For ten savage years, hostile Delaware and Shawnee warriors sought to overwhelm the Robinson’s wilderness stockade and drive all settlers from the Endless Hills of the Allegheny Mountains.
No British regulars or even hastily gathered militias defended the log walls of Robinson’s fort. The Robinson clan built and defended their wilderness stockade. Fire arrows flew and muskets thundered. Men and women were killed there, and others were carried into brutal captivity. Starvation and massacre threatened. Cabins burned and fields were torched. Others fled across the eastern mountains, but the Robinsons held. They fought until they won.
This is their story.
