Joseph Plumb


Joseph Plumb Martin also spelled as Joseph Plum Martin in military records and recorded as Joseph P. Martin in civilian town clerk records. (November 21, 1760 – May 2, 1850) was a soldier in the Continental Army and Connecticut Militia during the American Revolutionary War, holding the rank of private for most of the war. His published narrative of his experiences, re-discovered in the 1950s, has become a valuable resource for historians in understanding the conditions of a common soldier of that era, as well as the battles in which Martin participated.<
