Loyal Refugee Volunteers
Killed and Wounded

July 21st, 1780

The following is the Names of the brave Refugees that were killed and wounded at Col. CUYLER's Refugee Post, near Fort Lee, about 8 Miles from New-York, on Hudson's River, on Friday the 21st inst. as mentioned in the preceding Page, viz. Thomas PHILIPS, of the Artillery, John M'MURDY, with another Man, and a Negro, killed.

Lieutenants George and Absolam BULL, Alexander SHARP, John and Ezekial FEALY, and John MULLAN, wounded.

The principal Officers on the Attack were Colonels Moiland, Stewart, Hays, Proctor, and the Majors Lee and More.

Thus the chosen Band of Washington's Army were repulsed by a few determined Loyalists: and we have Reason to believe the Loss of the Rebels much greater than has yet been ascertained-and to add more to the Spirit of the Refugees, a Party, under the Command of the brave Captain WARD, pursued the Rear of the retreating Army upwards of 4 Miles, retook 20 Head of Cattle that were carried off from the well affected neighbours, killed one Rebel, and made Prisoner of General Wain's Servant, and another.

The New-York Gazette and the Weekly Mercury, July 24th, 1780.
