Monmouth Battle-Ground

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Battle-ground at Monmouth. This view is from the orchard, upon the site of Wayne’s position when Monckton fell. The old house on the left is the ancient parsonage, occupied, at the time of the battle, by a man named Freeman. Beyond the house, extending right and left, is the place of the morass, now fine meadow land, with a clear stream running through it; and in the extreme distance are seen the slopes and elevations whereon the second division of the American army, under Washington, was drawn up. Upon the rising ground on the extreme right, the British grenadiers were stationed; and two figures in the open field, about fifty yards distant from our point of view, denote the spot where Monckton was killed."—Lossing, 1851
