2. Death of Lord Howe Marker
Also known as the Battle of Bernetz Brook.
 
Also see . . .  The Death of Lord Howe. "The suddenness of the assault, the terror inspired by the Indian yell, and the grief and astonishment created by the death of Lord Howe, excited a general panic among the British regulars…
But the death of Lord How had depressed the spirit and enfeebled the councils of the army; and to this circumstance its subsequent misfortunes were mainly ascribed."

From the book The History of the United States of North America: From the Plantation of the British Colonies till their Revolt and Declaration of Independence... by James Grahame and published in 1836 by Smith, Elder and Co. (Submitted on March 13, 2008, by Kevin W. of Stafford, Virginia.)
