Same Andrew Lewis???

BRIGADIER GENERAL ANDREW LEWIS COMMANDER OF ALL VIRGINIA MILITIA TROOPS AT THE TIME OF INDEPENDENCE JULY 6 1776

In 1774, later Brigadier General Andrew Lewis, then a Colonel, and from Botetourt County, Virginia then, was the victorious commander at The Battle of Point Pleasant on the Ohio River in present-day West Virginia, considered by some as the first battle of the American Revolution, occurring only a few days before the First Continental Congress met regarding independence.

General Lewis recruited 1000 American frontiersmen from Virginia to march over the mountains of Virginia to Point Pleasant.

A forced march over more than a hundred miles, it was the largest military force of Americans ever assembled up to that time and Colonel Lewis personally took his frontier fighters into battle.


STATUE TO ANDREW LEWIS AT POINT PLEASANT, WEST VIRGINIA

Andrew Lewis' success against a large Indian force out to ambush him there resulted in George Washington's recommendation to the Continental Congress that Andrew Lewis become the General of the American Armies during the Revolution. Andrew Lewis declined the honor in favor of George Washington to head all the American forces in the Revolution.

Colonel Charles Lewis, brother of Andrew Lewis, who earlier in the French and Indian War, in 1763-64 had rescued McCord children from the French and Indians in western Pennsylvania, was in 1774 Commander of the Augusta County, Virginia militia forces. Colonel Andrew Lewis had earlier been Commander of the Augusta County militia. Colonel Charles Lewis lost his life at The Battle of Point Pleasant.



LETTERS FROM GEORGE WASHINGTON:

To MAJOR ANDREW LEWIS Fort Loudoun, July 29, 1757.

   Sir: You are ordered forthwith to march with all the Draughts which are at this place belonging to your own Company and Capt. Woodwards, together with Capt. Spotswoods, to Dickinsons plantation, on the cow-pasture; where I expect you will meet Captn. Woodward on his march to Vauses. When a junction of these three Companies is formed, you are, if the ravages of the Enemy, and circumstances of the Inhabitants, do not render other dispositions necessary, to detach Capt. Woodwards whole company; and an officer and 25 men of Captn. Spotswoods, to occupy Vases fort and, (if you think proper) the posts on Cuttawba, and at Campbells place: and with the rest you are to proceed to Dickinson's fort; where you are to order Lt. Bullet, and that part of your company under his command, to join you. 
   I can not at this distance, with the least degree of propriety, pretend to order a disposition of your command further than to advise you, not to divide it into too small parties. You are nevertheless to assist any body of Inhabitants, which may have gathered together in certain places, and need protection, but to appoint no more men to this service, than what are absolutely necessary to act upon the defensive, reserving as many as possible under your immediate direction, at Dickensons fort, to turn out in pursuit of the Enemy, when you hear they are about. 
   You will have the direction of the aforesaid Companies, till further orders, and to you they are to apply for instructions, to you make the returns, as required in my general instructions; and from you I expect them myself. 
   You will deliver Captn. Woodward the Kettles sent for his company. You will receive from me £21.18. the contents of a recruiting accompt of Capt. Hogg which you are desired to pay him. You will also receive £30.4.2 value of sundry Servants enlisted in that part of your company lately under Captn. Hogg's command: And I shall be glad if you will settle this matter, and pay the Masters according to appointment, which is as follows; Charles Campbell for Mark Donally, £9. to Wm. Lewis, for Francis Adams, £13.11.6 To Andrew Duncan, for Thomas Davis, £7.12.8. 
   You will likewise receive £2.12 to be paid to the following Soldiers, in the following sums, agreeably to their several accompts handed in by Lt. Bullet: To John Heart, 8/ John Leak, 8/ Mark Donally, 4/ and Moses Gawin 32/. 
   You must apply to the Surgeon of the Regiment for a small assortment of medicines, which Mr. Fleming has promised to administer to the sick of your Detachment. For other directions, I refer you to my General Instructions herewith delivered. 



To MAJOR ANDREW LEWIS Fort Loudoun, April 21, 1758.

   Sir: I do not yet know, whether any of the Levies raised by the newly appointed Officers, in consequence of the late Act of Assembly, will fall to our share; and as we want about 130 men to complete the Virginia Regiment, I earnestly recommend, that you will use the most efficacious means in your power to recruit your quota in Augusta, and its Borders: Farther than this District I wou'd not have you send Officers recruiting, as they must be ready to join you as soon as the Troops are ordered to this place. I have no money to send you for this purpose (which is a misfortune) but you may give the Recruits the strongest assurances, in my name, that they shall, upon their arrival at this place, receive each man £10 and a suit of Clothes, advantage of the Recruits for the New Regiment. I would have you send Lt. Crawford 4 directly to this place; he is well acquainted in those parts, and I hope from such encouragement, will be able to pick up some clever fellows. 

[Note:Lieut. John Crawford. ]

   I have so often, and earnestly recommended the due practice of the Soldiers in their Exercises, that it is needless, I hope, to urge it again to [you] in this letter. But I must desire, that you will take great pains to get all your Arms straightened, and the men taught to shoot well at Targets, as that is an highly necessary qualification in our Service. 
   I offer my Compliments to Captn. McNeill, and all the Officers, and am, Sir, etc. 


To MAJOR ANDREW LEWIS April 26, 1758.

   Sir: I have this instant and not before, received the Presidents orders to direct the Captains of the 1st. Virginia Regim't to compleat their Companies with all possible expedition, to 100 Rank and file each. The enclosed is a copy of the Instructions which I have given the Officers sent out from this place. You may give the same to yours; with this only difference; that all the Officers you can possibly spare for this service, be directed to rendezvous, the 10th. of May, at Staunton, if you shall not have marched before for this place; and to follow you as fast as possible, if you have. 
   I have received no money yet to carry on this Service; but shall this day send down to Williamsburgh for some. 
   You are not to delay a moment in marching to this place, after you are relieved; and orders, I believe, are issued to the Militia for that purpose. Take great care to distribute the Militia properly, according to the numbers that may come out. l scarcely know what direction to give you about the Country Stores (ammunition and Tools, I mean) as I can not tell in what manner the Militia will be provided with those Things. The tools, I think, if they are not absolutely necessary there, ought to be brought to this place: as they certainly will be wanted here. The Pay-Master will appoint a time to meet your Companies pay-rolls at Staunton; and you must punctually observe it. I am etc.
