This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search 

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and to make it universally accessible and useful. Google Book Search helps readers 
discover the world's books while helping authors and publishers reach new audiences. You can search through the full text of this book on the web

WILLIAMSON'S EXPEDITION, (a.) 



[The causes which led to the expedition of the Washington 
militia against the Moravian Indians on the Muskingum, were 
the frequent murderous marauds by either these or their savage 
allies whom they harbored. History has frequently repeated 
the story of Gnadenhtttten, where the innocent suffers for the 
guilty. It is not our purpose to extenuate or censure the 
Pioneers of Western Pennsylvania, who in their efforts to se- 
cure peaceful homes, found the necessity to exterminate the 
red man prowling on the frontiers. The list of men who were 
upon the expedition is far from complete, as there were at least 
a force of one hundred and sixty men under the lead of the 
brave Williamson.]

THE WESTMORELAND RESOLVES, (a.) 



[The Records of the "Committee of Inspection" for the 
County of Westmoreland are not to our knowledge in existence, 
having propably been destroyed in the .Burning of Hannastown, 
in July, 1782. These patriotic Resolves, however, have been 
preserved owing to the fact that they appeared in the Philadel- 
phia newspapers of the day, as the sentiment of the brave and 
undaunted frontiersmen in Western Pennsylvania.] 



At a general meeting of the inhabitants of the County of 
Westmoreland, held at Hanna's Town the 16th day of May, 
1775, for taking into consideration the very alarming situation 
of this Country, occasioned by the dispute with* Great Britain: 

Resolved unanimously, That the Parliament of Great Britain, 
by several late Acts, have declared the inhabitants mot the 
Massachusetts-Bay to be in rebellion, and the Ministry, by 
endeavoring to enforce those Acts, have attempted to reduce 
the said inhabitants to a more wretched state of slavery than 
ever before existed in any state or county. Not content with 
violating their constitutional and chartered privileges, they 
would strip them of the rights of humanity, exposing lives to 
the wanton and unpunishable sport of a licentious soldiery, and 
depriving them of the very means of subsistence. 

Resolved unanimously, That there is no reason to doubt but 
the same system of tyranny and oppression will (Should it meet 
with success in the Massachusetts-Bay) be extended to every 
other part of America; it is therefore become the indispensl- 
ble duty of every American, of every man who has any pub- 
lick virtue or love for his Country, or any compassion for 
posterity, by every means which God has put in his power, to 
resist and oppose the execution of it; that for us we will be 
ready to oppose it with our lives and fortunes. And the bet- 
ter to enable us to accomplish it, we will immediately form 
ourselves into a military body, to consist of companies to be 
made up out of the several Townships under the following 
Association, which is declared to be the Association of West- 
moreland County. 

Possessed with the most unshaken loyalty and fidelity to 
His Majesty, King George the Third, whom we acknowledge 



COUNTY OF WESTMORELAND. 263 

to be our lawful and rightful King, and who we wish may long 
be the beloved Sovereign of a free and happy people through- 
out the whole British Empire; we declare to the world, that 
we do not mean by this Association to deviate from that loy- 
alty which we hold it our bounden duty to observe; but ani- 
mated with the love of liberty, it is no less our duty to main- 
tain and defend our just rights (which, with sorrow, we have 
seen of late wantonly violated in many instances by a wicked 
Ministry and a corrupted Parliament), and transmit them en- 
tire to our posterity, for which purpose we do agree and asso- 
ciate together. 

1st To arm and form ourselves into a Regiment or Regi- 
ments, and choose officers to command us in such proportion 
as shall be thought necessary. 

2d. We will, with alacrity, endeavor to make ourselves mas- 
ters of the manual exercise, and such evolutions as may be nec- 
essary to enable us to act in a body with concert; and to that 
end we will meet at such times and places as shall be appointed 
either for the Companies or the Regiment, by the Officers com- 
manding each when chosen. 

3d. That should our Country be invaded by a foreign enemy, 
or should troops be sent from Great Britain to enforce the late 
arbitrary Acts of its Parliament, we will cheerfully submit to 
military discipline, and to the utmost of our power resist and 
oppose them, or either of them, and will coincide with any 
plan that may be formed for the defence of America in gen- 
eral, or Pennsylvania in particular. 

4th. That we do not wish or desire any innovation, but only 
that things may be restored to, and go on in the same way as 
before the era of the Stamp Act, when Boston grew great, and 
America was happy. As a proof of this disposition, we will 
quietly submit to the laws, by which we have been accustomed 
to be governed before that period, and will, in our several or 
associate capacities, be ready when called on to assist the civil 
magistrate in carrying the same into execution. 

5th. That when the British Parliament shall have repealed 
their late obnoxious Statutes, and shall recede from their 
claim to tax us, and make laws for us in every instance, or 
when some general plan of union and reconcilation has been 
formed and accepted by America, this our Association shall be 
dissolved; but till then it shall remain in full force; and to 
the observation of it, we bind ourselves by everything dear 
and sacred amongst men. 

No licensed murder! No famine introduced by law!

NARRATIVES OF THE EXPEDITION, (a.) 



[The following narratives of two of the survivors of Craw- 
ford's Expedition to Sandusky were given to the public shortly 
after the return of the narrators. It is deemed perfectly pro- 
per to reproduce them in connection with the preceding. That 
of Dr. Knight was written by himself, that of Slover as related 
by him was taken down by H. Brackenridge.] 



NARRATIVE OF DR. KNIGHT. 



About the latter end of the month of March or the beginning 
of April, of the present year (1782), the western Indians began 
to make incursions upon the frontiers of Ohio and Washing- 
ton, Toughiogany and Westmoreland counties, which has been 
their constant practice ever since the commencement of the 
present war between the United States and Great Britain. 

In consequence of these predatory invasions, the principal 
officers of the above mentioned counties, namely: Colonels 
Williamson and Marshall, tried every method in their power 
to set on foot an expedition against the Wyandot towns, which 
they could effect no other way than by giving all possible en- 
couragement to volunteers. The plan proposed was as follows: 
Every man furnishing himself with a horse, a gun, and one 
month's provisions, should be exempt from two tours of militia 
duty. Likewise, that every one who had been plundered by 
the Indians, should, if the plunder could be found at their 
towns, have it again, proving it to be his property, and all 
horses lost on the expedition by unavoidable accident were 
to be replaced by horses tafcen in the enemy's country. 

The time appointed for the rendezvous, or the general meet- 
ing of the volunteers, was fixed to be on the 20th of May, and 
the place, the old Mingo town, on the west side of the river 
Ohio, about forty miles below Fort Pitt, by land; and I think 
about seventy-five by water. 

Col. Crawford was solicited by the general voice of these 
western counties and districts to command the expedition. He 
accordingly set out as a volunteer, and came to Fort Pitt two 
days before the time appointed for the assembling of the men. 



364 ASSOCIATORS AND MILITIA. 

As there was no Surgeon yet appointed to go with the ex- 
pedition, Col. Crawford begged the favor of Gen. Irvine to per- 
mit me to accompany him, (my consent having been previously 
asked), to which the General agreed, provided Col. Gibson did 
not object. 

Having obtained permission of the Col., I left Fort Pitt on 
Tuesday, May 1st, and the next day about one in the afternoon, 
arrived at .the Mingo bottom. 

The volunteers had not all crossed the river until Friday 
morning, the 24th, they then distributed themselves into eigh- 
teen companies, choosing their captains by vote. There were 
chosen also, one Col. Commandant, four field and one brigadier 
Major. There were four hundred and sixty-five that voted. 

We began our march on Saturday, May 25th, making almost a 
due West course, and on the fourth day reach the old Moravian 
town, upon the river Muskingum, about 60 miles from the river 
Ohio. Some of the men having lost their horses on the night 
preceding, returned home. 

