Battle of Germantown - October 4, 1777

After distinguished service in the Campaign of 1776, Delaware's Continental regiment was formally reorganized in early 1777. Assigned to the divisionof Major General John Sullivan, the Delaware Regiment was a part of that unit's costly offensive against the British left during the Battle of Germantown.Regimental returns reported three men killed, nine missing and twenty-six wounded, the latter group including the regiment's commander, Colonel DavidHall. Others died later as a result of their wounds. Among these was Captain Thomas Holland, a former British Army officer whose military training and experience had contributed so much to the discipline and efficiency of the regiment. The Delaware Regiment continued to serve for the remainder of the Revolution, earning high honors and universal respect while participating in many of the war's major engagements.
