The Journal | Saving Captain Asgill

$10.00

The American War of Independence was nearing its end, but the fighting continued. A young British captain—a prisoner of war protected by a surrender treaty—was chosen by lot to be hanged in retribution for the murder of an American patriot. Through 233 years only one side of the story has been old. Now Captain Charles Asgill’s long-lost letter of rebuttal will tell the rest of the story.

Vol. 120, No. 3, Winter 2019 issue of The Journal of Lancaster County’s Historical Society
