Paul Draheim Herkimer county historian 8th in n series after the torys joined either the Royal greens or butlers rangers their movement amounted to a virtual expulsion and what followed was a rapid building of forts in the Mohawk Valley. One of these forts was fort Dayton Herkimer designed to provide forces to Check West Canada Creek raiding parties. Nearby fort Herkimer on the South Bank of the Mohawk River. It guarded the Mohawk from the South. The stockade at Schuyler Corners built by local refuges was to protect invasions from the North. In 1776 an attack took place in North Utica Deerfield Corners and the residents fled to Refuge at Little Stone Arabia near Frankfort. In 1777 Joseph Brant an Indian chief took command of 700 indians at Unadilla and announced that All must be faithful to the King and despite entreaties from general Nicholas Herkimer in a two Day Parley refused to Budge from the decision. Quot the die was cast and the Valley better be prepared Quot according to Justice Carl w. Peterson a account. Quot Brant consolidated his strength at a great Council meeting in Oswego and All but the oneidas and Tuscarora agreed to join the British the mohawks were Allied against their former neighbors in the Valley Quot judge Peterson pointed out. Quot Only sir William Johnson alone could have prevented this historical the Story of the Campaign of new York is known to All it was the British plan to capture new York Burgoyne was to March South from Montreal to capture Albany there to be met by lord Howe coming from new York. St. Legar marched eastward As planned until he got to fort Stanwix Juk scrapbook no. 1916 where real resistance was confronted. Instead of a weak stockade he found a Strong fortress of 750 troops with supplies for is weeks but St. Legar was confident. Surrounding the fort he demanded its surrender issuing a proclamation to the Valley settlers promising them amnesty if they joined him but massacre by the indians if they remained rebellious. Under col. Peter Gansevoort the fort although not completed was defiant and raised the new Flag of our country the stars and stripes the first time to see hostile gunfire from enemy. St. Leger Scannon and forces were of no Avail and made no impression on the fort. Only starvation could defeat the Garrison. The first night at Sterling Creek East of Schuyler Corners. The next Day they crossed the Mohawk River at Deerfield and took to the South Shore up through the Flat lands. Herkimer a plan was to attack when a signal by firing three cannons from fort Stanwix was Given so that there might be a cooperative Effort. The signal was delayed and on the morning of aug 6 Herkimer pressed on irritated by cols. Cox and Fisher who wanted action charged cowardice. With first rumours of the English invasion of the Mohawk Valley general Herkimer who was in command of the Tryon county militia ordered All Able bodied men Between 16 and 60 to hold themselves ready for military duty. He caused them to receive instructions in military Drill. With the arrival of St. Legar at fort Stanwix he sent out his Call and 800 men gathered at fort Dayton. They were divided into four regiments. On aug 4, the Little army marched to the Relief of fort Stanwix. Camping the British and indians were aware of the approach and at Oriskany the Little army walked into an Indian ambush. The deadly fight Indian style ensued. It was stopped Only by a heavy rainstorm. When the storm abated the fight continued but with the american forces Quot now in Complete control from a position on High ground and in regular formation Quot Justice Peterson chronicled. A the tories and indians were forced Back and vanished into the Woods a the judge continued Quot losses were terrific and the British Advance had been Given a severe set Back Quot the indians deserted their allies never caring to be partners to a defeat. The Valley patriots had Given to this nation a fierce Battle that definitely squelched the British Campaign to take new York a Peterson pointed out. The British however still hoped for the surrender of fort Stanwix. Col. Butler again under the White Flag called for the forts surrender and again failed. He promised that the whole Valley would be put to the Torch and the residents to hawked. The seige went on. On aug. To general Benedict Arnold under orders of general Schuyler set out from Albany for fort Stanwix. He stopped at fort Dayton. At the same time capt. Walter Butler of the British forces accompanied by soldiers and indians came Down the Valley to break the Backbone of the whig revolt and enlist tory support. He had a proclamation from St. Legar extorting the Valley settlers to return to their allegiance and join the Crown forces. He planned a tory rally at the Shoemaker tavern in Mohawk news of which reached col. Weston at fort Dayton. The place was surrounded and Butler taken prisoner he was tried try court martial and found guilty of being a spy and was sentenced to be hanged. Just before the execution an order was received commuting the sentence and ordering Butler to the Albany prison from there he later escaped. In the meantime Mcdonald a forces were invading the Schoharie Valley a tory Region. Cavalry helped from Albany summoned by col. Harper