BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - 300 flags were planted in Delaware Park Monday at one of Buffalo's most historic, yet little known sacred sites.

'The Mound in the Meadow' as it's called is located the center of the Delaware Park gold course, and marks the final resting place for 300 American soldiers from the War of 1812.

"It's important for people to know, to realize the sacrafice that was made almost 200 years ago on this very spot," said Steve Cichon, Parkside historian and author.
