better known as Chief Logan of the Mingo whose capacity for fairness
and honorable conduct was well documented, was an advocate of peace.
After his father Shickellamy's death, Logan became one of the ten
leading Sachems or council chiefs of the Cayuga (Seneca) branch.
Logan eventually left the Cayugas to become chief of the Mingos
where he lived with his family at the mouth of Yellow Creek, near
present day Stubenville, OH.
"Who is there
to mourn for Logan?...Not one!" were the final words of Logan's
Lament, his famous speech given to Lord Dunmore which summed up
the feelings of anger and frustration over the brutal murders of
his family by a party of disreputable frontiersmen. Upon discovery
of his family's bodies, Logan swore revenge and within a short time,
began reprisals on the scattered white settlers in the Ohio valley.
The moving and emotional speech Logan's Lament is printed in its
entirety at the bottom of each limited edition print.
