Where

Below this monument in Goshen, New York lies the remains of those killed at the Battle of Minisink on July 22, 1779. For 43 years, their bones had remained on the remote battlefield where they died before finally being moved here in 1822. The 48 killed were part of a mostly inexperienced colonial militia who had quickly assembled in order to stop Mohawk leader Joseph Brant and his Tory/Iroquois raiding party after their recent attack had left Port Jervis in ruins. Nearly half of the colonial militia were killed with the rest forced to retreat.
