Tuscarora Heroes Monument is located in Lewiston, New York and stands as a testament of thanksgiving from the people of Lewiston to the Tuscarora Nation for saving the lives of dozens of local residents during the War of 1812 British attack on December 19, 1813.

  • 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!
