More about this marker. By December 24, some 2,000 Hessians had been lured south to The Mount in Mount Holly, where they engaged in a day-long cannonade with rebel forces occupying Iron Works Hill on the far side of the town, south of Rancocas Creek. The Americans eavacuated their positions that night and marched to Moorestown.
