"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." - The Oneida Nation to Governor Trumball, 1775
The story of the American Revolution in at Fort Stanwix/Schuyler, guardian of the Oneida Carry, is one of many different people and people groups. Oftentimes, these stories are not only interconnected, they are sometimes more indicative of a "civil war" than a "revolution." After their stories diverged, many of these people went on to help found not just one, but two nations: the United States and Canada.
