Massacre Of Prisoners At Fort Miami?

Incident Near Site #3

On the surrender of Dudley's command the prisoners were marched down to Fort Miami with an escort, and there, under the eye of Proctor and his officers, the Indians, who had already plundered them and murdered many on the way, were allowed to shoot, tomahawk, and scalp more than twenty of them. This butchery was stopped by Tecumtha [Tecumseh], who proved himself to be more humane than his British ally and brother officer, Henry Proctor. [Source]
