toadfrog Background To Patriotic Diggers? (4) RE: Background To Patriotic Diggers? 16 Jul 03

Sorry, I was wrong about the War for Independence. The "patriotic diggers" were a group of volunteers who turned out in August, 1814, to fortify New York when Washington was about to be captured. Or so it says at this site, which describes the 1812 war.
