Three Bloody Days in July


In 1763 the area beyond Blue Mountain north of Carlisle, Pennsylvania was an unforgiving and hostile land. 

European settlers started inhabiting the land legally in the 1750s but Native Americans, mostly Iroquois, Delaware, and Shawnee tribes also called the area their home.

The great Path Valley that stretches from the Carolinas to New York was a natural travel route for the Indians for hundreds of years.  When the Europeans started inhabiting this valley the Indians considered it an invasion of their lands.

In the 1750s and 1760s there were continual minor skirmishes between the Colonials and the Indians.  However, in July 1763 the skirmishes turned into full scale war.

This book is the story of the beginning of that war in the central Pennsylvania counties of Perry and Juniata.
