   schema:description ""In 1774, war between the American colonists and Britain was rapidly approaching. But even as this great threat grew, a different kind of conflict had already broken out. Escalating tensions between Virginia settlers and Indians exploded into Lord Dunmore's War and the decisive Battle of Point Pleasant. Dunmore and Colonel Andrew Lewis each led a militia army in a two-pronged attack on the Shawnee and Mingo tribes in the Ohio Valley. On October 10, 1774, the Indians under the Shawnee Chief Cornstalk struck first at what is now Point Pleasant, West Virginia. After a furious and closely-fought encounter, Cornstalk's warriors were thrown back, and were pursued by Dunmore and Lewis to the Shawnee villages. There, the Indians were forced to agree to American settlement of what is now West Virginia and Kentucky. This is a detailed, illustrated account of the last battle in which Americans fought as British colonists, as they cared out a new western border beyond the Appalachian Mountains"--Page 4 of cover."@en ;
