The Indian Massacres of Wawasink During the American Revolution
Published in 1846, this curious little book recounts the days when Indians prowled the countryside, kidnapping children and mercilessly scalping their parents. This blood-soaked account of frontier New York (generally east of the Catskills) prominently features several of the author''s ancestors, as well as better-known figures from the Shawangunk, Wallkill, and Wawasink neighborhoods. Episodes relating to the rough treatment of Tories during the American Revolution are particularly interesting.
