Also see . . . Marinus Willett (Wikipedia). After the American defeat at Oriskany, Marinus Willett and another officer slipped through British lines down the Mohawk to Fort Dayton for help. They only took spontoons as weapons and whiskey, cheese, and crackers for food. At Fort Dayton he learned that Major General Schuyler had already dispatched a second relief force under the command of Benedict Arnold. Willett proceeded to Albany where he met with Arnold and then returned to Fort Dayton with Arnold's army. (Submitted on September 4, 2019, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
