Captain Michael Rudulph

During the Revolutionary War this daring officer commanded a Cecil County troop of Lee’s Legion, the Cavalry of Lieutenant Colonel Henry (Light Horse Harry) Lee. Near here in 1778, Rudulph is said to have led a squad disguised as poultry peddlers who boarded and captured a British Man-of-War blockading the Port of Charlestown. His cousin, Major John (Fighting Jack) Rudulph also served with distinction in Lee’s Legion. Link
