(Inscription on front of Monument)
Near this spot was fought, on the afternoon of Friday, the third day of July,
1778,
THE BATTLE OF WYOMING
In which a small body of patriotic Americans, chiefly the undisciplined, the
youthful and the aged, spared, by inefficiency, from the distant ranks of the
Republic led by Col. Zebulon Butler and Col. Nathan Denison, with a courage that
deserved success, boldly met and bravely fought a combined British, Tory and
Indian force, of thrice their number. Numerical superiority alone gave success
to the invader, and wide-spread havoc, desolation and ruin, marked his savage
and bloody footsteps through the Valley.
THIS MONUMENT
commemorative of these events, has been erected over the bones of the slain, By
their descendants, and others, who gratefully appreciated the services and
sacrifices of their patriotic ancestors.
