Now it is the Indian's Turn to Give Blankets to the White Man
It was July in 1763, Fort Pitt in Pennsylvania was under siege, part of Pontiac's War, set in motion after the French and Indian war that ended in 1763. The British were supposed to leave the territory after the French surrendered so some of the tribes allied with the British turned on their former allies.
So Fort Pitt was surrounded by hostile Indians including the Delaware and the Mingo tribes. The leader of the fort destroyed the village and houses outside the fort to clear the lanes of fire while hundreds of settlers flooded into the fort for safety. And a smallpox epidemic happened so a small hospital was set up to quarantine the infected.
