Corporal 'Lige's Recruit...

...A Story of Crown Point and Ticonderoga,  By James Otis (Juvenile Fiction):


A reference to Ticonderoga was found in an ancestor's (John Backus) Revolutionary War pension papers here.  In a supporting affidavit for his father's pension application, John Backus's son stated that he "Often heard him say on his return that he was at Ticonderoga under Gen'l Wayne in Captain Douglas Company."
