This reconstruction is one of two small outworks that were built to provide forward protection for the much larger Balcarres Redoubt. The knoll derives its name from the many casualties suffered in this area during the fighting of October 7, 1777.

Inset Marker:
In the heated rage of battle occurring here on October 7, 1777, this small British outpost was captured by American soldiers. Their gain came with great losses, and with the deep frustration of being unable to capture the Balcarres Redoubt, just a short distance away.
