November 29, This day during the American Revolution

November 29, 1775 – at Boston, Massachusetts – In Boston Harbor, the American schooner, USS Lee, commanded by Capt. John Manley, chased and captured the HMS Nancy, a 250-ton British ordnance brig. Washington was greatly pleased because the booty seized by Manley included 2,000 muskets with bayonets, scabbards, ramrods, 31-tons of musket shot, a 2,700 lb. mortar, and other valuable supplies.
