Cyndi, After re-reading your message I got to thinking about your remark that you didn't know how long Michael was held prisoner. It occurred to me that there might have been prisoner exchanges so I consulted a friend of mine who is a professional historian.
He said that prisoner exchanges were common during the Revolutioary War. The British did not consider militia men much of a threat because they usually were not well trained. Thus, Michael was very likely not held a long time at all.
Carl