Thursday, the 28th, in the evening, Major Brinton and Cap- 
tain Bane, went some distance from camp to reconnoitre; hav- 
ing gone about one-quarter of a mile they saw two Indians, 
upon Whom they fired, and then retreated to camp. This was 
the first place in which we were discovered, as we understood 
afterwards. 

On Thursday, the 1th of June, which was the eleventh day 
of our march, about one o'clock we came to the spot where the 
town of Sandusky formerly stood; the inhabitants had moved 
18 miles lower down the creek nearer the lower Sandusky; but 
as neither our guides or any who were with us had known any 
thing of their removal, we began to conjecture there were no 
Indian towns nearer than the lower Sandusky, which was at 
least forty miles distant. 

However, after refreshing our horses we advanced in search 
of some of their settlements, but had scarcely got the distance 
of three or four miles from the old town when a number of 
our men expressed their desire to return, some of them alleging 
that they had only five days' provisions; upon which the field 
Officers and Captains, determined in council, to proceed that 
afternoon and no longer. 

Previous to the calling of this Council, a small party of Light 
Horse to reconnoitre, I shall here remark by the way that 
there are a great many extensive plains in that country. The 
woods in general grow very thin and free from brush and 
underbrush; so that light horsemen may advance a consider*- 



COUNTY OF WESTMORELAND. 366 

ble .distance before an army without being much exposed to 
the enemy. 

.Just as the council, decided, an express returned from the 
above mentioned party of light horse with intelligence that 
they had been about, three miles in front, and had seen a large 
body of Indians running, towards them. In a short time we 
saw the rest ol the light horse, who joined us, and haying gone 
one mile further, met a number of Indians who had partly got 
possession of a piece of woods before us, whilst we were in the 
plains; but our men alighting from their horses and. rushing 
Into the woods, soon obliged them to abandon that place.. 

The enemy being by this time reinforced, flanked .to the 
right, and part of them coming in nearer, quickly made the 
action more serious. The firing continued very warm on both 
aides from four o'clock until the dusk of the evening; each 
partly maintaining their ground. Next morning about pix 
o'clock their guns were discharged, at the distance, of two. or 
three hundred yards, which continued till day, doing little or 
no execution on jeither side. 

The field officers then assembled and agreed, as the enemy 
were every moment increasing, and we had already a, number 
of wounded, to. retreat that night. The whole body was to 
form into three lines, keeping the wounded in the centre. 
We had four killed and twenty-three wounded, of the latter, 
seven very dangerously, on which account as many biers were 
got ready to carry them; most of the rest were slightly 
wounded and none so bad but they could ride on horseback. 
After dark the officers went on the out posts and brought, in all 
the . men as expeditiously as they could. Just as the .troops 
were about to form, several guns were fired by the enemy, 
upon which some of our men spoke out and said our intention 
was discovered by the Indians who were firing alarm guns. 
Upon which some in front hurried off and the rest immediately 
followed, leaving the seven men that were dangerously 
wounded, some of whom however got off on horseback,, by 
means of some good friends, who waited for, and assisted tfcem. 

We had not got a quarter of a mile from the field of action 
when I heard Col. Crawford calling for his son, John Crawford, 
his son-in-law, Major Harrison, Major Rose and William Craw- 
ford, his nephews, upon which I came up and told hta I be- 
lieved they we>re on before us. He asked was that tha- doctor? 
I told him it was. He then replied they, were not in front, .and 
begged of me not to leave him. I promised him I would not 

We then waited and continued, calling for these men till the 



366 ASSOCIATORS AND MILITIA. 

troops had passed us. The Colonel told me his horse had almost 
given out, that he could not keep up with the troops, and wished 
some of his best friends to remain with him. He then ex- 
claimed against the militia for riding off in such an irregular 
manner, and leaving some of the wounded behind, contrary to 
his orders. Presently there came two men riding after us, one 
of them an old man, the other a lad. We enquired if they had 
seen any of the above persons? They answered they had not. 

By this time there was very hot firing before us, and as we 
judged, near where our main body must have been. Our course 
was then nearly Southwest, but changing it, we went north 
about two miles, the two men remaining in company with us. 
Judging ourselves to be now out of the enemy's lines, we took 
a due Bast course, taking care to keep at the distance of fifteen 
or twenty yards apart, and directing ourselves by the North 
star. 

The old man often lagged behind, and when this was the ease, 
never failed to call for us to halt for him. When we were near 
the Sandusky creek he fell one hundred yards behind, and 
bawled out, as usual, for us to halt. While we were preparing 
to reprimand him for making a noise, I heard an Indian hallo, 
as I thought, one hundred and fifty yards from the man, and 
partly behind him. After this we did not hear the man call 
again, neither did he ever come up to us any more. It was 
now past midnight, and about daybreak Col. Crawford's and 
the young man's horses gave out, and they left them. We 
pursued our journey Eastward, and about two o'clock fell In 
with Capt. Biggs, who had carried Lieut. Ashley from the field 
of action, who had been dangerously wounded. We then 
went on about the space of an hour, when a heavy rain com- 
ing on, we concluded It was best to encamp, as we were encum- 
bered with the wounded officer. We then barked four or five 
trees, made an encampment and a fire, and remained there all 
that night. Next morning we again prosecuted our journey, 
and having gone about three miles found a deer which had been 
recently killed. The meat was sliced from the bones and 
bundled up in the skin, with a tomahawk lying by it We car- 
ried all with us, and in advancing about one mile further, 
espied the smoke of a fire. We then gave the wounded officer 
into the charge of the young man, directing him to stay be- 
hind whilst the Colonel, the Captain and myself walked up as 
cautiously as we could toward the fire. When we came to it, 
we concluded, from several circumstances, some of our people 
had encamped there the preceding night. We then went 



COUNTY OF WESTMORELAND. S67 

about roasting the venison, and when just about to march, ob- 
served one of our men coming upon our tracks. He seemed 
at first very shy, but having called to him, he came up and 
told us he was the person who had killed the deer, but upon 
hearing us come up, was afraid of Indians, hid It in a thicket 
and made off. Upon this we gave him some bread and roasted 
venison, proceeded all together on our journey, and about two 
o'clock came upon the paths by which we had gone out. Capt 
Biggs and myself did not think it safe to keep the road, but 
the Colonel said the Indians would not follow the troops farther 
than the plains, which we were then considerably past. As the 
wounded officer rode Capt. Bigg's horse, I lent the Captain 
mine. The Colonel and myself went about one hundred yards 
in front, the Captain and the wounded officer in the centre, 
and the two young men behind. After we had traveled about 
one mile and a -half, several Indians started up within fifteen 
or twenty steps of the Colonel and me. As we at first discov- 
ered only three, I immediately got behind a large black oak, 
made ready my piece and raised it up to take sight, when the 
Colonel called to me twice not to fire, upon that one of the In- 
dians ran to the Colonel and took him by the hand. 

They were Delaware Indians of the Wingenund tribe. Cap- 
tain Biggs fired amongst them but did no execution. They 
then told us to call these people and make them come there, 
ejse they would go and kill them, which the Colonel did, but 
they forgot us and escaped for that time. The Colonel and I 
were then taken to the Indian camp, which was about half a 
mile from the place where we were captured. On Sunday 
evening five Delawares who had posted themselves at some 
distance further on the rosjd brought back to the camp, where 
we lay, Captain Biggs' and Lieutenant Ashley's scalps, with 
an Indian scalp which Captain Biggs had taken in the field of 
action; they also brought in Biggs' horse and mine, they told 
us the other two men got away from them. 

Monday morning, the tenth of June, we were paraded to 
march to Sandusky, about thirty-three miles distant; they 
had eleven prisoners of us and four scalps, the Indians being 
seventeen in number. 

Col. Crawford was very desirous to see a certain Simon 
Girty, who lived with the Indians, and was on this account 
permitted to go to town the same night, with two warriors to 
guard him, having orders at the same time to pass by the place 
where the Col. had turned out his horse, that they might if 
possible, find him. The rest of us were taken as far as the old 
town which was* within eight miles of the new. 



