The Lost Peace
Historic New York
After Oriskany, in 1779, American forces destroyed the Indian villages--real towns of stone houses with glass windows and brick chimneys--and burned the corn. This left the Iroquois homeless and starving--the unfortunate victims in a white man's war. The result was a migration of the Senecas and many of their Iroquois brothers to Canada.
Erected 1969 by State of New York Education Department and the New York State Transportation Department.
