Blackfish's proposal to accept the peaceful surrender of the fort and to transport the prisoners to Detroit without harm was "amazingly generous." "The Indians were probably far more sincere than the whites. They never dreamed of the rejection of such favorable terms, and they really did not want their adopted brother, Big Turtle, to come back to them. Blackfish remained impressed by the glowing prospects of white cooperation with the Shawnees that Boone had drawn while a captive. Moreover, he still did not suspect how much stronger his own force was. He probably never found out." (BAKELESS:205)
