Largest Child-Sacrifice Graveyard Strikes Huge Blow to Native American Innocence Myth
Every Columbus Day, liberals insist that the story of European colonization is a simple narrative of good versus evil: horrible Europeans came upon innocent Native Americans, introducing slavery, exploitation, and oppression. A massive archaeological discovery blows one of many gaping holes in this narrative.
The Rousseaunian fallacy of the "nobility of the savage" is as worthless as any other canard ever to issue forth from the savage minds of Gaul.
There aren't that many. A classic is Francis Parkman's "Montcalm and Wolfe," and a more recent one "The French and Indian War: Deciding the Fate of North America" by Walter R. Borneman.
Avoid Russell (a charlatan) and Anderson (lightweight).
On Haverhill, there''s my "Bradleys of Essex Co. Revisited" and
Jay Atkinson's "Massacre on the Merrimack: Hannah Duston's Captivity and Revenge in Colonial America"
You and Saul might be related? 😀
We are distant cousins... 😜
Like we all are in some mysterious way.
Josiah Rowell was born in 1717, in Massachusetts. He married Hannah Davis of Haverhill on 1 May 1740.
My uncle Frank and his son live there right now. They aren't from my fathers side though... So they didn't live there, back as far as your's did. They live on Boardman Street.
Dear Lord, please let this turn into one of genealogical threads that goes on until they run out of relatives. Those threads are like mother’s milk.
Those who "chose to live among their captors" often did so out of shame. There was no choice.
There's an interesting account here.
@Jackie I worked for an Indian tribe for 10 years. I went to national meetings with tribal elders. They all had a disdain for the term "Native American" They called themselves Indians and said we worked in Indian country.
@Jackie NA’s could and would butcher a human just as quickly as anybody else.
Another myth: They didn't manipulate the environment. Lewis and Clark reported mass burnings west of the Mississippi; the Indians aggressively managed Forests and Prairie with fire. California could learn from them!
Liberals would LOVE this story. It is the natural progression of all the baby killing they have been responsible for.
They have reached the abortion after birth level... then it will be 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and then they will be aborting 14 year olds...
@Jackie Most folks who are well read in history know that indigenous cultures sacrificed many of their own people. The idea that their wasn't a slave culture and a hierarchy in almost all native cultures is ridiculous.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
