by C.W. Butterfield, Softbound, 403 pahes, 6" x 9". During the Revolution many Indians were encouraged by the British to attack American settlements. In May, 1782, Col. William Crawford led an expedition of 500 militiamen into the Ohio Country with the primary purpose of destroying the towns of the enemy Indians along the Sandusky River. The expedition was a failure. This book chronicles the events leading up to this ill fated expedition, the subsequent defeat of the militiamen and the capture of Col. Crawford and others. Graphic descriptions of the autrocities committed by both sides, including the torture and burning of Col. Crawford as the Indians took their revenge for the Gnadenhutten massacre.
