Two miles northwest of this site, on Scippo Creek, was the town of the Shawnee chief, Cornstalk, celebrated for his leadership of an Indian army against Virginia volunteers under Colonel Andrew Lewis, in the Battle of Point Pleasant, Virginia, October 10, 1774. Although they destroyed one-fifth of Lewis' forces, the Indians retreated and made peace with Lord Dunmore, Governor of Virginia, at Camp Charlotte, a few miles east of Cornstalk's town.
