COLUMBIAN ENGINE Co. 14 - Church St. & Vesey St.
Organized prior to 1783.

Col. Elmer E. Ellsworth was an honorary member of Engine Co. 14, receiving a badge from the company. He had pinned the badge to his uniform on the morning of his death, after which an observer apparently commented that its concave face might deflect a bullet. The Board of the New York Fire Department voted to have the badge presented to Ellsworth's parents. Its present whereabouts are unknown.

Engine 14 had a target shooting organization, the Independence Guards, under A.H. Tyler.