368 ASSOCIATORS AND MILITIA. 

Tuesday, morning, the eleventh, Colonel Crawford was 
brought out to us on purpose to be marched in with the other 
prisoners. I asked the Col. if he had seen Mr. Girty? He told 
me he had, and that Girty had promised to do every thing in 
his power for him, but that the Indians were very much en-, 
raged against the prisoners; particularly Capt Pipe one of the 
chiefs; he likewise told me that Girty informed him that his 
son-in-law, Col. Harrison and his nephew, William Crawford, 
were made prisoners by the Shawanese, but had been pardoned. 
This Captain Pipe had come from the town about an hour be* 
fore Col. Crawford, and had painted all the prisoners' faces 
black. As he was painting me he told me I should go to the 
Shawanese towns and see my friends. When the Col. arrived 
he painted him black also, told him he was glad to see him 
and that he would have him shaved when he came to see his 
friends at the Wyandot town. When we marched the Col. and 
I were kept back between Pipe and Wingenund, the two Dela- 
ware chiefs, the other nine prisoner* were sent forward with 
another party of Indians. As we went along we saw four of 
the prisoners lying by the path tomahawked and scalped, some 
of them were at the distance of half a mile from each other. 
When we arrived within half a mile of the place where the 
Col. was executed, we overtook the five prisoners that re- 
mained alive; the Indians had caused them to sit down on 
the ground, as they did also the Col. and me at some distance 
from them. I was there given in charge to an Indian fellow 
to be taken to the Shawanese towns. 

In the place where we were now made to sit down there was 
a number of squaws and boys, who fell on the five prisoners and 
tomahawked them. There was * certain John McKlnly 
amongst the prisoners, formerly an officer in the 13th Virginia 
regiment, whose head an old squaw cut off, and the Indians 
kicked it about upon the ground. The young Indian fellows 
came often where the Col. and I were, and dashed the scalps in 
our faces. We, were then conducted along toward the place 
where the Col. was afterwards executed; when we came within 
about half a mile of it, Simon Girty met us, with several In- 
dians on horseback; he spoke to the Col., but as I was about 
one hundred- and fifty yards behind could not hear what passed 
between them. 

Almost every Indian we met struck us either with sticks or 
their fists. Girty waited till I was brought up antf asked, was 
that the doctor? — I told him yes, and went toward him reaching 
out my hand 1 , but he bid me begone and called me a damned 



COUNTY O* WESTMORELAND. 869 

rascal, upon which the fellows who had me in charge palled 
me along. Girty rode up after me and told me I was to go to 
the Shawanese towns. 

When we went to the fire the Col. was stripped naked or- 
dered to sit down by the fire and then they beat him with sticks 
and their fists. Presently after I was treated in the same man- 
ner. They then tied a rope to the foot of a post about fifteen 
feet high, bound the Col's hands behind his back and fastened 
the rope to the ligature between his wrists. The rope was 
long enough for him to sit down or walk around the post once 
or twice and return the same way. The Col. then called to 
Girty and asked if they intended to burn him? — Girty answered, 
yes. • The Col. said he would take it all patiently. Upon this 
Captain Pipe, a Delaware chief, made a speech to the Indians, 
.viz: about thirty or forty men, sixty or seventy squaws and 
boys. 

When the speech was finished they all yelled a hideous and 
hearty assent to what had been said. The Indian men then 
took up their guns and shot powder into the Colonel's body, 
from his feet as far up as his neck. I think not less than sev- 
enty loads were discharged upon his naked body. Then they 
crowded about him, and to the best of my observation, cut off 
his ears; when the throng had dispersed a little I saw the blood 
running from both sides of his head in consequence thereof. 

The fire was about six or seven yards from the post to which 
the Colonel was tied; it was made of small hickory poles, 
burnt quite through in the middle, each end of the poles re 
maining about six feet in length. Three or four Indians by 
turns would take up, individually, one of these burning pieces 
of wood and apply it to his naked body, already burnt black 
with powder. These tormentors presented, themselves on every 
side of him with the burning faggots and poles. Some of the 
squaws took broad boards, upon which they would carry a 
quantity of burning coals and hot embers and throw on him, 
so that in a short time he had nothing but coals of fire and hot 
ashes to walk upon. 

In the midst of these extreme tortures, he called to Simon 
Girty and begged of him to shoot him; but Girty making no 
answer he called to him again. Girty then, by the was of deri- 
sion told the Colonel he had no gun, at the same time turning 
about to an Indian who was behind him. laughed heartly, and 
by all his gestures seemed delighted at the horrid scene. 

Girty then came up to me and bade me prepare for death. 
He said, however, I was not to die at that place, but to be

burnt at the Shawanese towns. He swore by G— d I need not 
expect to escape death, but should suffer it in all its extrem- 
ities. 

He then observed, that some prisoners had given him to un- 
derstand, that if our people had had him they would not hurt 
him; for his part, he said, he did not believe it, but desired 
to know my opinion of the matter, but being at that time in 
great anguish and distress for the torments the Colonel was 
suffering before my eyes, as well as the expectation of under- 
going the same fate in two days, I made little or no answer. 
He expressed a great deal of ill will for Col. Gibson, and said 
he was one of his greatest enemies, and more to the same pur- 
pose to all which I paid very little attention. Col Crawford at 
this period of his sufferings besought the Almighty to have 
mercy on his soul, spoke very low, and bore his torments with, 
the most manly fortitude. He continued in all the extremities 
of pain for an hour and three quarters or two hours longer, as 
near as I can judge, when at least, being almost exhausted he 
lay down on his belly, they then scalped him, and repeatedly 
threw the scalp in my face, telling me "that was my great cap- 
tain." An old squaw (whose appearance every way answered 
the ideas people entertain of the Devil) got a board, took a 
parcel of coals and ashes and laid them on his back and head, 
after he had been scalped, he then raised himself upon his feet 
and began to walk round the post; they next put a burning 
stick to him as usual, but he seemed more insensible of pain 
than before. 

The Indian fellow who had me in charge, now took me away 
to Capt. Pipe's house, about three-quarters of a mile from the 
place of the Colonel's execution. I was bound all night, and 
thus prevented from seeing the last of the horrid spectacle. 
Next morning, being June 12th, the Indian untied me, painted 
me black, and we set off for the Shawanese town, which he 
told me was somewhat less than forty miles from that place. 
We soon came to the spot wher the Colonel had been burnt, as 
it was partly in our way; I saw his bones lying amongst the 
remains of the fire, almost burnt to ashes; I suppose after he 
was dead they laid his body on the fire. 

The Indian told me that was Big Captain, and gave the scalp 
halloo. He was on horseback and drove me before him. 

I pretended to this Indian I was ignorant of the death I was 
to die at the Shawanese towns, assumed as cheerful a counte- 
nance as possible, and asked him if we were not to live to- 
gether as brothers in one house when we should get to the 



COUNTY OF WESTMORELAND. S71 

town? He seemed well pleased, and said yes. He then asked 
me if I could make a wigwam?— I told him I could— he then 
seemed more friendly. We went that day as near as I can 
judge about 25 miles, the course partly Southwest.— The In- 
dian told me we should next day come to the town, the sun 
being in such a direction, pointing nearly South. At night, 
when we went to rest, I attempted very often to untie myself, 
but the Indian was extremely vigilant and scarcely ever shut 
his eyes that night. About daybreak he got up and untied me; 
he next began to mend up the fire, and the gnats were trouble- 
some I asked him If I should make a smoke behind him — he 
said yes. I then took the end of a dogwood fork which had 
been burnt down to about 18 inches long; it was the longest 
stick I could find, yet too small for the purpose I had in view; 
then I picked up another smaller stick and taking a coal of 
fire between them went behind him; then turning suddenly 
about, I struck him on the head with all the force I was master 
of; which so stunned him that he fell forward with both his 
hands into the fire, but seeing him recover and get up, I seized 
his gun while he ran off howling in a most fearful manner. I 
followed him with a determination to shoot him down, but 
pulling back the cock of the gun with too great violence, I be* 
lieve I broke) the main spring. I pursued him, however, about 
thirty yards, still endeavoring to fire the gun, but could not; 
then going back to the fire I took his blanket, a pair of new 
moccasins, his hoppes, powder horn, bullet bag (together with 
the gun), and marched off, directing my course toward the five 
o'clock mark; about half an hour before sunset I came to the 
plains which I think are about sixteen miles wide. I laid me 
down In a thicket till dark, and then by the assistance of the 
North star made my way through them and got into the woods 
before morning. I proceeded on the next day, and about noon 
crossed the paths by which our troops had gone out; •these 
paths are nearly East and West, but I went due North all that 
afternoon with a view to avoid the enemy. 

