Marching on Seneca TownsIn August of 1779, Colonel Daniel Brodhead and 605 American rebels passed two miles east of here. They were the Brodhead Expedition of the Revolutionary War, sent to punish the Munsee and Seneca Indians for siding with the British and raiding American settlements on the frontier. Brodhead and his troops destroyed several large villages, burning more than 150 houses and destroying more than 500 acres of corn. The expedition started at Fort Pitt and advanced up the Allegheny River, covering approximately 400 miles in 35 days traveling on foot.
