In this valley called by the Indians Dya-go-di-ya (Place of the Battle), the first division of De Nonville's army was ambushed by Seneca warriors July 13, 1687.
With his second division the French leader overawed the Senecas, who fled, burning their capital Gannagaro, on Boughton Hill, to which they never returned.
In the battle were 2300 French and Senecas, each lost about 100.
On the morrow De Nonville's army took the trail to Gannagaro and destroyed the nearby palisade on Gah-a-yan-duk (Fort Hill), refreshing themselves at the spring of the eastern base of the hill.They re-embarked at Irondequoit Landing July 19.Past this point, ran the Indian trail from Irondequoit Landing to Gannagaro.
