(Where the Hill is Near)
This principal village of the Senecas was destroyed in 1779 and was the farthest point reached by General John Sullivan and an army of four thousand men acting under direct orders of George Washington Commander-In-Chief.
This Campaign laid waste the Indian lands and so broke the offensive powers of the British-Tory-Indian Alliance against New York and Pennsylvania, extended the boundaries of the United States, revealed the fertile country of the Genesee and resulted in its early pioneer settlement.
