A Battle A Day - Revolutionary War
On this day in 1775, Capt. John Lamb is ordered to secure the guns at the Battery Park and move them to a safe location. The HMS Asia gets wind of the attempt and exchanges fire with Lamb's men. Panic ensues prompting the exodus of city residents to New Jersey and Long Island after the first Battle of New York City.
