Revolutionary War

Jacob Vatter (Feather) - See Biography

Apparently joined the war effort shortly after his arrival in America. He was 16 or 17. Belonged to a volunteer company in Philadelphia and served under Captain Samuel Morris in Washington's command. Later in the war, one of his officers was Luke Morris, a merchant in Philadelphia, serving under the command of Thomas Mifflin, the quartermaster general of the Continental Army.

Jacob's military records show that he was with Washington's army when it crossed the Delaware River on Christmas night, 1776. Early the next morning, Washington's troops struck a finishing blow to the garrison of three regiments of hired German Hessians stationed at Trenton, New Jersey, under the command of Lord Charles Cornwallis. On January 2, 1777, Jacob was at the Battle of Princeton, New Jersey, where the British had another defeat. Together, these battles constituted the first turning point in the war and temporarily cleared the British and Hessians out of New Jersey.

The records show that Jacob was also present at the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown, Virginia, on October 19, 1781. This was the siege that ended the war. (He would have been 22 by this time.)
