Regarding The Beukendaal Battle. Translated to English from Dutch, Beukendaal means Beech Dale, and this area around Sacandaga Road and Spring Road in Glenville was known for the great number of Beech trees growing. The area is notable for being the only battle of King George's War to occur in the Mohawk Valley.
