Christopher Sickler, the progenitor of the Gloucester Co NJ Sicklers fought in the Revolutionary War on the side of the colonists. The story is that he had been working in his garden when a British soldier tossed him into jail without cause. He was released after nothing could be found to hold him. But the incident made him so irate that he joined the revolution. The Sickler home was referred to for many generations afterwards as the "Revolutionary War House."
