New York, 1779, Finger Lakes, Sullivan Expedition, Iroquois Confederacy, Old Map



Launched from Easton, Pennsylvania, the Sullivan Expedition was a campaign ordered by George Washington, and led by General John Sullivan against the Iroquois in western New York in the summer of 1779. Sullivan’s army carried out a methodical “scorched earth” campaign reaching Seneca and Cayuga Indian territories, and burning their settlements and crops to the ground. At least forty native villages were destroyed in the Finger Lakes region, which devastated the Iroquois Nation’s economy. Many Iroquois refugees starved or froze to death in the harsh winter of 1779. (The map has a bonus item that goes with it.)
