I just heard from the sculptor, Michael Keropian, that the town of Fishkill, N.Y. is funding his monument to Sachem Daniel Nimham, the Wappinger leader who was killed in the American Revolution by British troops in today’s Van Cortlandt Park. This happened during a skirmish or battle that goes by several names: The Stockbridge Indian Massacre or The Battle of Kingsbridge or the Battle of Cortlandt’s Woods.
Below are some photos of the sculptor’s work:
