Revolutionary War General. In 1759 he joined the Connecticut militia for the French and Indian War and was soon commissioned as an Ensign. He was quickly promoted to Lieutenant and became Adjutant of his regiment in 1761. Enos was promoted to First Lieutenant in 1762 and served in the British expedition against Cuba during the Seven Years War. In 1764 he was promoted to Captain in Israel Putnam's regiment. At the start of the Revolution, Enos was appointed the 22nd Regiment's Lieutenant Colonel for Benedict Arnold's 1775 Canada expedition. Enos and his soldiers left the struggling expedition in October due to a shortage of food, and marched home through the Maine wilderness. Enos was tried for "quitting without leave", acquitted and returned to service as Lieutenant Colonel of the 16th Regiment. He resigned in 1776 and moved to Windsor, Vermont, where he was appointed Colonel in command of a regiment. In the 1780s he was a proprietor of the towns of Waitsfield and Enosburg. In 1781 he was appointed Brigadier General and commander of the Vermont militia. When Vermont reorganized its militia, Enos was appointed commander and Major General of its 1st Division. In 1791 he relocated to Colchester and resigned his commission. Enos was a Member of the Vermont Board of War from 1781 to 1792, served in the Vermont House of Representatives, and was a Trustee of the University of Vermont. He was the father in law of Ira Allen, one of the founders of Vermont. (bio by: Bill McKern)
