Missed Opportunity: George Washington & Captain Ferguson
by Pamela Patrick White

 
     
 
There was a lull in the battle some time in the late morning when British Captain Ferguson spotted an American Officer riding with a European Cavalry officer.The British watched them disappear into the woods, only to have the officer reappear, this time alone, about 100 yards away. Mounted on a "very good bay and wearing a high cocked hat" Ferguson called to the officer to halt, but the American proceeded regardless. Leveling his gun at him Ferguson again yelled to stop but the officer slowly continued on his way. Ferguson could easily have shot the officer, but did not feel it "pleasant" to fire into the back one who was so unoffending. He let him alone. A few minutes later a shot rang out and Ferguson was hit, shattering his elbow. As the surgeons later dressed his wound, they informed him that same officer had ridden in their view also and that it had been General Washington.
