This is a report of action in the town of Northfield, Massachusetts, late on a Monday in April. Men sympathetic to the Regulators had assembled on the west side of the Connecticut River, fired guns, and beat drums. The major body of people in town would have been on the east side of the river. When some of the men from the west side crossed the river in boats, one of them was found to be Moses Dickenson, Jr., who had been tried for treason for his part at Springfield, and had been found not guilty.
