Allusion to the Siege of Fort Stanwix and the Battle of Oriskany

Chapter 41
Page 155

Seneca tradition is rife on this subject, Tetayoah says that they lost thirty-three chiefs in the battle of Oriskany.

Jacob Blacksnake adds, that fee has seen a book in which it was stated that the Senecas had burned eight officers taken at this battle, in revenge for their losses. This he contradicts, on the authority of his father, Governor Blacksnake, who was there. The officers had been asked for after the battle, by the British but they were refused, on account of their great losses. They were not, however, burned at the stake. It was decided that they should ran the gauntlet, and they were killed by clubs, &c. in this ordeal.
