In March, 1781, he re-enlisted in the Continental Army for three years even at a time when there were revolts among the troops because the soldiers had not only seen no pay for months, but were receiving only about an eighth of the regular ration of meat.

He was a member of the Continental Army when it was disbanded by Congress, Oct. 18, 1783.

At the close of the war Hezekiah Peters Allen settled in Bowdoinham, Maine, where he died in 1826, leaving numerous descendants.
