The story

Farmer’s Breeches –  are those of Alletta Rapelje’s brother. In September, 1814, American soldiers with traitor, Andrew Westbrook, raided her family’s farm, burning and stealing what they could. One soldier confiscated her brother’s best trousers and asked how they looked. Alletta replied with contempt “The clothes are well enough but they are on a very bad man just now!”
