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.

@Debradelai @Jackie I have a long held the opinion that the Native Americans were just as violent, creepy and aggressive as the rest of humanity.

@Ballerina @LibbyAnnSpeaks @Jackie @ThomasWic

Bastards killed nearly every member of my family during the Haverhill massacre of 1697, and then again in 1708.

Brutal savages who, adding insult to injury, fought at the pleasure of the French.

@Debradelai @Ballerina @LibbyAnnSpeaks @Jackie @ThomasWic Saul do you have a recommendation for a history on the French and Indian wars? I'm still kicking myself. 20 plus years ago Nat Review reviewed one that sounded great but cannot recall the author. I have read about Haverhill.

@Joycevor @Ballerina @LibbyAnnSpeaks @Jackie @ThomasWic

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"

@Debradelai @Joycevor @Ballerina @Jackie @ThomasWic You are so brilliant Saul. I’m glad....good to know there are guys like ya’all in this world.

@Debradelai @Ballerina @LibbyAnnSpeaks @Jackie @ThomasWic Thanks so much Saul! I knew the pickings were slim. The bonus was your opinion of the content and the authors.

@ilumanous @Debradelai @Ballerina @LibbyAnnSpeaks @Jackie @ThomasWic After all, that's why we're really here (apart from the discourse) - the bedtime stories!

@Debradelai @Ballerina @LibbyAnnSpeaks @Jackie @ThomasWic

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.

@Debradelai @Ballerina @LibbyAnnSpeaks @Jackie @ThomasWic

Do you know anything about Hannah Davis?

Hannah Davis
Born about 1720 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts Baymap

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.

@ilumanous @Debradelai @LibbyAnnSpeaks @Jackie @ThomasWic I came across a Hannah Duston when looking into the Abenakis. Courageous woman who returned the savagery.

@Ballerina @ilumanous @LibbyAnnSpeaks @Jackie @ThomasWic

She was my 7th g-grandmother's, Hannah (Heath) Bradley) niece.

They were both captired together at Joseph Bradley's garrison house. All of Hanna's children but one were murdered by the savages.

@Debradelai @ilumanous @LibbyAnnSpeaks @Jackie @ThomasWic And you’re related. Wow. Yes. That it was I read. Similar to Mary Jemison only Jemison was captured at age 12 (?), her family slaughtered, and she was taken captive. She ended up choosing to stay and live amongst her captors.

@Debradelai @Ballerina @Jackie @ThomasWic SEE!!!!????!!!! I fricken knew it. I knew are my brilliant, awesome, well read, talented, super cool confirmation vato!

@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.
