Fate of some of the other prisoners: Andrew Johnson (Little Shut His Eyes, Pequolly] escaped to Boonesborough, from where he led raids on the Shawnee villages, stealing horses, taking scalps. There were two or three other escapes. Others were taken so far north that there was little hope of getting away. One man reached Lake of the Woods. Seven escaped the British at Detroit, were recaptured, put in irons, and sent to prison in Montreal, from where they escaped to Connecticut. Others spent years among the Indians: Joseph Jackson (Fish) enjoyed Indian life and refused to come home after the Revolution; suspected of being a renegade, he finally returned to American territory in 1799, but later rejoined his Shawnee friends along the Mississippi.
