Colonial Wars

Captain Abiel Packard
(1699-1774) of Plymouth,
Bridgewater County, Massachusetts
fought in the Colonial Wars

French Indian Wars

KIAKing Hendrick- Mohawk
It was this Mohawk chief who
in argument with the
British officers about their
battle plan for the
Battle of Lake George said..
"If we are to die, we are too many;
if we are to fight, we are too few.
" Nevertheless, he climbed on a wagon to
exhort his several hundred warriors to go
into the battle, with such eloquence that
many white officers
reported being spellbound,
in spite of not
understanding his language.
He died in that battle on Sept 8, 1755.
