Edward "Ned" Hector (reenacted by Noah Lewis)

Short Biography

"Ned" was in Col. Proctor's 3rd PA Artillery. He was a freeman and a teamster that drove gunpowder in his wagon for cannons. He was also a bombardier. He was considered a hero at Brandywine for braving a British attack on their position and saving his horses, wagon, and some guns, when ordered to retreat.


"Ned" was a bombardier. This means that he was 1 of 7 men who fired the cannon. Watch the 5th graders working as a team to fire a cannon!
