The Illustrious Patriot

“We visited the tomb of the illustrious Hampden and the field on which that patriot fell” (150).

John Hampden was an English patriot central to the English Revolution. The field on which he “fell” is Chalgrove Field, where he and his forces ambushed a small army. Hampden was mortally wounded during the battle and died a few days later, coincidentally on his wedding anniversary.
