11 February 1675

"It is a solemn sight to see so many Christians lying in their blood, some here, some there, like a company of sheep torn by wolves, all of them stripped naked by a company of

hell-hounds, roaring, singing, ranting, and insulting, as if they would have torn our very hearts out." On February 10th,1675 in Lancaster Pennsylvania twenty-four puritans were taken alive and carried captive. Others were not as lucky, some shot, stabbed with spears, and hit in the head with hatchets.

We need help rebuilding the town of Lancaster. After being brutally destroyed by the Native Americans.

For the mother and the child killed during the attack!

Taken out of the house dead with her baby in her arms, her husband by her side, and her two children clinging on to life. Mrs. Marlene Rose died at 22 along with her Husband Mr. Laurence Rose (26) and her child (5). The two children made it out alive but will forever miss their parents.

Book Review-

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to be informed of the way that the puritans where treated during there captive state. WARNING: Has some graphic content in the book.


Recent questions sent in-

I have recently heard about the attack against the puritans from the Native Americans. How can we prevent this?

Dear Jack R,

We can prevent this from happening again by assisting the Indians and not wanting to take everything/Land. We should share it and not try to push them away.

Dear Lancaster News,

I completely disagree with the way that the Native Americans reacted to us. They should have come to see what we would do as a compromise! or at least not at evil as they did... If we did that to them they would be upset with us and they would try everything they could to get them back..... But I guess we just don't see eye to eye on this topic
