account by Private Foster –
short but sharp contest ensued, at which the enemy received more deadly injury,
than at any one place from Concord to Charlestown.Eight or more of their number were killed on the
spot, and no doubt, many wounded.The
enemy soon retreated under a scattering fire, in which one of their musicians
fell.”(quoted in Samuel Adams Drake).
Heroes of the Battle Road –
few rods beyond the Hartwell Tavern another grenadier fell, on the green grass
before a pair of bars.”The caption to

two Hartwell Houses.
