Around 500 people attend ceremonies on July 4 commemorating the 239th anniversary of the Battle and Massacre of Wyoming. On July 3, 1778, more than 300 patriots were massacred in a battle with British and Indian forces. Many were killed while they attempted to retreat. The ceremony is held every year at the site of the Wyoming Monument.
