History

Bernardston is the primary city name, but also Leyden are acceptable city names or spellings. The official name is Bernardston, Massachusetts. Falls Fight Township was established in 1738. It was named for the Battle of Turner's Falls, a major battle in the American Revolution. The first settlers were soldiers who had fought in the battle. The town was named after the town of Falls, Massachusetts, where the battle was fought in 1676. It is located on the Massachusetts Turnpike, which was once part of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The name Falls Fight comes from the name of a town in Massachusetts, which became a part of Massachusetts in the 17th century. It means "Falls" in English, and "Fight" in Spanish, which means "to fight" or "to defend" in both English and Spanish. The word "flesh" means "wood" and "fire" in the English language, and refers to the use of fire in the construction of the town's first homes. It also means "fence" in French, which is used to refer to the building of the first homes in the town, which were built in 1737. The original name of the township was "Fell's Fight" and it means "the place where the Indians fought". It is now known as Falls Fight, after the battle that took place in which the town was founded in 1776, and was called "Flanders" by the residents. The current name is "Flaming Fight" because of the location of the battle, which took place at the top of a hill. It has been known as "Falling Fight" since the early 1800s, when it was first established.

Pre-war frontier defenses

Burke built a stockade fort that stood "six rods on each side" (6 rods being about 100 feet) The fort contained eight homes, protecting the settlement during Indian attacks beginning in 1745 and later the French and Indian War. In 1746 an attack was made on this fort by a large force of Indians, and, although there were in the fort only two men besides Maj. Burke, the Indians were beaten off with the loss of two of their number. Lieut. Ebenezer Sheldon was famous as an Indian-fighter, and was known far and near as the "Old Indian-Hunter". In 1747, Eliakim Sheldon was shot by the Indians while he was walking near his father's house. At the same time a band of Indians attempted to destroy Deacon Elisha Sheldon's house on Huckle Hill, but were routed byLieut. Sheldon, who appeared on the scene with aid just in time. The fort was later destroyed by the French in 1754, but not before it was used as a base of operations by the U.S. Army in the American Civil War of the early 1800s. It was built at a cost of $1,000,000 and had a total of eight homes. The walls of the fort stood 12 feet high behind which the inhabitants in the vicinity repaired every night during the periods of Indian troubles. It is now in the hands of the descendants of the Sheldon family. It has been restored to its original condition.
