The Battle of Turkey Thicket was inspired by a small memorial plaque bolted to the interior wall of St. Edmond's Catholic Church in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. I first noticed it around 1995. The plaque is the only one of its kind in the entire church, placed under the 14th station of the cross. Over the years, I sifted through the Internet and found the story - and the people - behind the memorial. There was more to it than I had ever imagined.
