Christian Native Americans

Post  MISPLACEDBUCKEYE on Mon Mar 09, 2015 11:29 pm

As so many remember Selma let us not overlook pieces of our history.
On March 8, the militiamen arrived at Gnadenhutten. Accusing the natives of the attack on the Pennsylvania settlements, the soldiers rounded them up and placed the men and women in separate buildings in the abandoned village overnight. The militiamen then voted to execute their captives the following morning. Informed of their impending deaths, the Christian Delawares spent the night praying and singing hymns. The next morning the soldiers took the natives in pairs to a cabin and killed them. In all, Williamson's men murdered twenty-eight men, twenty-nine women, and thirty-nine children. There were only two survivors, who informed the Moravian missionaries and other Christian Native Americans as to what had occurred. Taken from a page of Ohio's History..... - Guy Jones
