INMAN, George, soldier, born in Boston, Massachusetts, 3 December, 1755; died in St. Christopher, W. I., in 1789. He was graduated at Harvard in 1772, and entered the British army as a volunteer in December, 1775. On the night before the battle of Long Island he captured a patrol of five American officers, an event which Johnson says largely influenced the result of the battle. For this service Sir William Howe presented him with an ensigncy in the 17th foot. He was wounded at Princeton, was present at Brandywine, Germantown, and Monmouth, and was promoted to a lieutenancy in the 26th foot, 29 June, 1778. Soon afterward his regiment was sent to England, and there he obtained the captaincy of a troop of horse that had been raised in the West Indies, and went to St. Christopher, where he died. His "Narrative of the Revolutionary War, 1776-1779," was published in the "Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography."
