Get Out Of Dodge -- Israel Dodge

Of the family of John and Lydia Rogers Dodge, their son Israel, third of the name in his line, true to the adventurous spirit of his ancestors, left home when only fifteen years old and made several voyages to the African coast. At eighteen he enlisted in the Revolutionary army and at the Battle of Brandywine, September 11, 1777, was wounded by a bayonet charge of the British line. [Source]
