On This Day: In 1777 Shawnee Chief Cornstalk (Hokoleskwa) was killed. In the Shawnee language, his name meant "blade of corn". Chief Cornstalk and his son, Elinipsico, went to Point Pleasant, the site of the American Fort Randolph, to warn the Virginians of an impending attack and to seek peace for their people. The Virginians took the Natives hostage. Shortly thereafter, news reached Point Pleasant that the Shawnee had ambushed and killed a soldier. Seeking vengeance, the colonists killed Cornstalk, his son, and other Natives in custody.
