Pittsburgh, PA 15222

Over the years, there have been hints that an unrecorded skirmish occurred on Seneca lands along the Allegheny River – the only battle on Seneca Nation territory. During the 1779 Sullivan-Clinton campaign, Washington ordered Brodhead to subdue British Native allies, the Munsee and Seneca, and possibly meet up with the westward marching American campaign.

Dr. Joe Stahlman will discuss a recent project in which he and Dr. Douglas Perrelli from the University of Buffalo, in collaboration with Seneca Nation Tribal Heritage Preservation Office (THPO), examined available oral histories, historic maps, and secondary archival resources to understand the impacts of Col. Daniel Brodhead’s 1779 expedition.

Admission to this Fort Pitt Speaker Series program is $5 for adults and students and is free for History Center members. Please register in advance at www.heinzhistorycenter.org/events.
