Capt. John Gallup died in the battle of the Great Swamp Fight and is buried in a Mass Grave in the vicinity of this boulder.

There is a memorial monument to him and his wife at the Whitehall Cemetery in Mystic, CT and a huge monument to those who died is located deep in the woods off Rt. 2 in RI.

I knew there was another monument to him and here it is located near Smith's Castle.

The Sundial is a great way to think about how long ago this was!
