August 9, 1776, he was made Brigadier-general, and he was in command at Fort Clinton when it was attacked, October, 1777, by the British under Sir Henry CLINTON. Although the attacking force was many times larger than his own, he made a gallant defense and refused to surrender. The fort was carried by storm at the point of the bayonet. He was the last to leave the works, and severely wounded, but he succeeded in escaping to the mountains. He co-operated with General SULLIVAN in a successful expedition against the Indians in 1779. He was in command at Albany during a great part of the war, and was present at the siege of Yorktown and at the evacuation of New York by the British.

Also, great-great-great-grandson of Philip SCHUYLER (1733-1804), who was in active service, and had attained the rank of Major during the French and Indian war, and after the peace of 1763 had been Colonel of militia. New York sent him to the Continental Congress in 1775, and in June of that year that body appointed him Major-general, and assigned him to the command of the Northern department. He at once engaged in organizing an army for the invasion of Canada. The advance of the American forces was made in September, but ill health compelled him to tun over the immediate command of operations in the field to General MONTGOMERY. In January, 1776, he personally commanded the troops which suppressed the tory rising in Tryon county, New York, under Sir John JOHNSON. He was also chairman of the board of commissioners for Indian affairs, and in this capacity his influence with the Indian tribes was of great service to the American cause. After the evacuation of Canada by the American forces in 1776, he was employed in raising men and gathering supplies to resist the further advance of the British. In 1777 he was again in Congress, and appointed Commander-in-chief of the military of the state of Pennsylvania, but in June of that year he returned to the command of the Northern department. His health was better than it had been for two years, and he performed a prodigious amount of labor in preparation for the defense of his department against the powerful army coming down from the north under BURGOYNE. Overwhelming force compelled the evacuation of Ticonderoga, and the Americans, inferior in numbers and inferior in discipline, were compelled to retreat toward Albany. General SCHUYLER promptly and thoroughly stripped the country of food and forage. He sent a force to resist and defeat ST. LEGER advancing through the valley of the Mohawk, and his strategy rendered the victory of Bennington possible. But the loss of Ticonderoga and the disheartening effect of the retreat of the army, raised a public clamor for his removal. On the 19th of August, 1777, when BURGOYNE's army was ready to drop into his hands, he was relieved of command by General GATES. "His plans were well laid and the crown of victory was clearly within his reach, when another stepped into his place, who, to secure the prize had only to stand still and wait the onward tide of events." - [Jared SPARKS.] His resignation from the army was accepted by Congress April 19, 1779, and in that year he was again a member of that body. From the beginning of the war he was the friend and trusted counsellor of WASHINGTON. He steadily advocated the consolidation of the Union “as the first of political blessings, and labored in the very front of the enlightened men of that day in appeasing local jealousies and state pride, then the greatest obstacles to political reform.” He represented the State of New York in the senate in 1789-1791, and was again chosen to that body in 1797.

On the retreat from New York, September 15th, his brigade was swept along in the panic to Harlem Heights. After White Plains, he remained with the troops east of the Hudson. In the movements of 1779 he served in the lest wing of the army east of the Hudson under General HEATH. His brigade assisted in repelling the enemy on the Connecticut coast in July.
