George Washington Papers

Memorandum, 13 July 1756


[Fort Cumberland, Md., 13 July 1756]


Wrote to Captains Hamilton, Minor, Baylis, Fields; and to Lieutenant Neugent—that the Governour has ordered them and their men to be discharged as soon as the harvest is cut and secured: and ordered them to march through Winchester, to leave the arms, &c. belonging to the country.1


1If GW did issue these orders to the militia officers on 13 July, they have not been found; but see GW to William Baylis, 21 July 1756.
