In Memory of
Colonel JOHN BUTTRICK,
who commanded the Militia Companies
which made the first attack upon
the British Troops,
at Concord North Bridge,
on 19th April 1775.
Having, with patriotic firmness,
shared in the dangers which led to
he lived to enjoy the blessings of it,
and died May 16th 1791, aged 60 years.
Having laid down the sword
he resumed the plough with industry;
by the latter to maintain
what the former had won.
The virtues of the parent, citizen & Christian
adorned his life;
and his worth was acknowledged by
the grief and respect,
of all ranks,
at his death.
