Hancock Memorial

On a frigid morning in March of 1778, during the American Revolutionary War, the Hancock House in Salem County, New Jersey was the site where more than thirty local militia men were ambushed and brutally murdered by British soldiers. This image, memorial, was originally uploaded by Ben McLeod. It is posted here from flickr favorites. Linked at Mudville Gazette's "Open Post".
