Luther B. Lincoln (1802-1855), principal of Deerfield Academy, wrote a scholarly address to commemorate the dedication of the Bloody Brook monument in 1838. Lincoln described the events of September 18, 1675, when Native Americans ambushed a group of teamsters 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 is notable for paying tribute to the valor of Wampanoag Chief, Metacom or King Philip. Lincoln also notes that many of his fellow citizens are ignorant their own history and had been treading on the ancient bones of the battle's victims.
