    Nathaniel Richardson passed his life in Woburn, Massachusetts and was made
    freeman in 1690. In the great Indian War, known as "King Philip's War," he was
    a soldier in Captain Prentiss' troop of horse, and was wounded in the "Great
    Swamp Fight," 19 December 1675. Seven other Woburn men, Eliah Tottingham,
    Celeb Simonds, Zachariah Snow, Lieut. John Wyman, John Baker, Francis Wyman,
    Jr. and Peter Bateman were wounded in that tremendous encounter, and John
    Wyman, Jr., a son of Lieut. John Wyman, Francis Wyman, Jr., and Peter Bateman
    died a few weeks after, probably from wounds then received. Six brave captains
    fell in the action, and eighty men were killed or mortally wounded. Four
    hundred were disabled besides the wounded. But t\of the Indians seven hundred
    warriors out of four thousand fell that day, and three hundred more died of
    their wounds or perished from the cold.
