What Happened

Israel Putham and John Stark raided Chelsea on Northern part of Boston Harbor for livestock and other supplies and burned the hay used for the British's animals. A skirmish occurred. The British tried to get rid of any chance for them to escape, by towing Diana, but failed. The colonists captured it and took all the supplies. They burned the ship so the ship wouldn't get in the British's hands again. The colonists ended up winning and gained a lot of supplies from it.
