THE WHITE INDIANS

Captured by the Indians, They Never Came Back

by Alan Fitzpatrick

This is the untold story of a long-held secret from one of the darkest chapters of American history that is truly shocking. It is the epic story of more than 1,200 white captives who never came home after the peace was made. For more than 230 years, historians have written about Indians with racial prejudice, refusing to believe that white people would choose to live with "merciless heathen savages." Why then did so many captives choose to remain with the Indians when they could have returned?

Place of the Skull

PLACE OF THE SKULL

The Untold Story of Vengeance, Blood and the British Flag at Wheeling

by Alan Fitzpatrick

There is a mystery surrounding Wheeling, West Virginia’s earliest pre-colonial history that has not been adequately investigated or solved for over two hundred and fifty years until now. The mystery begins with the name. What does Wheeling mean? Who gave it this Indian name and for what reason?

Wheeling is an English corruption of the Delaware word “Weel-lunk,” which literally means “Place of the Skull” in the Delaware language. It was told by the Indians that a white man’s severed head had been placed upon a pole at the site of Wheeling as a warning. Who then was this white man and why was he slain?

This book answers those questions by delving into the existing historical archives of the time as well as examining the 18th Century Native-American Woodland Indian mind to understand “Weel-lunk” through their eyes. To Indians, placing the severed head of a white man upon a pole was not a random act of savagery or a warning to white men. Rather, it was an act of retribution for a grievous crime committed there, and marked the "Place of the Skull" with the legacy of a place of white man’s evil.

18th-Century North America....

West of the crest of the Allegheny Mountains--
One unbroken expanse of virgin wilderness....
Two peoples, red and white, locke ad in conflict
Of culture and race for supremacy over those lands
In a struggle and an outcome determined only
By unrelenting savage warfare.

The Indian lands of the Ohio Country bordering the frontier of
Great Britain's colonies in America would serve as the stage
for nearly fifty years of bloody warfare between indigenous
native-American tribes and colonial setters streaming across
the mountains from Pennsylvania and Virginia in search of free
land and a new way of life. That epic struggle would culminate
in the savage battle for British and Indian control of the Ohio
Country against the Patriot cause during the American Revolution.

These words and images are in keeping with that struggle in that
time long past. They serve to reveal and relate, to record and remind
us of those people, both red and white, who sacrificed everything 
for what they believed to be true in America's 18th-century wars.

In Their Own Words BookTHE BOOK THAT'S
MAKING HISTORY

In their Own Words, Native-American Voices from the American Revolution

by Alan Fitzpatrick

“In Their Own Words will excite any reader who wants to better understand American Indian views of the events of the war in the Ohio Country. These perspectives have often been poorly represented in treatises on the Revolutionary War. Alan’s effort to mine the Haldimand Papers for recorded speeches of and dictated letters from American Indian leaders of the region during this nation-defining war, will be greatly appreciated by many and extremely useful to history teachers and interpreters who attempt to “put flesh on the bones of history” for students and the general public.”
Doug Wood
