    Biography
    • Major James McMahan was one of the men who went as a private with Captain Hawkins Boone to the relief of Fort Freeland when it was attacked by Tories and Indians. The fort had already surrendered when Boone’s men arrived, and when told of this McMahan exclaimed, “I will die before surrender,” and leaped back across Warrior Run. He got behind a large tree for protection, and to his surprise there stood David Hammond, an uncle of General Robert H. Hammond. They succeeded in making their escape, but Captain Hawkins Boone and a number of his men were killed.
