"NOTE F.
301 Miles Sage, 1758--son of Daniel, 1725). Was a soldier in the War of Independence. The following incident is related of him in a work by Hon. John Clements, entitled "Revolutionary Reminiscences of Camden County, N. J." As a vidette in a regiment commanded by Col. Ellis, he was often placed on duty to watch the movements of the enemy. The regiment to which he belonged was stationed at Haddonfield, N. J. The British planned a night attack thereon, with the view of its capture or destruction. Sage, with another soldier, was watching their movements, and at once proceeded to give the alarm. His companion, taking a shorter route, succeeded in giving timely notice, and thus prevented its surprise and capture.
After his regiment had left, Sage rode up, and to his great surprise found that he was in the midst of the British troops, who at the same time noticed that he was an American. He at once put spurs to his horse and escaped in the darkness until he had gained some distance, when his horse was wounded and fell. Before he could disengage himself from his horse he was attacked and stabbed in various places and left for dead. By order of a Scotch officer, he was removed to a place near by and attended by a surgeon. On examination, he was found to have several severe bayonet wounds. These were carefully dressed, and he was left to the care of the women at that time, and soon after to the care of his mother, by whose careful nursing he finally recovered. The State of New Jersey paid the expenses, his mother being unable to do so. He lived to see the liberties of his country achieved and long thereafter."
