Queen's American Rangers
Howe to Germain, Battle at Crooked Billet


To the Skill and Activity of Lieutenant Colonel ABERCROMBY must be attributed a successful Surprize made on the 4th Instant upon a Corps of the Enemy consisting of 900 Men under the Command of a Brigadier General posted about Seventeen Miles from hence, with 400 Light Infantry, 300 Rangers and a Party of Light Dragoons;

that Officer attacked and defeated this Corps of the Enemy, killing, wounding, and taking 150 Men including Officers with the Loss of only nine wounded.

The Rout would have been far more complete, if the long march of the Infantry in effecting this Surprize had not disabled them from a vigorous Pursuit.

Great Britain, Public Record Office, Colonial Office, Class 5, Volume 96, folios 15-17.
