Revolutionary War veteran Joseph Plumb Martin, in his 1830 memoir, recounted the storming of Redoubt 10, “While crossing the trench, the enemy threw hand grenades (small shells) into it…As I mounted the breastwork, I met an old associate hitching himself down in the trench; I knew him by the light of the enemy’s musketry, it was so vivid. The fort was taken, and all was quiet in a very short time.”
