This monument is erected to commemorate the sacrifice of the lives of Sixteen Soldiers who were massacred July, 1758, by a band of hostile Indians in the park which was then only a path in the wilderness.
The sixteen soldiers, with a teamster, a certain John Quackendoss of Albany, N.Y. who through the intervention of an Indian Squaw escaped the cruel death, were securely bound and seated on the trunk of a fallen tree. In this helpless condition they were put to death by one of the Indians armed with a tomahawk.
