Dedicated to the memory of
Brigadier General Enoch Poor
by the New Jersey Society
of the Sons of the American Revolution:
Born at Andover, Mass., June 21, 1736;
Died near Hackensack, N.J., Sept. 8, 1780.
In command of a New Hampshire brigade, he rendered signal service at many battles, especially Stillwater, Saratoga, Newtown and Monmouth. Valley Forge witnessed his courage in its privation and his unselfishness in providing for the comfort of his soldiers.
He secured the respect of all who were under his command, gained for all time, the esteem of his fellow officers, and the confidence of Washington and La Fayette.
He won fame, as soldier, patriot and citizen, which has inspired the descendants of Revolutionary sires to rear this memorial of his virtues.
