The Battle of Locust Ridge
On August 2, 1784, a battle was fought here in the 3rd Yankee-Pennamite War. After a brutal winter, the Yankee Settlers were forcibly pushed from their homes in the Wyoming Valley by the Pennsylvania Militia. As a result, a battle of the campaign to rid the region of Connecticut settlers was fought. The grave of Jacob Everett, the only mortally wounded casualty of the battle, is located nearby on the ridge.
