Hubbardton in Rutland County, Vermont — The American Northeast (New England)
Monument Hill Charge
On the morning of July 7th British troops, in hot pursuit of the American forces, climbed this steep slope to the crest of Monument Hill. Hampered by brush and fallen trees, the British, in their bright red coats, made excellent targets for the Americans positioned near a stone wall along the crest. As the British continued their assault up the hill, the Americans eventually were forced back across the field behind you.
Erected by Hubbardton Battlefield State Historic Park.
