Heritage Park is a place where you can quietly imagine the Battle of Rhode Island and the fighting that took place on Turkey Hill. In the action at Turkey Hill, Hessian troops under Captain Von Malburg pursued American Col. Laurens Regiment to Turkey Hill. Laurens men took up a strong defensive position on top of Turkey Hill. American and Hessian units engaged on Turkey Hill before the Americans fell back to Butts Hill and the Hessians had secured Turkey Hill.
