Here lies Buried the Body of
Mr. Daniel Thompson who was
slain in Concord Battle on ye 19th
of April 1775, Aged 40 Years.
Here Passenger confin'd reduc'd to dust,
lies what was once Religious wise & Just.
The cause he engaged did animate him high,
Namely Religion and dear Liberty.
Steady and warm in Liberties defence,
True to his Country, Loyal to his Prince.
Though in his Breast a Thirst for glory fired,
Courageous in his country's cause expired.
Although he's gone his name Embalmed shall be,
and had in Everlasting Memory.
