Signalled With His Gold-Headed Cane

From the Journal of Major Isaac Roach, 1812-1824, published in The Pennsylvania magazine of history and biography, Volume 17:

He [Colonel Moses Porter] gave the signal with his gold-headed cane. Bang! went the shot; and in less than ten minutes by my watch, the blockhouse was on fire. 

See another post from his journal here.  A second post, too.
