IN U.S. HISTORY
By ELMO SCOTT WATSON
Christopher Greene Her Woo
"The post with which you arc en
trusted la ot utmost Importune to
America. The whole defense ot the
Delaware depends upon It; and con
aequently all the enemy's hopes ot
keeping I'hllndelphla and finally suc
ceeding In the present campaign." So
wrote George Washington to Col.
Christopher Greene, a brar offlcer
who had fought under Arnold and
Montgomery at Quebec and who waa
now In this critical year of 1777 given
command of Fort Mercer at Red Itnnlc
on the w Jersey shore of the Del
aware rlwr. Fort Mifflin and Fort
Mercer, named for Gen. Hugh Mercer,
were two threata against I'hlladelphla.
Lord Howe had occupied that city
and Greene waa given 0 Rhode la
land Continentals to hold the post.
Greene Immediately began puttlnit
the fort Into condition, a work In
which he was greatly ahled by dipt.
Mauduit Duplessla, a young French
engineer who hud enllxted In the pa
triot cmiwe. Hofore the rvpalra wer
completed, however, a force of l.JtHl
Hesxlan grenadiers, led by the fa
mous Count Itauup, appeared and de
manded lis surrender. Greene scorn
fully replied that be would defend hi
post to the last and refused to be
frightened when Donop declared that
no quarter would be given If he was
forced to take Fort Mercer by storm.
So the llesxiun. covered by a heavy
artillery ntv, advanced In two column
to attack the outworks of the fort.
After pouring in a galling tire,
Greene's ltlioile Islanders rellrod to
the main worjia where they concealed
themselves to give the attackers tl.e j
Idea that the port was poorly gar
risoned. When the enemy pound
through a breach which they had
made In the north redoubt, they nt
a great cheer us tliouii thu tidory
waa already won.
Just at that moment a comeiled
battery waa unmasked and accompa
nied by a heavy musketry flrv It
poured out a blast of death upon the
Teutons. The attackers reeled back.
On the south side of the fort Count
lonop, leading his men In p.-rson,
went down mortally wounded. Ills
second In command was also stricken,
and although the next In command
tried hard to lead his men on, the
stubborn resistance of the IlTio-le Is
landers and their destructive nr had
broken the spirit of the llesstum who
In this brief battle the enemy lost
more than 400 men. The American
los waa only eight killed and twenty
nine wounded! This brilliant defense
brought a thrill of hope to the coun
try In one of the darkest days of the
Revolution and congress recognized
the achievement of Colonel Greene by
passing hlin a vote ot thanks and pre
venting him (word at a tesUtnoulai
