1782 – “The Year of Blood”
Marked for death, with faces painted black, Dr. John Knight and his commanding officer, Col. William Crawford, awaited their fate. As described in my previous column, Crawford was burned at the stake with Knight being forced to watch the ordeal.
Dr. Knight managed to survive by escaping from his captors, making his way back to Fort Pitt “in the Most Deplorable Condition Man could be in and be alive.”
