Baum Site 3 Part III: Revised Order

As Baum prepared to depart from Fort Miller on August 11th, Burgoyne rode on horseback, from Fort Edward to Fort Miller, to deliver a revised order. A Loyalist had informed Colonel Skene of a supply depot left scantily guarded in Bennington (Vermont), and Skene convinced Burgoyne to limit and re-direct the raid to the small settlement along the Walloomsac River. Baum detached his force from Burgoyne’s army, and left Fort Miller at noon.
