A series of armed conflicts between Native
Americans and settlers of European descent
occurred along the western frontier of the British
colonies during the 1750s and 1760s. In Oct. 1759,
during the Seven Years' War, Shawnee Indians
from the Ohio Country attacked settlers here at
Kerr's Creek. Pontiac's War (1763-1766), during
which a confederation of Indian tribes sought to
expel the British from the Great Lakes region,
also reverberated here. On 17 July 1763, Shawnee.
possibly led by Cornstalk, conducted another
surprise attack on Kerr's creek. A number of
inhabitants were killed, while others were
captured and taken to Ohio.
