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.
