Col. MOSES HAZEN & Sgt. Colin McLACHLAN
My 4th great-grandfather was Colin McLachlan. He was in Capt. Heron's company and Capt. Carlile's Company of Col. MOSES HAZEN's Regiment from 1777 - 1783. I am researching the history of Hazen's Regiment during this period. My ancester wrote letters detailing the battles that he participated in under Hazen, including the battles of Brandywine, Germantown and the Siege of Yorktown where Colin McLachlan was wounded by the bursting of a shell. Col. Hazen awarded my ancestor the Badge of Honor for this action. Colin was discharged in June 1783 at Pompton Plains, NJ and started a family there. Later he moved to Octoraro, MD, Chester, Pa. and, finally, West Fallowfield, Chester Co. I AM LOOKING FOR ANY REFERENCES TO HAZEN'S REGIMENT; specifically dates, places, times, actions, maneuvers, etc. Thank you.
