Defeat of the Kah-Kwahs on Buffalo Creek

Chapter 42
Page 155

Some of the Senecas affirm, that it is ninety years since the battle with the Kah-Kwahs, on the site of the graveyard, on the Buffalo creek reservation, was fought. This would place the event in 1755, a date so modern, and so well known, in our colonial history, as to prove what a poor figure they make in attempts to adjust chronology. If 190 years [and, perhaps, such should be the tradition,] be taken, the event (allowing two years for their defense) would assume the precise time [1655] indicated for it, by one of Le Moyne's missionary letters, in which he says, that the war with the Eries had broken out afresh in 1653.
