the spirit pre-
vailing in 1775, and the knowledge acquired by these men in the
French War was used to great advantage in the Revolution.
