On two chilly December days in 1763, bands of armed men raged through camps of peaceful Conestoga Indians in Lancaster County, PA. They killed twenty women, children and men, effectively wiping out the tribe.
These murderous rampages by the “Paxton Boys” were the culminating tragedies in a series of traded atrocities between European settlers and native tribes.
Lancaster journalist Jack Brubaker gives a detailed account of the massacres, examines their aftermath and investigates how the Paxton Boys got away with murder.
