What makes it especially frightening is that whole communities have been annihilated. We've known for years now that the emotional devastation that survivors feel and experience is often greater than the physical devastation.

Lets not forget that Gen. Sullivan initially started his march as a result of the Wyoming (Pa.) massacre. Hundreds of settlers were brutally killed AFTER the battle. Scalped, mutulated, heads bashed in with rocks. Women and children. I think both sides were wrong. But to simply overlook such an act (wyoming masacre), is unjust.

Yes, "to simply overlook" Wyoming would be unjust. We don't: Please check out the Gallery called "Sullivan-Clinton Meets Pennsylvania" where it's featured. Also, under Period Texts: see "Wyoming Valley Tragedy." Then let's talk again.

Also, it's been little remarked that even before Sullivan-Clinton, Wyoming was directly avenged by the Hartley Expedition that burned several Indian towns, including Queen Esther's Town, aka Iroquoia's Southern Door; and also by the burnings of the neutral Indian town of Oquaga (where Joseph Brant had a domicile) and Tory-Indian town of Unadilla.

Wyoming continues to boil under the surface. What does GB make of the fact that on its website, the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission officially states of the tragic Wyoming killings: "In the battle, the militia had been crushed and no quarter had been given, but no massacre of the population took place afterwards."

clinically suggesting emotional post traumatic stress disorder (ptsd) as tantamount to a physical scalping or mutilation (like having your fingernails removed using teeth) is pure psychobable nonsense. the mad doctor has lost credibility.