In the evening I began to be very faint, and no wonder; I 
had been six days prisoner; the last two days of which I had 
eat nothing, and but very little the first three or four; there 
were wild gooseberries in abundance in the woods, but being 
unripe, required mastication, which at that time I was not 
able to perform on account of a blow received from an Indian 
on the jaw with the back of a tomahawk. There was a weed 
that grew plentifully in that place, the juice of which I knew 
to be grateful and nourishing; I gathered a bundle of the 



372 ASSOCIATORS AND MILITIA. 

same, took up my lodging under a large spreading beech tree 
and .having sucked plentifully of the juice, went to sleep. .Ne*.t 
day, I made a due East course which I generally kept the rest 
of my journey. I often imagined my gun was only wood 
bound, and tried every method I could devise to unscrew the 
lock, but never could effect it, , having no knife nor any thing 
fitting for the purpose, I had now the satisfaction to find my 
jaw began to mend, and in four or five days could chew any 
vegetable proper for nourishment, but finding my gun only a 
useless burden, left it in the wilderness. I had no apparatus 
for making fire to sleep by, so that I could get but little rest for 
the gnats and musketoes; there, are likewise a great many 
swamps in. the beech ridge, which occasioned me very often to 
lie wet; this ridge through which I traveled, is about 20 miles 
broad, the ground in general very level and rich, free from 
shrubs and brushes; there are, however, very few springs, yet 
wells might easily be dug in all parts of the ridge; the timber 
on it is very lofty, but it is no easy matter to make a straight 
course through the same, the moss growing as high upon the 
South side of the trees as upon the North. There are a great 
many white oaks, ash and hickory trees that grow among the 
beech timber; there are likewise some places on the ridge, per- 
haps for three or four continued miles where there is little or 
no beech, and in such spots, black, whiteoak, ash and hickouf 
abound. Sugar trees grow there also to a very great bulk— 
the soil is remarkably good, the ground a little ascending and 
descending with some small rivulets and a few springs. When 
I got out of the beech ridge, and nearer the river Muskingum, 
the lands were more broken but equally rich with those 
before mentioned and abounding with brooks and springs 
of water; there are also several small creeks that empty 
into that river, the bed of which is more than a mile 
wide in many places; the woods consist of white and black oak, 
walnut, hickory and sugar trees in the greatest abundance. In 
all parts of the country through which I came the game was 
very plenty, that is to say, deer, turkeys and pheasants; I like- 
wise saw a great many vestiges of bears and some elks. 

I crossed the river Muskingum about three or four miles be- 
low Fort Lawrence, and crossing all paths aimed for the Ohio 
river. All this time my food was gooseberries, young nettles, 
the juice of herbs, a few service berries, and some May apples, 
likewise two young blackbirds and a terrapin, which I de- 
voured raw. When my food sat heavy on my stomach, I used 
to eat a little wild ginger which put all to rights. 

I came upon the Ohio river about five miles below Fort Mc- 



COUNTY OF WESTMORELAND. 378 

Intosh, in the evening of the 21st day after I had made my es- 
cape, and on the 22d about seven o'clock in the morning, being 
the fourth of July, arrived safe, though very much fatigued, 
at the Fort. 



NARRATIVE OF JOHN SLOVER. 



Having in the last war been a prisoner amongst the Indians 
many years, and so being well acquainted with the country 
west of the Ohio, I was employed as a guide in the expedition 
under Col. William Crawford against the Indian towns on or 
near the river Sandusky. It will be unnecessary for me to re- 
late what is so well known, the circumstances and unfortu- 
nate events of that expedition; it will be sufficient to observe, 
that having on Tuesday the fourth of June, fought the enemy 
near Sandusky, we lay that night in our camp, and the next 
day fired on each other at the distance of three hundred yards, 
doing little or no execution. In the evening of that day it was 
proposed by Col. Crawford, as I have since been informed, to 
draw off with order but at the moment of our retreat the In- 
dians (who had probably perceived that we were about to 
retreat) firing alarm guns, our men broke and rode off in con- 
fusion, treading down those who were on foot, and leaving 
the wounded men who supplicated to be taken with them. 

I was with some others on the rear of our troops feeding our 
horses in the glade, when our men began to break. The main 
body of our people had passed by me a considerable distance 
before I was ready to set out. I overtook them before they 
crossed the glade, and was advanced almost in front. The 
company in which I was had separated from me, and had en- 
deavored to pass a morass, for coming up I found their horses 
had stuck fast in the morass, and endeavoring to pass, mine 
also in a short time stuck fast. I ought to have said, the com- 
pany of five or six men with which I had been immediately 
connected, and who were some distance to the right of the 
main body, had separated from me, &c. I tried a long time to 
disengage my horse, until I could hear the enemy just behind 
me, and on each side, but in vain. Here then I was obliged to 
leave him. The morass was so unstable that I was to the mid- 
dle in it, and it was with the greatest difficulty that I got 
across it, but which having at length done, I came up with 



874 ASSOCIATORS AND MILITIA. 

the six men who had left their horses In the same manner I 
had done; two of these, my companions, having lost their 
guns. 

We traveled that night, making our course towards Detroit, 
with a view to shun the enemy, who we conceived to have 
taken the paths by which the main body of our people had re- 
treated. Just before day we got into a second deep morass, and 
were under the necessity of delaying until it was light to see 
our way through it. The whole of this day we traveled 
towards the Shawanese towns, with a view of throwing our- 
selves still farther out of the search of the enemy. About ten 
o'clock this day we sat down to eat a little, having tasted noth- 
ing from Tuesday, the day of our engagement until this time 
which was on Thursday, and now the only thing we had to 
eat was a scrap of pork to each. We had sat down by a war- 
rior's path which we had not suspected, when eight or nine 
warriors appeared. Running off hastily we left our baggage 
and provision, but were not discovered by the party; for skulk- 
ing some time in the grass and bushes, we returned to the 
place and recovered our baggage. The warriors had halooed 
as they passed, and were answered by others on our flanks. 

In our journey through the glades, or wide extended dry 
meadows, about twelve o'clock this day, we discovered a 
party of Indians in front, but skulking In the grass and bushes 
were not perceived by them. In these glades we were in great 
danger, as we could be seen at a great distance, m the after- 
noon of this day there fell a heavy rain, and then traveling on 
we saw a party of the enemy about two hundred yards before 
us, but hiding ourselves in the bushes we had again the good 
fortune not to be discovered. This night we got out of the 
glades, having in the night crossed the paths by which we had 
advanced to Sandusky. 

