1838

On this Ground Capt. Thomas Lathrop and eighty four men under his command, including eighteen teamsters from Deer field, conveying stores from that town to Hadley, were ambuscaded by about 700 Indians, and the Captain and seventy six men slain, September 18th 1675. (old style)

The soldiers who fell, were described by a contemporary Historian, as "a choice Company of young men, the very flower of the County of Essex none of whom were ashamed to speak with the enemy in the gate."

"And Sanguinetto tells you where the dead
Made the earth wet and turned the unwilling waters red."

"The Same of the slain is marked by a Stone slab, 21 rods southerly of this monument."
