Other nearby markers. At least 8 other markers are within 2 miles of this marker, measured as the crow flies. Soldiers of the American Revolution (approx. 0.6 miles away); Riverside Cemetery (approx. 0.6 miles away); a different marker also named Soldiers of the American Revolution (approx. 0.6 miles away); Site of First Church in Chemung Valley (approx. 1.1 miles away); Chemung (approx. 1.3 miles away); Line Occupied - Rifle Corps (approx. 1˝ miles away); Line of Rude Breastworks (approx. 1.7 miles away); Newtown Battlefield (approx. 1.7 miles away).
The marker states it was erected in 1929, but it appeared that the marker was only placed here recently and the plaques were polished. I am guessing the marker was moved to this location due to the recent construction of Interstate 86 and realignment of the local roads.
