The Battle of Barren Hill

Outnumbered eight to one by 16,000 British Troops, the Marquis de Lafayette staged a fake attack by the colonialists in the cemetery of this church that tricked the British until the colonialists could escape. See the Phila. Inquirer, 9/6/11 at B1, and the Norristown Times Herald of 9/1/11.
