Their captain was Robert Rogers, of New Hampshire,a strong, well-knit figure, in dress and appearance more woodsman than soldier, with a clear, bold eye, and features that would have been good but for the ungainly proportions of the nose.  He had passed his boyhood in the rough surroundings of a frontier village.
