The 9th Regiment was sent to Quebec early in 1776 to counter the American invasion of Canada. They pursued the Americans down Lake Champlain and were then attached to the Army under Burgoyne, and fought at Saratoga. He escaped the prisoner of war column as it was nearing the Hudson River and made his way to New York City. He joined the 23rd Regiment of Foot (Royal Welch Fusiliers) and was promoted to sergeant. In 1780 he sailed with Sir Henry Clinton's forces to South Carolina, and participated in the pivotal campaigns in South.
