Saving the changes incident upon the clearing and cultivation of contiguous land- the place could be easily identified as the battlefield, even if its location were not put beyond question by traditions and also by relics found from time to time upon the place. It is now, as then, an island of four or five actes, surrounded by swampy land, overflowed except in the dryest part of the year.

The island was cleared and plowed about 1775, and at that time many bullets were found deeply bedded in the large trees- quantities of charred corn were plowed up in different places, and it is said that Dutch spoons and Indian arrowheads, etc., have been found here at different times.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
