1775 ——- 1975

On this hill the Continental militia fought heroically on June 17, 1775. Protected by an earth and timber redoubt laid out by Colonel Richard Gridley, the Army's first chief engineer, the Americans killed or wounded nearly half of the attacking British force. The defenders ran out of gunpowder on the third assault and withdrew.
