During Dunmore's war (1774) and the
Revolutionary War
(1775-1783) conflicts
between Indians and colonists often intensified
as European powers encouraged Indians from
the Ohio region to attack frontier settlers.
Tensions also sometimes increased when settlers
moved into lands that were once Indian territory.
Nearby to the south, an early conflict occurred
in the upper Clinch River Valley, when Indians
attacked and killed John Henry, his wife and
their children on 8 Sept. 1774. Additional conflicts took place during this period, including a
March 1782, Indian attack on the house of
James Maxwell that killed two of his daughters.
