Wow I just looked at some of this on the web.  I will be trying to find out more about this story.  I had no Idea, can you imagine a forced march to Canada of 300 people, with some dying along the way.  People being killed in there homes and their homes distroyed.  Oh my, it was a very wild place, not all what we learned about history books in school and what a nice meal our ancesters had with the friendly Natives.  That is not to say at all that the Natives of this land were treated well by either.
