In 1780 during the Revolutionary war, a group of rangers were engaged in a battle against the Iroquois who were fighting on behalf of the British. The natives outnumbered the rangers some five to one and the Rangers eventually surrendered. After their surrender the Rangers were tied to nearby trees and slaughtered after a period of torture. It is claimed that they still haunt the spot of their deaths and that especially on the anniversary of the battle (July 16) you can see them locked in their doomed battle against their enemy.
