Abstract:

The U.S. frontier in the 1700s produced some men of utter ruthlessness, and Jim girty was one of the worst. Living among the Delaware Indians in the Ohio Valley, girty and his brothers incited acts of savagery and war against the white settlers. One of Jim Girty's targets was the Village of Peace, a settlement of Christian indians who had been converted by Moravian missionaries. Under the preaching of Rev. jim Downs, the Christian faith was gaining a foothold. Girty and his ruffians, playing on the fear and hostility of surrounding tribes, incited them to gather at the village, where they threw the ominous war club on the ground. Lewis Wetzel, a lonely, taciturn hunter whose family had been the victim of delaware atrocities, swore revenge on Girty. The intrepid Wetzel, called "Deathwind" by the Delawares, had saved Fort Henry from Indian attack, but was he any match for the odious Girty?
