The site where hundreds of Indians and Tories ambushed Lt. Thomas Boyd's scouting party. On Monday, September 13, 1779, at least 15 soldiers and an Indian guide were slain and several escaped. Lt. Boyd and Michael Parker were captured and taken to Little Beard's Town in Cuylerville. In 1901 a fourteen foot granite monument was erected to honor the soldiers.