It was our design to leave all these paths to the right and to 
come in by the Tuscarawas. We would have made a much 
greater progress had it not been for two of our companions, 
who were lame, the one having his foot burned, the other with 
a swelling in his knee of a rheumatic nature. On this day 
which was the second after the retreat one of our company, the 
person affected with the rheumatic swelling was left behind 
some distance in a swamp. Waiting for him some time we 
saw him coming within one hundred yards, as I sat on the 
body of an old tree mending my moccasins, but taking my eye 
from him I saw him no more. He had not observed our tracks, 
but had gone a different way. We whistled on our chargers, 



COUNTY OP WESTMORELAND. 176 

and afterwards halooed for him, but In vain. Nevertheless be 
was fortunate in missing us, for he afterwards came safe into 
Wheeling, which is a post of ours on the Ohio, about 70 miles 
below Fort Pitt. We traveled on until night, and were on the 
waters of the Muskingum from the middle of this day. 

Having caught a fawn this day, we made a fire in the evening 
and had a repast, having in the meantime eat nothing but the 
small bit of pork I mentioned before. We set off at break of 
day. About nine o'clock the third day we fell in with a party 
of the enemy about 12 miles from the Tuscarawas, which is 
about 135 miles from Fort Pitt. They had come upon our 
tracks or had been on our flanks and discovered us, and then 
having got before, had waylaid us, and fired before we per- 
ceived them. At the first fire one of my companions fell .before 
me and another just behind me; these two had guns; there 
were six men in company, and four guns, two of these ren- 
dered useless by reason of the wet when coming through the 
swamp the first night; we had tried to discharge them but 
could not. When the Indians fired I ran to a tree, but an In- 
dian presenting himself fifteen yards before me, directed me to 
deliver myself up and I should not be hurt My gun was in 
good order, but apprehending the enemy behind might discharge 
their pieces at me, I did not risk firing, which I had afterwards 
reason to regret when I found what was to be my fate, and that 
the Indian who was before me and presented his gun was one 
of those who had just before fired. Two of my companions 
were taken with me in the same manner, the Indians assuring 
us we should not be hurt. But one in company, James Paul, 
who had a gun in order, made his escape and has since come 
into Wheeling. One of these Indians knew me, and was of the 
party by whom I was taken in the last war. He came up and 
spoke to me calling me by Indian name, Mannuchothee, and 
upbraiding me for coming to war against them. 

I will take a moment here to relate some particulars of my 
first captivity and my life since. I was taken from New River 
in Virginia by the Miamese, a nation called by us Picts, amongst 
whom I lived six years, afterwards being sold to a Delaware 
and by him put into the hands of a trader. I was carried 
amongst the Shawanese, with whom I continued six years; so 
that my whole time amongst these nations was twelve yean, 
that is, from the eighth to the twentieth year of my age. At 
the treaty of Fort Pitt, in the fall preceding what is called Dwn- 
more's War, which if I am right, was in the year 177S, I came 
in with the Shawanese nation to the treaty, and meeting with 



376 ASSOCIATORS AND MILITIA. 

some of my relations at that place, was by them solicited to re- 
linquish the life of a savage, which I did with some reluctance, 
this manner of life having become natural to me, inasmuch as 
I had scarcely known any other. I enlisted as a soldier in the 
continental army at the commencement of the present war, 
and served fifteen months. Having been properly discharged 
I have since married, have a family and am in communion 
with the church. 

To return, the party by whom we were made prisoners had 
taken some horses, and left them at the glades we had passed 
the day before. They had followed on our tracks from these 
glades, on our return to which we found the horses and rode. 
We were carried to Wachatomakak, a town of the Mingoes and 
Shawanese. I think it was on the third day we reached the 
town, which when we were approaching, the Indians in whose 
custody we were, began to look sour, having been kind to us 
before and given us a little meat and flour to eat, which they 
had found or taken from some of our men in their retreat. 
This town is small and we were told was about two miles dis- 
tant from the main town to which they intended to carry us. 

The inhabitants from this town came out with clubs and tom- 
ahawks, struck, beat and abused us greatly. One of my two 
companions they seized, and having stripped him naked, 
blacked him with coal and water. This was the sign of being 
burnt; the man seemed to surmise it and shed tears. He asked 
me the meaning of his being blacked; but I was forbid by the 
enemy in their own language, to tell him what was Intended. 
In English, which they spoke easily, having been often at Fort 
Pitt, they assured him he was not to be hurt. I know of no 
reason for making him the first object of their cruelty unless 
it was that he was the oldest. 

A warrior had been sent to the great town to acquaint them 
with our coming and prepare them for the frolic; for on our 
coming to it, the inhabitants came out with guns, clubs and 
tomahawks. We were told that we had to run to the council 
house, about three hundred yards. The man that was blacked 
was about twenty yards before us in running the gauntlet. 
They made him their principal object, men, women and chil- 
dren beating him, and those who had guns firing loads of pow- 
der on him as he ran naked, putting the muzzels of the guns 
to his body, shouting, hollooing and beating their drums in the 
meantime. 

The unhappy man had reached the door of the council house, 
beat and wounded in a manner shocking to the sight; for hav- 



COUNTY OF WESTMORELAND. 177 

Ing arrived before him we had in our power to view the specta- 
cle—it was indeed the most horrid that can be conceived. 
They had cut him with their tomahawks; shot his body black, 
burnt it into holes with loads of powder blown into him; a 
large wadding had made a wound in his shoulder whence the 
blood .gushed. 

Agreeable to the declaration of the enemy, when he first set 
out he had reason to think himself secure when he had reached 
the door of the council house. This seemed to be his hope, for 
coming up with great struggling and endeavors, he laid hold 
of the door but was pulled back and drawn away by them; find- 
ing they intended no mercy, but putting him to death, he at- 
tempted several times to snatch or lay hold of some of their 
tomahawks, but being weak could not effect it. We saw him 
borne off, and they were a long time beating, wounding and 
pursuing and killing him. 

That same evening I saw the dead body of this man close by 
the council house. It was mangled cruelly, and the blood 
mingled with the powder was rendered black. The same even- 
ing I saw him after he had been cut to pieces, and his limbs 
and head about two hundred yards on the outside of the town 
put on poles. That evening also I saw the bodies of three 
others in the same black and mangled condition; these I was 
told had been put to death the same day, and just before we 
had reached the town. Their bodies as they lay were black, 
bloody, burnt with powder. Two of these were Harrison (1) and 
young Crawford. (2) I knew the visage of Col. Harrison, and 
I saw his clothing and that of Toung Crawford at the town. 
They brought horses to me and asked if I knew them. I said 
they were Harrison and Crawford's; they said they were. 

The third of these men I did not know, but believe to have 
been Col. McCleland, the third in command on the expedition. 
The next day the bodies of these men were dragged to the out- 
side of the town and their carcases being given to the dogs, 
their limbs and heads, were stuck upon poles. 

My surviving companion shortly after we had reached the 
council house was sent to another town, and I presume, he was 
burnt or executed in the same manner. 

In the evening the men assembled in the council house; this 
is a large building about fifty yards in length, and about 
twenty-five yards wide, and about sixteen feet in height, built 
of spit poles covered with bark; their first object was to exam- 
ine me, which they could do in their own language, inasmuch 
as I could speak the Miami, Shawanese and Delaware Ian- 



378 ASSOCIATORS AN6 MIUTIA. 

guages, which I had learned during my early captivity in the 
last war; I found I had not forgotten these languages, especially 
the two former, as well as my native tongue. 

They began with interrogating me, concerning the situation 
of our country* what were our provisions? our numbers? the 
state of the war between us and Britain? I informed them 
Cornwallis had been taken, which next day, when Matthew 
Billot with James Girty (3) came, he affirmed to be a lie, and 
the Indians seemed to give full credit to his declaration. 

Hitherto I had been treated with some appearance of kind- 
ness, but now the enemy began to alter their behavior towards 
me. Girty had informed them, that when he asked me how I 
liked to live there, I had said that I intended to take the first 
opportunity to take a scalp and run off. It was, to be sure, 
very probable that if I had such intention, I would communi- 
cate it to him. Another man came to me and told me a story 
of his having lived on the south branch of Potomac in Vir- 
ginia, and having three brothers there, he pretended he 
wanted to get away, but I suspected his design; nevertheless 
he reported that I had consented to go. In the meantime I 
was not tied, and could have escaped, but having nothing to* 
put on my feet, I waited some time longer to provide for this. 

