According to the “Historical Register of Officers of the Continental Army During the War of the Revolution” Lt. Col. David Dimon was there from the 6th Connecticut regiment. I am a member of that present day re-enacting regiment; I don’t know who else from the 6th may have been there, (as we are in the process of trying to re-construct the history of our regiment,) or if the 6th CT was there as an entity or possibly had detached one or more companies. One of our Sgts. is doing research in that area, and may make other discoveries as well which would be forwarded to you. The entry on Dimon in the aforementioned book reads as follows:
“Dimon, David (Conn.) Captain in the Lexington Alarm, April 1775; Capt. 5th Connecticut, 1st May to December 1775; Brigade-Major to General Wooster, 13th June to 18th September, 1775, and to General Schuyler 18th September 1775 to December 1776; Lieutenant-Colonel 6th Connecticut, 1st January 1777; died 18th September, 1777, of wounds received at Brandywine, 11th September, 1777.”
