The Property of Lee Harrison Peeters

Chapter Thirty Four:  Escape

Out of the fog, small boats filled with British troops appear. Before the rebels know it the British that  have landed are attacking them. The rebels set up a stubborn defense. But they are facing increasingly dangerous odds. Many are killed or wounded in the initial attack by the British led by Captain Kelly. And the rebels are outflanked. Some of them take off in the small boats near the dock. Others run off into the nearby woods of the island.
