Flying Camp
Posted by: Stefan Fetterhoff (ID *****8211) Date: February 03, 2011 at 13:26:22

I'm seeking information about the Flying Camp. I know that the group was in service at the Batttle of Long Island, but I recently found a pension that adds data to the story.

In it, the soldier states that while with the Flying Camp he was in the battle of Trenton. This would mean that this unit crossed the Delaware, fought at Princeton, and was disbanded soon after. Is this data correct? Was this unit with Washington on that famous Christmas night, in 1776?
