Today's anniversary - the Cherry Valley massacre


by Ralph Mitchard

The Cherry Valley massacre was an attack by British and Iroquois forces on a fort and the village of Cherry Valley in central New York on November 11, 1778, during the American Revolutionary War. It has been described as one of the most horrific frontier massacres of the war.[1] A mixed force of Loyalists, British soldiers, Seneca and Mohawks descended on Cherry Valley, whose defenders, despite warnings, were unprepared for the attack. During the raid, the Seneca in particular targeted non-combatants, and reports state that 30 such individuals were slain, in addition to a number of armed defenders.

 Larry who lives near Fort Recovery was annoyed that no one did Wayne's Legion in 1/32 so created his own. Four poses.  Excellent work.
