Colonel Ebenezer Francis and his 11th Continental Regiment from Massachusetts encamped along this hilltop on the night of July 6th. To the left, down the hill toward the Selleck cabin, were Seth Warner and his Green Mountain Boys; to the right was the rest of Colonel Nathan Hale's 2nd New Hampshire regiment.

On the morning of July 7th British troops, in hot pursuit of the American forces, climbed this steep slope to the crest of Monument Hill. Hampered by brush and fallen trees, the British, in their bright red coats, made excellent targets for the Americans positioned near a stone wall along the crest. As the British continued their assault up the hill, the Americans eventually were forced back across the field behind you.
