<When the Shawanese raided Draper's Meadows, near Inglis Ferry, in 1755, they took their prisoners away on the trail through Powell's Valley toward Cumberland Gap; and the rescuing party which followed them were perhaps the first white men who traveled what became the great pioneer thoroughfare to Kentucky.> HURLBERT:82

It was a <cruel, bloody war between the "Long Knives" -- as the Virginians in the Monomgahela country came to be called, from the sabres that hung at their loins -- and the Shawanese north of the Ohio. . . . The preceding years had been marked by continual bloodshed. It is undoubtedly true that those Long Knives on the upper Ohio had been doing some dreadful slashing. Perhaps the provocations were as enormous as the crimes; surely the Indians to the north were the most bloodthirsty and cruel of any on the continent. At the same time it is safe to say that many of their white foes on the Ohio were inhuman marauders, whose principal occupation was that of shooting game for a living and Indians for sport.> Here he cites the murder of Logan and his family.

Statement of Mrs. Elizabeth Pogue Thomas, one of Richard Callaway's company coming to KY in 9/1775, when she was 11: <My father moved on the North Fork of Holston within 4 or 5 miles of Abbingdon & remained there two or three years and in March 1775 we moved down Holstien near the Big [Long] Island where we remained until Sept 1775 when Col Calloway and his company came along going to Kentucky, when my father William packed up and came with him and our family, Col Boone and with his wife and family and Col Hugh Mcgary, Thomas Denton and Richard Hogan were on the road before us and when we arrived at Boonesborough the latter part of September There was only fur or six cabbins built along on the Bank of the Kentucky river but not picketted in being open on two sides.> 4CC85 quoted in HURLBERT:117-118
