Iron Works Hill
Most Americans, to the extent they are knowledgeable about the basics of the Revolutionary War, can name, perhaps, a handful of battles. The war consisted of thousands of skirmishes, most not rising to the level of "battle" nomenclature, but often just as significant and as bloody. As we walk the ground of these lesser known places, it is good to remember that such places as well are places where men died, on both sides, in this war. One such place is in Mount Holly, otherwise known as the Battle of Iron Works Hill. Here we are looking up at the battlefield from the current road.
