The Bloodstained Field: A History of the Sugarloaf Massacre, September 11, 1780 - Rogan H. Moore. In 1779, Sullivan’s Expedition against the Iroquois attempted, but failed, to pacify the frontier. As Iroquois war parties and contingents of loyalist troops ravaged the frontier, patriot militias were hastily assembled. Capt. Daniel Klader was put in command of a detachment of Van Etten’s Company for a dangerous mission that would take them into hostile country in search of Tory spies and sympathizers. Roland Montour, son of the legendary Queen Esther, caught Klader’s men off-guard by the Little Nescopeck—a bloody battle ensued. Several maps and numerous illustrations augment the text. (2000), 2007, 5½x8½, paper, index, 112 pp. 101-M1488 ISBN: 0788414887
