The Historical Record on the Battle of Battle of Chelsea Creek and Noddle's Island


East Boston historian Michael A. Laurano, at the Brigadier General John Stark memorial statue at the Battle of Bennington Monument in Bennington, VT.

“On the 27th of May, 1775 the then Colonel Stark led a detachment of Massachusetts and New Hampshire volunteers to drive off the live-stock from Hog and Noddle’s Islands (Orient Heights and East Boston), crossing from Chelsea at ebb tide when the waters in the creek between Chelsea and Hog Island was fordable.

The provincials were fired upon by the British and a heated skirmish followed that culminated in the burning of the HMS Diana and the capture of her cannon by the Colonials after the schooner ran aground near the Winnisimmet ferry-ways…. Ten days before the battle of Bunker Hill all of the buildings on Noddle’s Island (East Boston) were burned by the order of Colonel Stark 'lest they should be taken possession of by the British forces from the ships in the harbor, to afford them shelter and an eligible position for commanding the town...'”
