Threaded View
During the Revolutionary War, there were British sympathizers known as
Tories among the colonists. Some of them would work hand-in-hand with
the Redcoats to try to foil the battle plans of the Continental Army.

After a certain skirmish, a group of General Washington's men tracked
one of these sympathizers to a farm, which they searched for hours
without success. A militiaman then came up with the idea to release a
hen into a barn where they suspected the fugitive might be hiding.

Sure enough, loud cackling and commotion quickly ensued, and the
soldiers were finally able to take their prisoner into custody. This was
the first known instance where someone ...... had a chicken catch a Tory.
