hey! hope im not bothering you, but do you know what rank (if any) hercules mulligan had in the continental army? (you dont have to go into detail, i just want to draw a thing and i need his rank) thank you!!! x
Sounded urgent, answered immediately:
In March of 1777, when Alexander Hamilton received his appointment to Washington’s staff, Hercules Mulligan was at that time quietly made a “confidential correspondent” to Washington.Operating behind British lines in the heart of the loyalist stronghold, he began a series of significant communications with the General. The specifics of the aid Mulligan provided, the frequency of his communication, and the benefit of his service to the American side has remained largely unreported by historians.
Hercules Mulligan was never given a rank- because while he was working for the American Revolution, he never joined the American army. He never had a rank.
