There was a later Ledger, mentioned before, into which Mr. Hull carried the closing accounts of the war. These accounts, however, have little except names and wages, with very few additional facts. We remember that while these accounts of Mr. Hull are, by far, the most complete of any existing roll of early colonial soldiers, they give little besides the facts of services and wages. In the dingy old documents contained in the Mass. Archives, are many petitions, and other references, which speak of almost incredible hardships, of manly fortitude and devotion, which lift many a name here, out of the dull lists of "Military Service," and up into the ranks of heroes and patriots. Many such references appear in the foregoing pages, like that of Widow Mary Turner after Capt. Turner's death; that of Lieut. John Wyman and others. Many others whose names are not here, appear in the old documents referred to; like that of Benjamin Rockwood (Rocket), who, in a later Ledger, has credit for Military Service, in 1677. In Mass. Archives, vol. 72, pp. 622-624, several original documents are found showing that he was a soldier in Philip's war, was in service at the Westward, and then was sent, under Capt. Swett, to the Eastward; and at Blackpoynt, was twice severely wounded, and was confined in Salem Hospital for "a quarter of a year." A memorial of his townsmen testifies to the facts, and other evidence shows that he had "two bullets in his thigh." Much more is found about this last case, which, being typical of the times and men, doubtless had many parallels, if we knew all.
