Brockholst Livingston Captured by the British

Brockholst Livingston was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Revolutionary War and an aide-de-camp to General Philip Schuyler. Soon after this latter appointment he was granted a leave of absence to accompany John Jay to Spain as secretary. On the return voyage in 1782, his ship was captured by the British. He was taken prisoner and brought to New York, but was released soon afterwards.
