We are unwilling to join on either side of such a contest, for we love you both-old England and new. Should the King of England apply us for our aid-we shall deny him-and should the colonies apply-we shall refuse." Oneida Nation to Gov. Trumbull, 1775

Fort Stanwix has two names. Named for Gen. John Stanwix, this was the fort's name under the British. When rebuilt by the Americans, it was then named for Gen. Phillip Schuyler. However, there were several other Fort Schuylers in New York at that time, so the name never stuck due to the confusion.
