ARP202 Cherry Valley Massacre

May 23, 2021

In the fall of 1778, Americans attack Indian villages at Unadilla and Onaquaga in upstate New York.  In response, Mohawk Chief Joseph Brant and Major Walter Butler of Butler's Rangers attack the Americans at Cherry Valley, NY.  They slaughter men, women, and children.
