Things They Didn’t Have

Things They Didn’t Have

By Joe Wagner

 “We immediately beat to arms, forming the troops in two lines and served them with cartridges, which they could not have prudently been served with sooner, as they had several times received cartridges which had been destroyed and lost for want of cartouche boxes.  We marched out our lines to meet the enemy, some carrying their cartridges under their arms, others in the bosom of their shirts.”

General John Ashe

Georgia Militia

Briar Creek, GA

March, 1779
