Battle of GreenfieldsBattle of Greenfields (2747 T.A.) - "The last battle, before this story opens, and indeed the only one that had ever been fought within the borders of the Shire, was beyond living memory: the Battle of Greenfields, S.R. 1147, in which Bandobras Took routed an invasion of Orcs." ~The Fellowship of the Ring (Prologue)


"...even to Old Took's great-grand-uncle Bullroarer, who was so huge (for a hobbitt) that he could ride a horse.  He charged the ranks of the goblins of Mount Gram in the Battle of the Green Fields, and knocked their king Golfimbul's head clean off with a wooden club." ~The Hobbit, chap. 1 (An Unexpected Party)
