Battle of the Lammoth

arrived in Lammoth. There they were attacked by orcs which had been sent there by Morgoth to attack Fëanor in the rear and they fought their first battle. The Ñoldor were caught off-guard, and Fingolfin's son Argon was slain. Fingolfin and his host pursued the orcs until they were completely destroyed, and then passed into Mithrim as the Moon first rose.[1]
