Clark Campaign 82
John D. Shane interview with Josiah Collins, ca. 1840s: Old Chillicothe and Pickaway destroyed in 7/1780: Chillicothe by the Indians themselves when they saw Clark coming; they retreated to Pickaway, which the Americans attacked, defeating the Shawanee and destroying the town. <The indians didn't build [Old] Chillicothe then any more: but went some distance from there and built a new town, on the west or south west side of the Big Miami, which they called Chillicothe. The Pickaway family united with them, & never built their own town any mpore. These Shawnees whose town was burnt in 1780, Old Chillicothe, had come from the Chillicothe of Scioto. When they had built a town (that which was burnt) they called it Chillicothe too. The Shawnees, whenever they removed & built a town, they called it Chillicothe.> Peace made in 7/1783: <[Maj.] Wales [Walls?] proposed that they should give up all the prisoners on both sides. The indians were willing to exchange, but not to give up more. They said that the whites wouldn't take prisoners, they always killed them. Wales said that they knew that, that they skulked about so, they couldn't take them, they were obliged to kill them. The indians replied they knew that, but that Wales hadn't an equal number of prisoners to exchange, & they wouldn't exchange with them for no more than Wales had of their men. Cajah Calloway, Nathaniel Bullock, & Hoy's son & it may be Jimmy Calloway and another young man & others were gotten at this treaty. They brought in 8 of theirs -- for these 8 squaws we had taken.> 12CC106-107
