LAST INDIAN CLASH
Near this spot in 1764, Shawnee Indians killed John Tremble (Trimble) in the last such event in Augusta County. During the preceding decade, a series of conflicts between Native Americans and European settlers occurred along the western frontier of the colonies. They included the French and Indian War (1754-1763), Cherokee War (1759-1761), and Pontiac's War (1763-1764). Although Chief Pontiac conducted most of his warfare between Detroit and Pittsburgh, the effects of that conflict rippled up and down the frontier.
