December 14, 1763

  
On this date in 1763, the Paxton Boys attacked a village near Lancaster, PA and killed 8 peaceful Conestoga Indians. Less than two weeks later, they attacked again. From a prior post:

December 14, 1763: Today, a band of almost five dozen frontiersmen, called "the Paxton Boys", will attack a peaceful Susquehanna Indian village in Conestoga, Pennsylvania. They will kill eight of the 22 inhabitants in this unprovoked raid. "The Boys" will continue their rampage during the next two weeks.


More in the days ahead.
