Happy #ManuscriptMonday! This week marks the 249th anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the first major military action of the Revolutionary War. While the battles took place more than 200 miles away and in a different colony from Fort Ticonderoga, the locations are connected by the life stories of the soldiers who served in both places. One such soldier was Captain Edmund Munro (also spelled Munroe), the author of today’s document, MS.1965. Munro was born and raised in Lexington, MA and was part of Captain John Parker’s company of Lexington militia. He was present with the company on Lexington’s town common on the morning of April 19, 1775 as the militia confronted British troops on their way to confiscate military stores at Concord. During the skirmish, he watched men from the company, including his own relatives, fall to British fire. In July 1776, Munro marched to Fort Ticonderoga as a lieutenant and quartermaster in Colonel Jonathan Reed’s 6th Regiment of Middlesex Militia. This was likely not his first visit to Ticonderoga; several decades earlier, he had served with Massachusetts’ provincial forces in the French and Indian War and spent time stationed at Fort Crown Point. In MS.1965, a letter to his wife Rebekah dated October 20, 1776, Munro describes life at Ticonderoga: “We have had no attack from the Enemy, but are hourly Expecting them… we Indeavor to be in the Best Preparations.” Despite the suspense of a possible attack, which might have brought back memories of his encounter with the British in Lexington, Munro claimed to be doing well: “I am in good health & high spirits”. He would not face the British again that season. They had advanced as far as Crown Point, but had chosen to retreat after seeing the quality of Ticonderoga’s defenses. Munro returned home to Lexington and to Rebekah that winter, but his military journey continued, eventually leading him to Monmouth, NJ, where a British cannonball cut his brave and well-traveled life short.
