Calkin's enlistment in the war of the Revolution — when — and where. First rendezvous at the city of Albany, under Colonel Willett. Marched on an expedition to Johnstown — Stone Robie, and Fort Plain; all on the Mohawk, f bloody memory. Secret expedition in the night, but the destination unknown to the men. The rescue of Fort Plant, an inland place, near the Mohawk, from a large force of Indians who menaced its capture. Death of two young men by the Indians, who had gone from the Fort, before day light, to distant pasture for some horses. Appearance of many Indians on the skirts of the forest, surrounding Fort Plant at sun-rise. The effect of chain shot when thrown among them from the guns of the Fort. Perilous rescue of the cattle of the neighborhood, from an old pasture, situate some distance from Fort Plant, in the woods, by Calkins and a fellow soldier.
