Begin June 12, 1781

Water was critical to the survival of the men confined to the Star Fort, but the town's only water source, Spring Branch, lay well beyond its walls and within range of Patriot fire. Cruger hoped to remedy this dire situation by digging a well inside the fort. But at 25 feet, no water was found and the effort was abandoned.