I was Invited every night to the war dance, which they 
usually continued until almost day. I could not comply with 
their desire, believing these things to be the service of the 
devil. The council lasted fifteen days; fifty to one hundred 
warriors being usually in council, and sometimes more. Every 
warrior is admitted to these councils, but only the chiefs or 
head warriors have the privilege of speaking. The head war- 
riors are accounted such from the number of scalps they have 
taken. The third day McKee was in council and afterwards 
was generally present He spoke little, and did not ask any 
questions or speak to me at all. He lives about two miles out 
of town, has a house built of square logs with a shingle roof; 
he was dressed in gold lace clothes. I had seen him at the 
former town through which I had passed. I think it was on 
the last day of the council save one that a speech came from 
Detroit, brought by a warrior who had been counselling with 
the commanding officer at that place. The speech had been 
long expected, and was in answer to one some time before 
sent from the town to Detroit It was in a belt of Wampum, 
and began with addressing them, "My children," and inquiring 
why they continue to take prisoners? Provisions are scarce; 
when prisoners are brought in we are obliged to maintain them, 



COUNTY OF WESTMORELAND. 879 

and still some of them are running away and carrying tidings 
of our affairs. When any of your people fall into the hands 
of the rebels, they show no mercy; why then should you take 
prisoners? Take no more prisoners, my children, of any sort; 
man, woman or child. 

Two days after, a party of every nation that was near being 
collected, it was determined on to take no more prisoners of 
any sort They had held a large council, and the determination 
was, that if it were possible they could find a child of a span 
or three inches long, they would show no mercy to it At the 
conclusion of the council it was agreed upon by all the tribes 
present, vis: the Tawaws, Chippawaws, the Wyandots, the 
Mingoes, the Delawares, the Shawanese, Munses, and a part of 
the Cherokees, that should any of the nations who were not 
present take any prisoners, these would rise against them, take 
away the prisoners and put them to death. 

In the course of these deliberations I understood what was 
said perfectly. They laid plans against our settlements of 
Kentucky, the Falls, and towards Wheeling. These it will be 
unnecessary for me to mention in this narrative, more espec- 
ially as the Indians finding me to have escaped, and knowing 
that I would not fail to communicate these designs, will be 
led to alter their resolutions. 

There was one council held at which I was not present. The 
warriors had sent for me as usual, but the squaw with whom I 
lived would not suffer me to go, but hid me under a large 
quantity of skins. It may have been from an unwillingness 
that I should hear in council the determination with respect to 
me, that I should be burnt 

About this time, twelve men were brought in from Kentucky, 
three of whom were burnt on this day; the remainder were dis- 
tributed to other towns, and all, as the Indians informed me, 
were burnt This was after the speech came from Detroit. 

On the day after, I saw an Indian who had just come into 
town, and who said that the prisoners he was bringing to be 
burnt, and who he said was a doctor, had made his escape from 
him. I knew this must have been Dr. Knight, who went as 
surgeon of the expedition. The Indian had a wound four 
inches long in his head, which he acknowledged the doctor 
had given him; he was cut to the skull. His story was that he 
had untied the doctor, being asked by him to do so, the doctor 
promising that he would not go away; that while he was em- 
ployed in kindling the fire the doctor snatched up the gun had 
come behind and struck him; that he then made a stroke at

the doctor with his knife, which he laid hold of, and his fingers 
were cut almost off, the knife being drawn through his hand; 
that he gave the doctor two stabs, one in the back, the other 
in ihe- belly; said the doctor was a great big, tall, strong man. 
Being now adopted in an Indian family, and having some con- 
fidence for my safety, I took the liberty to contradict this and 
said that I knew the doctor, who was a weak, little man. The 
other warriors laughed immoderately, and did not seem to 
credit him. (4.) At this time I was told that Col. Crawford 
was burnt, and they greatly exulted over it 

The day after the council I have mentioned, about forty war- 
riors, accompanied by George Girty, came early in the morn- 
ing round the house where I was. The squaws gave me up, I 
was sitting before the door of the house; they put a rope 
round my neck, tied my arms behind my back, stripped n>* 
naked, and blackened me in the usual manner. George Girty, 

as soon as I was tied, d d me, and said that I now should 

get what I had deserved many years. I was led away to a 
town distant about five miles, to which a messenger had been 
dispatched to desire them to prepare to receive me. 

Arriving at this town, I was beaten with clubs and the pipe 
ends of their tomahawks, and was kept for some time tied to 
a tree before a house door. In the meanwhile the inhabitants 
set out to another town about two miles distant, where I was 
to be burnt, and where I arrived about three o'clock in the 
afternoon. 

Here also was a council house, part of it covered and part 
of it without a roof. In the part of it where no cover was, but 
only sides built up, there stood a post about sixteen feet in 
height, and in the middle of the house around the post, there 
were three piles of wood built about three feet high and four 
feet from the post. 

Being brought to the post my arms were tied behind me, and 
the thong or cord with which they were bound was fastened 
to the post; a rope also was put "about my neck, and tied to 
the post about four feet above my head. During the time they 
were tying me, piles of wood were kindled and began to flame. 

Death by burning, which appeared to be now my fate, I had 
resolved to sustain with patience. The divine grace of God 
had made it less alarming to me; for on my way this day I 
had been greatly exercised in regard to my latter end. I knew 
myself to have been a regular member of the church, and to 
have sought repentance for my sins; but though I had often 
heard of the faith of assurance, had known nothing of it; but 



COUNTY OF WESTMORELAND. ttl 

early this day, instantaneously by a change wrought upon me 
sudden and perceivable as lightning, an assurance of ihy peace 
made with God, sprung up in mind. The following words were 
the subject of my meditation— "In peace thou shalt see God. 
Fear not those who can kill the body. In peace shalt thou de- 
part" I was on this occasion by a confidence in mind not to 
be resisted, fully assured of my salvation. This being the 
case I was willing, satisfied and glad to die. 

I was tied to the post, as I have already said, and the flame 
was now kindled. The way was clear, not a cloud to be seen. 
If there were clouds low in the horizon, the sides of the house 
prevented me from seeing them, but I heard no thunder, or ob- 
served any sign of approaching rain; just as the fire 1 of one 
pile began to blaze, the wind rose, from the time they began 
to kindle the fire and to tie me to the post, until the wind be- 
gan to blow, was about fifteen minutes. The wind blew a hur- 
ricane, and the rain followed in less than three minutes. The 
rain fell violent; and the fire, though it began to blaze con- 
siderably, was Instantly extinguished. The rain lasted about 
a quarter of an hour. 

When it was over the savages stood amazed, and were a long 
time silent At last one said, we will let him alone till morn- 
ing, and take a whole day's frolic in burning him. The sun at 
this time was about three hours high. It was agreed upon, and 
the rope about my neck was untied, and making me sit down, 
they began to dance round me. They continued dancing in this 
manner until eleven o'clock at night; in the meantime, beating, 
kicking and wounding me with their tomahawks and clubs. (5) 

At last one of the warriors, the Half Moon, asked me if I was 
sleepy? I answered, yes. The head warrior then chose out three 
warriors to take care of me. I was taken to a block house; my 
arms were tied until the cord was hid in the flesh, they were 
tied in two places, round the wrist and above the elbows. A 
rope was fastened about my neck and tied to a beam of the 
house, but permitting me to lie down on a board. The three war- 
riors were constantly harassing and troubling me, saying, "How 
will you like to eat fire to morrow — you will kill no more In- 
dians now." I was in expectation of their going to sleep, 
when at length, about an hour before daybreak, two laid down, 
the third smoked a pipe, talked to me and asked the same 
painful questions. About half an hour after, he also laid down; 
I heard him begin to snore. Instantly I went to work, and as 
my arms were perfectly dead with the cord, I laid myself down 
upon my right arm which was behind my back, and keeping

it fast with my fingers, which had still some life and strength, 
I slipped the cord from my left arm over my elbow and my 
wrist. One of the warriors now got up and stirred the fire. I 
was apprehensive that I should be examined, and thought it 
was over with me, but my hopes revived when now he lay 
down again. I then attempted to unloose the rope about my 
neck; tried to gnaw it, but it was in vain, as it was as thick 
as my thumb and as hard as iron, being made of a buffalo hide. 
I wrought with it a long time, gave it out, and could see no re- 
lief. At this time I saw daybreak and heard the cock crow. I 
made a second attempt, almost without hope, pulling the rope 
by putting my fingers between my neck and it, and to my great 
surprise it came easily untied. It was a noose with two or 
three knots tied over it. 

