1793.1 Engraving Shows Game with Wickets at Dartmouth College

Tags:

College

Location:

New Hampshire

Game:

Cricket

A copper engraving showing Dartmouth College appeared in Massachusetts Magazine in February 1793. It is the earliest known drawing of the College, and shows a wicket-oriented game being played in the yard separating college buildings. College personnel suggest is an early form of cricket, given the tall wicket which is not known for the New England pastime of wicket.
