Through The Mohawk Valley


 

The Mohawk valley is now the great trade route to the west. In the early days it was of no less importance. From our first knowledge of it to the close of the Revolution it was a Great War route. Through this valley the tide of war surged back and forth for many generations. Almost every rod of its land is historic. The fights and massacres that took place here were so numerous and so bloody that that section was known as "the dark and bloody ground."
