October 7, 1777As the action of October 7 developed, the British right and left flanks began to break under the American attack. General Simon Fraser was mortally wounded a few yards northwest of here (to your left) while trying to rally the British 24th Regiment. General Learned's Brigade, now led by Benedict Arnold, drove back the Germans in the center. The withdrawal became general as Burgoyne's troops fell back to their fortifications on Freeman Farm.
