Gen. Fellows Breastwork

On the evening of October 9, General Fellows took up position on the heights on the east side of the Hudson River overlooking the British positions and established a battery on one of the hills facing the British positions. Fellows had previously been positioned on the west side of the Hudson but had repositioned to prevent the British from crossing the river to use the Battenkill Ford in their retreat. On October 10 and 11, the Continental Artillery from Fellows' Battery attacked the British bateaux at the mouth of Fish Creek.
