In this publication, Robert E. Cray revisits the conflict referred to as "Lovewell's struggle" and makes use of it to light up the topics of warfare, loss of life, and reminiscence in early New England. He indicates how an army operation plagued from the outset via bad decision-making, and extra marred through less-than-heroic battlefield habit, got here to be remembered as early America's model of the Alamo. the govt. of Massachusetts bestowed payouts, pensions, and land on survivors and widows of the conflict, whereas early chroniclers drafted a grasp narrative for later generations to emboss. William Henry Longfellow, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau stored the tale alive for later generations. even though a few nineteenth-century New Englanders disapproved of Lovewell's notoriety as a scalp hunter, it didn't hinder the commitment of a monument in his honor on the Fryeburg, Maine, battlesite in 1904.
Even because the real tale of "Lovewell's struggle" receded into obscurity―a bloody skirmish in a principally forgotten war―it remained a part of New England lore, a type of infrequent army encounters during which defeat transcends an opponent's victory to imagine the mantle of legend.
