It seemed As if the very earth again Grew quick with God's creating breath; And, from the sods of grove and glen, Rose ranks of lion-hearted men To battle to the death. The number belonging to Medford who were killed on that day is not known. A worthy old man told us that lie knew of four who fell: William Polly and Henry Putnam, at Concord; and a man named Smith, and another named Francis, in West Cambridge.

It was built by Mr. Benjamin Parker, town-treasurer, as early as 1745, and was sold by him to Hezekiah Blanchard, who added a large dancing-hall to it, and called it Union Hall. He left it to his son Hezekiah, who continued it a tavern till his death. The fourth tavern was at the foot of Rock Hill, at the West End, and sometimes called the Rock Hill Tavern.
