The following post on the Lachine Massacre, drawn from my work in progress Here to Stay, a history of my 17th-century Canadian ancestors, has been republished on a racist, race-baiting site. I have asked them to take it down, but they have not done so.
I did not give them permission to use the post to attack Native Peoples. I do not endorse nor condone the racist tone of the site and do not give permission to any racist site to reprint our articles.
This post was intended to be a piece of history – and in no way a derogatory comment on the Iroquois. Both sides had their share of cruelty and savagery.
While the Iroquois attack was brutal and devastating, I have written the same about my ancestors’ attacks on the English in New England: Deerfield, Massachusetts, and Portland, Maine. These are just two sites that were savagely attacked by the French and their Algonquin allies. [Free Membership required to read more. See below. ]

I didn’t know anything about this history. I guess American don’t know much about what happens beyond our borders. That’s one thing I like about your blog that it’s always telling mem something new. Good work, guys.
