Overview
ATTACK IN THE ALLEGHENIES gives chilling accounts of the mayhem spread by the Delaware warriors of Kittanning, Pennsylvania, and of Colonel John Armstrong's 1756 raid to destroy this Indian stronghold.
Description
In 1755 and 1756, the bloodthirsty warriors of Kit-Han-Ne descended upon the frontier of Pennsylvania and annihilated all in their path. Led by the Delaware chiefs, Shingas and Captain Jacobs, they spread terror to Philadelphia's very doorstep. The Indian rampage had devastating consequences for Lightnin' Jack Hawkins and his trapper friends, too, for they suddenly found themselves out of work and near starvation. Jack's fortunes became even grimmer when he was captured by villainous rum traders and taken to the Delaware terrorist base to face certain torture or death. Instead, the fleet-footed woodsman escaped to lead Colonel John Armstrong's colonial army to Kit-Han-Ne. When the white men answered the Indian menace fire for fire and blood for blood, Hawkins endured a life-changing experience that taught him the true meaning of human compassion. ATTACK IN THE ALLEGHENIES, the second novel in the French and Indian War series by William P. Robertson and David Rimer, gives a chillingly accurate account of the September 8, 1756, raid on Kittanning.
