Defender of Fort Griswold, taken prisoner by the British

"Walter Buddington, as I learn from his great grandson, George W Brown, arose at the sound of the alarm guns on the morning of the battle and told his wife there would be bloody work that day - as in a dream he had seen the body of a man lying across their garden wall. After breakfast he took his gun from the deer horns over the fire place and started for the fort, where he was through the engagement. He was taken prisoner, and confined on board the Jersey prison-ship at New York. In about a year he was released, and with a companion started for Groton afoot. In their travels, on a Sunday morning, they asked food at a place in Connecticut, and were given a most inviting breakfast of which Buddington ate sparingly knowing his weakened condition from long confinement and deficient food. His companion, not so cautious, could not forbear eating heartily - from the effects of which he died before reaching home. Buddington arrived safely home, where he died April 8, 1800, aged sixty eight years" source: The Battle of Groton Heights: A Collection of Narratives, Official Reports ...By William Wallace Harris, p. 290
