Near this site in July 1775, then part of Berkeley County , Va., two companies of riflemen, led by Captains Hugh Stephenson of Berkeley County and Daniel Morgan of Frederick County, Va. rallied prior to their 600-mile journey to join General George Washington in the defense of Boston Ma. These frontier patriots were among the first to answer the call to arms by the Continental Congress resolution of June 14, 1775, authorizing the raising of 10 companies of riflemen. This was the beginning of what was to become, under the Constitution the United States Army.

Dedicated in ceremony September 17, 1988, during "Constitution Week," by the Honorable John O. Marsh, Jr. Secretary of the Army; Major General John A. Wilson, III, Adjutant General of West Virginia; The Honorable Audrey Egle, Mayor of Shepherdstown; and Mr. Charles Freeland, president of the Shepherdstown Men's Club.
