Westward Ho

Here at the Cherry Valley NY historic parking area the large sign tells of Indian agent (sic) George Croghan, an historic land speculator who opened the way west into Six Natons land for white colonists in 1768.
Revolutionary War alliances led to the infamous Cherry Valley Massacre in 1778. The subsequent Sullivan Clinton Expedition “devastated Indian lands.” Thunder is rumbling. I had better ride.
