About Joseph Moxley, Jr.
Defender of Fort Griswold
"Joseph Moxley Jr, about nineteen years old, at work with his father as a carpenter, went also as a volunteer to the fort. He was one of those who attempted to save themselves in the magazine. He had a musket ball pass through his clothing across his stomach cutting his vest in pieces, hurting him only by the shock. He afterward jumped off the wall and escaped." source: The Battle of Groton Heights: A Collection of Narratives, Official Reports ...By William Wallace Harris, p. 241
