The subject is 78 year old Samuel Whittemore, who took up arms in the later part of the day on April 19, 1775 after the Battles of Lexington and Concord. While skirmishing with others he was cornered by soldiers of the battalion company of the British 47th Regiment of Foot. He shot one with his musket and two more with his pistols. He was shot in the face, clubbed in the head with a musket butt and bayoneted a number times. Despite his grievous wounds he lived another 18 years! Accounts of this vary greatly in details and the story gets better as told over over the last 200 years.
