the bloody, day-long Battle of Point Pleasant was
fought. On October 10, 1774, Colonel Andrew Lewis' 1,100
Virginia militiamen decisively defeated a like number of
Indians led by the Shawnee chieftain, Cornstalk. Some
consider the battle to be the first of the American
Revolution. This action broke the power of the ancient
Americans in the Ohio Valley and quelled a general Indian
war on the frontier. Fought on this point of land
known by the Wyandotte Indian phrase "tu-endie'wie," or
"the point between two waters," the battle raged all
day. At times Cornstalk and his braves held the upper
hand, but eventually the firepower of the backwoodsmen
proved superior on the heavily forested battlefield. At
the end, 230 Indians were killed or wounded and more
than 50 Virginians had lost their lives, including
Colonel Charles Lewis, brother of the commanding
officer.<br><br>The park features a museum operated by the Daughters
