The Narrative of Ethan Allen’s Captivity written in 1778 by Colonel Allen.

During the Revolutionary War, and after the battles of Lexington and Concord, Ethan Allen captured Fort Ticonderoga in May 1775. This was the first fort taken by the Americans. On September 24, 1775 in Montreal, Canada, Ethan was captured and kept on British prison ships. The British barely kept him alive, then two and a half years later he was exchanged for a colonel and was set free.
