At the age of 11 Thomas Hill was already doing the work of a man. He and his younger brother Issac age 9 drove the wagons full of hay which was used in building the redoubts at "Bunker Hill". They were under constant cannon fire yet they continued through out the night. This obviously is a musket he acquired later on but none the less was carried by a 'Patriot'. It's a turn of the century absolutely untouched militia musket as used in the War of 1812. Thomas Hill is listed in the first U.S.census(1790) as living in the Township of New Holderness, Grafton Co.,New Hampshire. A great gun new to the collecting fraternity. More research needs to be done on Thomas Hill.
