Cache is located close to Captain Phillips' Rangers Memorial off Route 26, near Saxton, PA.
Be sure to check out the memorial while you are there as it is on the historical register and a beautiful area (especially in the Summer and Fall). Be careful during hunting season. Wearing blaze orange is a good idea when walking in the woods anyway. You can drive right up to the monument, so don't worry about parking along the road.
From the marker that was placed in 1966:
Capt. William Phillips and 11 men of his militia company were captured near this point by Indians, July 16, 1780. Ten men were killed here and were buried later by a search party. Capt. Phillips and son Elijah, taken prisoner, were freed by British at end of Revolution.
The cache is a green .50 caliber ammo box with several white markings on the outside to identify it as a cache.
