Fort Edward in Washington County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The sixteen soldiers, with a teamster, a certain John Quackendoss of Albany, N.Y. who through the intervention of an Indian Squaw escaped the cruel death, were securely bound and seated on the trunk of a fallen tree. In this helpless condition they were put to death by one of the Indians armed with a tomahawk.
