Eagle Cliff is an excellent view site on a NW shoulder of Red Hill. Beneath The Sleepers is Flat Mt (1 of 2 mts so named, within a mile of each other - this one is not exactly flat); to its right, and a little lower, is Youngs Mt. Beneath that, the hill with the open fields is called Diamond Ledge. Between Passaconaway and Hedgehog is Nanamocomuck, named for the oldest son of famous Chief Passaconaway, and below Hedgehog is Mt Wonalancet, named for a son of the legendary chief who eventually became his successor. Paugus, another Indian name, was the leader of a series of Indian reprisals against the white invaders of the region, which was crushed in 1725 at a battle on the shores of Ossipee Lake in what was called Lovewell's War, named for Captain Lovewell, the leader of the colonist's forces. There was no immediate winner in this fierce fight, in which both leaders, Paugus for the indians and Capt. Lovewell for the colonists, were killed. Both sides lost many men, but the Indian forces suffered most seriously- enough so that they withdrew from their former village site somewhat north of Ossipee Lake and fled to Canada, never to return to live in NH.
