On this date, the Tuscarora rose up and attacked the English settlement of Bath and other homesteads along the Neuse, Roanoke, and Trent Rivers. They had suffered greatly from English slave raids, land grabs, and diseases. In the uprising, hundreds of settlers were killed.
This ignited the Tuscarora War and led to the ultimate defeat of the Tuscarora.
This drawing shows Christopher von Graffenreid, founder of a Swiss- German colony in North Carolina, and his slave being held captive by the Tuscaroras during the conflict. http://www.turtletrack.org/Issues03/Co02082003/CO_02082003_Thisdate.htm
