Minute Man Nat'l Hist Park, Mass

An increasingly ragged British column fought its way over Fiske Hill. There was intense, close quarter fighting in this area as British flankers attempted to flush out Colonial snipers. At a nearby well, Minute Man James Hayward from Acton and a British soldier shot each other at close range. Another British Redcoat, out of ammunition, handed over his weapon and surrendered.

The British column passed through here, leaving behind several wounded soldiers. Ebenezer Fiske's cousin, Dr. Joseph Fiske, treated them in the parlor of Ebenezer's house, which stood on the foundation before you. Despite Dr. Fiske's efforts, the soldiers died and were buried on Ebenezer's property.
