Luther B. Lincoln (1802-1855), principal of Deerfield Academy, wrote a speech to honor the opening of the Bloody Brook monument in 1838. Lincoln described the events of September 18, 1675, when Native Americans attacked a group of farmers and soldiers under the command of Capt. Thomas Lathrop (c.1610-1675) during King Phillip's War. In addition to praising the bravery and sacrifice of the colonists, the speech also praised the bravery of Wampanoag Chief, Metacom or King Philip. Lincoln also noted that many people do not know their own history and had been walking on the ancient bones of the battle's victims.
