Summary
"The Battle of Oriskany was a massacre. Four hundred Patriot militiamen out of a force of eight hundred died for the loss of less than eighty Loyalists, making it the bloodiest battle of the Revolutionary War. Most surprisingly, the ambushers were mainly warriors of the Seneca and Mohawk nations fighting with the British and armed with tomahawks, knives and war clubs. In this revealing episode, Battlefield Detectives analyzes the evidence, dramatically re-enacts the engagement, and discovers what made the battle so bloody and why so many militiamen had to die. Scholars and historians explain the little known story of American Indian involvement in the Revolutionary War."--Publisher's web site.
