There was a great battle long ago, yes, so they told him when Smeagol was young, when I was young before teh Precious came. It was a great battle. Tall Men with long swords, and terrible Elves and Orcses shrieking. They fought on th eplain for days and months at the Black Gates. But the Marshes have grown since then, swallowed up the graves; always creeping, creeping.' - The Two Towers.
