During King Philip's War, Native Americans ambushed a group of teamsters and soldiers in present-day South Deerfield, Massachusetts, on September 18, 1675. Over forty of the colonists, including their commander Capt. Thomas Lathrop (c.1610-1675), were killed in what has become known as the Bloody Brook massacre. To consecrate the memory of the slain, local citizens erected a large marble monument in 1838 near the site of the attack. Writers such as John Warner Barber, who described the monument and the historical event it commemorates, helped create interest in the antiquities of New England.
