Who commanded the 2nd Rhode Island Infantry
Battle of Springfield
23rd June, 1780.
Headquarters, Rampaugh. 28th June, 1780.
—— The gallant behaviour of Col. Angell's regiment on the 23rd inst., at Springfield, reflects the highest honour upon the officers and men. They disputed an important pass with so obstinate a bravery that they lost upwards of forty killed, wounded and missing, before they gave up their ground to a vast superiority of force. —-
Your Excellency's Most Obedient Servant,
To Governour Greene.
