      Reference is Lt. Gov. Dinwiddies May, 1757 letter to Col. Washington
      referring to batmen and a footnote below indicates that a 1810 Duane's Military
      Dictionary also uses the word bawman, which phonetically could be spelled as
      bowman. This interpretation would fit in with the quote Patrick originally posted
      and what most list members have summized already.
