The Battle of Cavern Hill was an engagement between British and Patriot forces that occurred on August 9, 1775, at Cavern Hill, Maine, in the United States during the Revolutionary War. A British force led by General Jonathan Sault was defeated by militamen under Josh Hinckley, who chose to fire as the British main force deployed into firing lines. Sault was struck by a bullet and died on the battlefield, as did his subordinate Major Patrick Monahan, whose corpse was found riddled with bullets at a nearby creek. The victory cost the British 67 out of 120 men, while the Patriots lost 36 of 120.
