GORDON HUTCHINS after the battle of Lexington or-
ganized a company and joined the Regiment of Col. John
Stark, of the New Hampshire troops, and took part in the
battle of Bunker Hill. When Burgoyne's advance in 1777
was known in New Hampshire, the General Assembly, of
which he was a member, was called together. As soon as it
was decided to raise troops to oppose Burgoyne, Col. Hutchins
mounted his horse, and traveling all night with all haste,
reached Concord, New Hampshire, Sabbath afternoon, before
the close of religious worship. Dismounting at the meeting
house door, he walked up the aisle while the minister was
preaching. The latter paused in his sermon and said : "Col.
Hutchins, are you the bearer of any message?" "Yes," replied
the Colonel: "Gen. Burgoyne with his army is on his march to
Albany. Gen. Stark has offered to take the command of the
New Hampshire men, and if we will turn out we can cut off
Burgoyne's march." Then the minister said: "My hearers,
those of you who are willing to go better leave at once." Every
man left the meeting house. The result at Bennington is well
known.

He afterward joined the Continental Army in New York,
and was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel in Col. Nahum Bald-
win's New Hampshire Regiment.
