Episode 27 — Pontiac’s War IV — The Horrors of War

February 23, 2022

Pontiac’s War took on a different character in the forests of western Pennsylvania — territory the British colonists thought of as “the backcountry,” while the Delaware, Shawnee and Mingo of the Ohio Country saw it as lands that had been lost to them — and the edge of an encroaching frontier. The small but devastating raids on the Pennsylvania frontier created widespread terror, and set patterns that shaped frontier history for the next 150 years.