I slipped over the warriors as they lay, and having got out 
of the house, looked back to see if there was any disturbance. 
I then ran through the town into a corn field; in my way I saw 
a squaw with four or five children lying asleep under a tree. 
Going in a different way into the field, I untied my arm, which 
was greatly swollen and turned black. Having observed a 
number of horses in the glade as I ran through it, I went back 
to catch one, and on my way found a piece of an old rug or 
quilt hanging on a fence, which I took with me. Having 
caught the horse, the rope with which I had been tied served 
for a halter, I rode off. The horse was strong and swift, and 
the woods being open and the country level, about ten o'clock 
that day I crossed the Scioto river at a place, by computation, 
fifty full miles from the town. I had rode about twenty five 
miles on this sjde of the Scioto by three o'clock in the after- 
noon, when the horse began to fail, and could no longer go on 
a trot. I instantly left him, and on foot, ran about twenty 
miles farther that day, making in the whole the distance of 
near one hundred miles. In the evening I heard hallooing be- 
hind me, and for this reason did not halt until about ten o'clock 
at night, when I sat down,, was extremely sick and vomited; 
but when the moon rose, which might have been about two 
hours after, I went on and traveled until day. 

During the night I had a path, but in the morning judged it 
prudent to forsake the path and take a ridge for a distance of 
fifteen miles, in a line at right angles to my course, putting 
back as I went along, with a stick, the weeds which I had bent, 
lest I should be tracked by the enemy. I lay the next night 
on the waters of Muskingum; the nettles had been troubesome 
to me after my crossing the Scioto, having nothing to defend 
myself but the piece of a rug which I had found and which

while I rode I used under me by way of a saddle; the briars and 
thorns were now painful too, and prevented me from traveling 
in the night until the moon appeared. In the meantime I was 
prevented from sleeping by the mosquitoes, for even in the day 
I was under the necessity of traveling with a handful of 
bushes to brush, them from my body. 

The second night I reached Cushakin, next day came to 
Newcomer's town, where I got about seven raspberries, which 
were the first thing I ate from the morning on which the In- 
dians had taken me to burn me until this time, which was now 
about three o'clock the fourth day. I felt hungry very little, 
but was extremely weak. I swam Muskingum river at Old- 
comer's town, the river being two hundred yards wide; hav- 
ing reached the bank, I sat down, looked back and thought I 
had a start of the Indians if any should pursue. That evening 
I traveled about five miles, next day came to Stillwater, a 
small river, in a branch of which I got two small crawfish to 
eat. Next night I lay within five miles of Wheeling, but had 
not slept a wink during this whole time, being rendered im- 
possible by the mosquitoes, which it was my constant employ- 
ment to brush away. Next day came to Wheeling, and saw 
a man on the island in the Ohio opposite tcrthat post, and 
calling to him and asking for particular persons who had been 
on the expedition, and telling him I was Slover, at length with 
great difficulty, he was persuaded to come over and bring me 
across # in his canoe. 

At the same time, though I would strike away this excuse 
which is urged for the savages, I am far from approving the 
Moravian slaughter. Doubtless the existence of that body of 
people in our neighborhood, was of disadvantage, as they were 
under the necessity of receiving and refusing the Sandusky 
savages as they came to war, and as they returned, and as no 
aoubt some amongst them communicated intelligence of any 
expedition on foot against the enemy. I am also disposed to 
believe that the greater part of the men put to death were 
warriors; this appears from the testimony of one against 
another, from the confession of many, from their singing the 
war song when ordered out to be tomahawked, from the cut 
and painting of their hair, and from other circumstances. The 
greater part of the Moravian men who were really peaceable or 
well affected to us, having been carried off the fall before, and 
still detained at Sandusky. 

But the putting to death the women and children, who sang 
hymns at their execution, must be considered as unjustifiable, 



384 ASSOOIATORS AND MILITIA. 

inexcusable homicide; and the Colonel who commanded the 
party, and who is said perseveringly, contrary to the remon- 
strances of officers present, to have enjoined the perpetration 
of the act, has not yet been called to an account, is a disgrace 
to the Stale of Pennsylvania. 

(1) This was Col. Harrison, son-in-law to Col*. Crawford, one 
of the first men in the Western country. He had been greatly 
active on many occasions in devising measures for the defence, 
of the frontiers, and his character as a citizen in every way, 
then a young man, distinguished and respectable. He had been 
a magistrate under the jurisdiction of Virginia, and I believe 
a delegate to the Assembly of that State. I know no man with 
whose grave, sedate manners, pTudent conduct, good sense and 
public spirit on all occasions I was more pleased. 

H. BRACKENRIDGB. 

(2) This was a son of Col. Crawford. I do not remember to 
have seen him, nor was I acquainted with his character* before 
the expedition, but have since been informed universally, that 
he was a young man greatly and deservedly esteemed as a sol- 
dier and as a citizen. 

H. B. 

(3) These men, Elliot and Girty, were inhabitants of the 
western country, and since the commencement of the war, for 
some time professed an attachment to America, went off to the 
Indians. They are of that horrid brood called Refugees, and 
whom the devil has long since marked for his own property. 

(4) It is well known that Mr. Slover mentioned these circum- 
stances at his first coming into Wheeling, and before he could 
have known the relation of the doctor, for that this is an 
evidence of the truth of 'the doctor's account, and his own. 

H. B. 

(5) I observed marks on the man when I saw him, which was 
eight or ten days after he came in, particularly a wound above 
his right eyebrow, which he had received with the pipe end of 
a tomahawk; but his back and body generally had been injured.

THE SANDUSKY EXPEDITION, (a.) 



[It is not the'intention of the Editor to present an account of 
the unfortunate expedition of Col. Crawford to Sandusky. The 
narratives of Knight and Slover, which follow these lifts of 
volunteers, are sufficient for the general reader. Of the men 
who went upon the expedition, we have the rolls of sixteen of 
the eighteen detachments of companies. About two-thirds of 
the troops were from Washington county, and with possibly 
the exception of one company, the rest from Westmoreland 
county, under which we place the entire force. That these 
portions of companies were upon that service we fully believe, 
being borne out by the fact that all contained certificates simi- 
lar to the one re-produced in fac simile on the opposite page. 
The most reliable work on Crawford's Expedition against 
Sandusky is that by Consul Wilshire Butterfleld, published at 
Cincinnati in 1873.]

LOCHRY'S EXPEDITION, (a.) 



