Added by Elwin Nickerson II about my Ancestor with Noted Citation- Personal Letters.

Rev. William Emerson was of that class of which Bancroft wrote, "Eloquent and accomplished chaplains kept alive the habit of daily prayer, and preached the wonted sermons on the day of the Lord."

     Writing from the camp to his wife at Concord, Mr. Emerson said, --
     "There are many things amiss in this camp, yet upon the whole, God is in the midst of us."
     On another occasion he wrote:
     "I despair seeing a battle fought this time coming down."
     While in service in the northern campaign in 1776, Rev. Mr. Emerson's health failed, and he addressed the following letter to the commanding officer: --

TICONDEROGA, Sept. 10, 1776.

     Sir, -- My Ill State of Health is such that I am not able to perform the Duty of a Chaplain, and am advised by the Physicians to ask for a dismission from the Army, and shall be glad of your consent and assistance thereto.


     To LT. COLLO. B. BROWN:
     The Reverend Mr. William Emerson has my Discharge from the Northern Army of the United States of America. TYCONDEROGA, 10th September, 1776.


     Major General.
     The above letters are in the possession of the Emerson family at Concord.

Revolutionary War Figure. He was the minister in the town of Concord, Massachusetts, from 1765 to 1776. In 1770, near the soon-to-be-famous North Bridge in that town he built his home, which would later become known as the "Old Manse." From his pulpit he preached resistance to oppression by the English Parliament. On April 19, 1775, the first day of the American Revolution, he pleaded with the leaders of the American militia to launch an immediate attack on the British regulars instead of waiting for reinforcements. His demands were ignored, but when the fighting did begin, Emerson anxiously watched the battle unfold from his own land. In August of 1776, he left the Manse to serve as chaplain of the American army at Fort Ticonderoga. It was there he caught dysentery, which lead him to resign his commission to return home. He was able to make it as far as Rutland, Vermont, before becoming too ill to travel. He is the grandfather of the author Ralph Waldo Emerson as well
