Inscription. In July 1779, General John Sullivan began the southern leg of one of the largest offensive campaigns of the Revolutionary War. Directed against the Indian warriors of the six nations and their British and Loyalist allies, Sullivanís march proceeded northward from downtown Easton to Tioga, Pennsylvania, meeting there with General James Clinton and his army from the North. The successful campaign ended Indian attacks on the frontiers of Northern Pennsylvania and destroyed much of the food supplies of the British forces in the northern colonies with minimal loss of American lives. Sullivanís forces returned to Easton in the fall of 1779.
