CUTTER, Ammi Ruhamah, physician, born in North Yarmouth, Maine, 4 March 1735; died in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, 8 December 1819. His father, the first minister of that town, was chaplain of a New England regiment at the siege of Louisburg in 1745. His son was graduated at Harvard in 1752 and afterward studied medicine with Dr. Clement Jackson, of Portsmouth. He was surgeon of Colonel Robert Roger's rangers until they were disbanded, and in 1758 surgeon of the New Hampshire troops in the successful expedition against Louiburg. He was physician-general of the eastern department, stationed at Fishkill from April 1777, until the beginning of 1778, when he resumed practice at Portsmouth. He was a delegate to the New Hampshire constitutional convention, a Whig, and long president of the New Hampshire medical society.

American Republics. This is history on a splendid scale -- a book about the not
quite unified American Colonies and States that would eventually form a fourth
republic, with only 11 states, the United States of America: We The
