In 1782 during the American Revolution, Pennsylvania and Virginia militiamen under the command of Colonel William Crawford, a
very close friend of General George Washington, launched a retaliatory expedition against the British allied Indians, the Wyandot
and Delaware. Their villages were located along the Sandusky River in Northwestern Ohio.
The account of this expedition and the graphic descriptions of the events that occurred, as told by C. W. Butterfield, renowned
historian and author of the 19th Century, will leave you spellbound. Everyone with an interest in the early American frontier and
the American Revolution should have this book in their library.
