Additional Details:
Dewey House, built by the "Parson" for his son in 1765, on which floor the night of August 15, 1777 slept many American Patriots, while the women of the household baked eighty loaves of bread for their use the following day of strife. All men folk having left for the battle and an Army Surgeon having appropriated the horse left for her flight, it was Mrs. Mary Tilden Dewey who proposed, if necessary to defend herself against the Indians, to bombard them with "Hasty Pudding and a quantity of boiling water."