[In the summer of 1781, Colonel Archibald Lochry, Lieuten- 
ant of Westmoreland county, raised several companies of vol- 
unteers, of which he was chosen Commander, for the purpose 
of joining the force of Col. George Rogers Clark on an ex- 
pedition against the Shawanese and other Indian towns in 
Ohio, with scout designs against the British Post at Detroit. 
The party of one hundred & seven mounted volunteers ren- 
dezvoused at Carnahan's Block House, eleven miles west of 
Hanna's town, on the 24th July, 1781. They began their march 
on the 2nd of August by way of Fort Pitt to Fort Henry 
(Wheeling), where they arrived on the 8th, about twelve hours 
after Col. Clark with all the men, boats and stores he could 
gather had departed, leaving orders for Col. Lochry to follow 
and overtake him at the mouth of Little Kanawha. Several 
days were consumed by Col. Lochry in getting started. In the 
meantime Clark's men began to desert; and Lochry appre- 
hended Lieutenant Baker and sixteen men who were desert- 
ing from Clark at Fishing creek. To prevent desertion Col. 
Clark was obligeu to proceed from the Kanawha leaving a letter 
affixed to a pole directing Lochry to follow to the Falls of the 
Ohio. Lochry 's stores and forage gave out at this point and 
he detached Capt. Shannon with seven men in a small boat 
to overtake Clark and secure supplies. This detachment had 
not proceeded far when the Indians, who were carefully watch- 
ing the expedition, captured Shannon and all of his men but 
two, and also obtained a letter to Col. Clark detailing Lochry's 
situation. Joseph Brandtt, with one hundred Indian warriors, 
lay in. wait to attack Clark at the mouth of the Miami River, 
but Clark passed in the night, but the Indians being afraid of 
the cannon and the number of men did not molest him, but 
concluded to wait for Lochry's party. It is said that the In- 
dians placed the prisoners they had taken in a conspicuous 
position on the north shore of the Ohio River and promised to 
spare their lives on condition that they would hail Lochry's 



404 ASSOCIATORS AND MILITIA. 

party and induce them to land and surrender. However this 
may have been, at about 10 o'clock on August 24th, Lochry 
having reached an attractive spot about ten miles below the 
mouth of the Big Miami, near the present town of Aurora, 
Dearborn County, Indiana, landed on the north side of the 
Ohio River in the mouth of a creek which has since been 
called Lochry's Creek. The Ohio River was very low and a 
large sandbar extended from the south almost across to the 
north bank of the river. Col. Lochry's party, wearied with 
their slow and laborious progress and discouraged by the fail- 
ure to overtake Clark's army, removed their horses ashore and 
turned them loose to feed while some of the men cut grass 
sufficient to keep them alive until they should reach the Falls. 
A buffalo had been killed and all were engaged in preparing a 
meal, when the Indians appeared on both sides of the river, 
and began firing from the woods. The soldiers seized their 
arms and- made a defense as long as their ammunition held 
out. An attempt was made to escape by the boats, but they 
were so unwieldy and the water so low that the Indians cut 
them off. Unable to escape or defend themselves, Col. % Lochry 
surrendered. Brant, the Indian Chief, says thirty-six, in- 
cluding five officers, were killed and sixty-four made prisoners. 
One or two escaped, but did not reach home for several months 
afterwards. Lochry was tomahawked by a Shawanese Indian 
after the battle while sitting on a log, and all the wounded 
who were unable to march were similarly dispatched. The 
prisoners were marched eight miles up the Miami River, sub- 
sequently taken to Detroit, and sent from there to Montreal. 
Of the officers and men, we have the names of only a few, those 
herewith given.]

FOURTH BATTALION OF YORK COUNTY. (») 



Petition of the Fourth class of the Fourth Battalion of the 
York county Militia, April 30, 1779. 

To the Supreme Executive Council of the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania: 

Gentlemen:— the humble petition of the Fourth Class of 
the Fourth Battalion of York County Militia, humbly Sueth, 
that whereas your Honours have been pleased to send forth 
your Order, to call out the Fourth Class of the Militia at this 
time, to go to the frontiers against the Common Enemy, we 
think ourselves very much agrieved by Said Call, for the fol- 
lowing reasons — 

'First — We were called before, when the enemy was in the 
City, and we turned out with great Spirit, and underwent much 
danger and fatigue, and at that time we must either go or pay 
forty Pounds; but when the Eighth Class was called only one 
man turned out of the Battalion, and them that Stayed at home 
got off for paying a trifle — and when the next call came last 
fall, it was for three classes, when one, if they had turned out, 
would have raised more men than was wanted; and the three 
classes joined and paid one volunteer out of a class, which 
made up the number of men wanted, and there was no more 
to pay, nor no Appeal held but for those that was Conscience 
bound; and whereas, we are now called, we are informed we 
must either go or pay one hundred Pounds; and what further 
adds to our* grievance to be called from home at a time when 
we should put our Spring crops in the ground, and if we are 
to stay two months out at this time of the year then we will 
be deprived of putting any fall crop in the ground — 

And now, Gentlemen, we pray you may take our case under 

your consideration, and put us upon an equal footing with our 

fellow Citizens, or grant us Such relief as you in your Wisdom 

may think proper, and we as in duty bound shall ever pray — . 

April 24, 1779.

John Andrew.

SIXTH BATTALION OF YORK COUNTY MILITIA— 1778. (c.) 



The Petition of a number of the Sixth Battalion of York county. 



To the Hon. President or Vice President, and Council, of the 
free men of the State of Pennsylvania in Council met: 

The Petition humbly sheweth that we your humble peti- 
tioners, do look upon ourselves not only much agrieved, but 
even insulted, by reason of a certain John McKinley (a most 
avowed enemy of our Constitution), being imposed upon us as 
a wagon Master for this Battalion. It is very notorious that 
said McKinley has been long an enemy to the Common Cause 
of our Country, frequently Speaking most bitterly against the 
measures Concerted for the defence of our invaluable rights 
and privileges; has often reported, that he was indeed Some- 
what friendly to the Cause at first, but for that reason God had 



650 ASSOCIATORS AND MILITIA. 

taken away three of his children by death; and that he did not 
now any man that was Spirited in the Cause, but God had 
either taken him away by death, or Cast him into a bed of 
Sickness. When our Militia have been called together, he has 
frequently used all his influence with Some to prevent their 
going out. He has also declared that he would join How's 
Army rather than Submit to the Laws of our State; and abso- 
lutely refused to take the oath of Allegiance, and Swore he 
would Suffer death first; but yet he being told upon receiving 
'his Commission, that he must Either take the Oath, or It 
would be taken from him, he chose that, which to him it seems 
was worse than death, rather than not be a Wagon Master. 
Now having hinted to your Honours the Consistency and be- 
fore unheard of Zeal of this wagon driver, your wisdoms will 
at once see how well qualified he is for his Commission. Es- 
pecially when (to be timely serious), we inform your honors, 
he has been heard cursing the Council and Assembly; has in 
the most depreciating manner spoken against our Continental 
bills of Credit. But we shall not add, unless it be, that when 
his own Son, David McKinley, was requested by Benjamin 
Peden, Esqr., to take the oath of Allegiance, he answered that 
he could not while he was about his Father's house; for if he 
did he would be perjured every night if he did not inform 
against his Father. In short such is the man, and such his 
Tory principles and Conduct, that it will be impossible ever 
to bring the people here, willingly to serve under him. 

We petitioned Joseph Geffreys, County Wagon Master, to 
have him turned out and another put in his place; but he paid 
not the least regard to our Petition, and heard our petition 
just as the King and parliament heard the Petition of the 
Americans. 

Upon the whole, we would humbly beg leave to observe to 
your honourable body that we cannot but look upon it as an 
insufferable grievance, and a very great infringement upon our 
Liberties, that a man of no veracity and so notoriously inimi- 
cable to the Common Cause which we are all contending for, 
Should be Suffered to bear any rule over a people, many of 
whom have already risked their lives in the noble Cause of 
Liberty, and are still determined to persist in the glorious pur- 
suit, though at the risk of Life and Fortune. 

We humbly hope, therefore, that proper measures will be 
taken to turn out Said McKinley, and that some other person 
may be put in his place. We would recommend Joseph Reed 
Esqr., Robert Smith, Samuel Crow and John Lusk, as persons 



COUNTY OF YORK. 



551 



fit for that office. Finally we humbly beg that your Honors 
will take this our prayer under your serious Consideration, and 
redress our grievances; and we, your petitioners t as in duty 
bound, Shall ever pray—
