The Tuscarora Heroes Monument was dedicated in 2013 to give thanks to the Tuscarora Indian Tribe for saving countless Americans when the British and Mohawks attacked Lewiston, NY during the War of 1812. They managed to scare them off and bide the Americans time to escape the burning village all while being outnumbered 30-1!
A great tribute to the Tuscaroras -- the local Native Americans who came to the defense of the white settlers during the British invasion of the region in the War of 1812. A beautiful sculpture that recreates the moment! Thank you Tuscaroras for saving our lives!
