This wooden canteen, inscribed with Asahel's name, can be found in the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia.

Asahel served in Elias Dunning's Company of the 13th Regiment of the Connecticut Militia, part of the state forces mobilized to defend New York City in 1776. His company arrived in the city on Aug. 9 -- his papers say he entered the service Aug. 12 -- and retreated after the British attack on Kip's Bay. They fought in the Battle of Harlem Heights on Sept. 16.