inspired further Patriot support and soon Mcdonald was in Retreat. Near Quot Breakabeen and the Caval he was overtaken at Quot the Flockey Quot Irv charge so frightened indians that the British ranks broke completely Schoharie Valley became a Patriot stronghold As a result and Mcdonald s Advance to fort Stanwix was stopped. Concluded next week distributed by King features Syndicate the Ittin i Horn let the. Economic Summit win now come to orders Trade Pepiot im3de\r\ Japan raid on Libya was big political plus by Jeffery Hart a Rumor political move almost always has multiple Impact and the spinoff from the Libya raid now stretches far beyond Tripoli and even the Middle East a master politician plays his shots the Way Willie Hoppe played billiards the balls clicking around the Green Felt and producing All sorts of unexpected dividends. A few from the Libya raid i. The bombing demolished the anti War consensus of the National democratic party. Khad Afy was a shrewdly chosen target so obvious and repulsive a villain that the strike against him had overwhelming popular support among americans tip of Neill and Teddy Kennedy virtually pacifists where the use of american Force is concerned scurried to support the raid and carried most of the democratic party with them angry about the raid but isolated at the far left end of the political spectrum were a handful of political freaks like Jesse Jackson Patsie Schroeder and Ron Dellums plus a couple of Republican oddballs Low Ell Weicker and Mark Hatfield. Conservative View the political result is that the democrats will now find it difficult to oppose Reagan As a reckless Quot and a Quot warmonger Quot from now on a and with congressional elections just around the Corner the democratic front against a a Reagan a foreign policy Quot collapsed Over Libya As the president dealt a telling blow to the democrats Post Vietnam passivity 2 Libya though not a soviet satellite is nevertheless armed and supported politically by the soviets. It qualifies As a soviet client state the raid showed unmistakably that this confers no immunity. Soviet rocket emplacements were smashed soviet built planes were pulverized on the runways. The raid struck at the margins of the soviet Empire As the Reagan doctrine took a Small step Forward and the Brezhnev doctrine took a Small step backward without a doubt other soviet client slates around the edges of the Empire suddenly began to calculate the costs and risks of their relationship with Moscow. Or. Gorbachev no doubt hoped that the United states would get involved closer to him in Central America thus allowing the soviets a Freer hand elsewhere. The Libya raid upset that expectation and in turn made increased pressure on the Sandim Stas easier to bring about politically. 3. The raid shocked some of or nato allies but at the same time made them stir themselves to tardy action. Before the raids the Reagan administration had explored the possibility of diplomatic and economic measures against Libya but had met with a Stone Wall in Europe. The raid demonstrated to the europeans that if they remain passive before terrorism More and larger raids Are in the cards. Faced with those alternatives the europeans have begun to expel Large numbers of libyans Monitor the activities of suspicious character use electronic investigative Ted toques and make key arrests. Of 4 the europeans have also be i shocked by the intensity of the american reaction of their failure to support the raids. France and spam refused overflight privileges. Italy refused cooperation. Germait waffled and Greece condemned the attack. All of this made it Only Tao dear that where its own Security is concerned Europe May be compar to a welfare Case utterly dependent on the . For its military Security the europeans have turned inward abandoned responsibility and eve i self respect. The intense negative reaction from the United states shocked them into realizing that Tor american opinion it May Well be tin to re examine the nato Alliance at gtd our role in it a sobering Prospect in the european capitals. As or. Johnson said the Prospect of being hanged concentrates the mind wonderfully the raid on Libya was a i arg 1 political plus Fri kept close Eye on Rock Hudson by Jack Anderson and Joseph Spear Washington the Fri fearful that Rock Hudson s apparent homosexual proclivities could harm the bureaus image if he portrayed a a Man in the movies kept close watch on the actor throughout the 1960s and Early 1970s, according to documents in the Bureau s files. Hudson a Hollywood Star for three decades died last fall after publicly revealing his affliction with acquired immune def ency syndrome. Following his death there was open speculation of what Hollywood a and the Fri a believed for years that Hudson was a homosexual. We first reported 14 years ago that the Fri had secret dossiers on Hudson and other entertainment celebrities. According to the information just released to our reporter Tony Capaccio under the Freedom of information act the columns we wrote then set off a determined Fri search for our source. Quot efforts Are continuing to identify Andersons source for Fri material through analysis of Andersons columns to attempt to isolate a single Jurn Quot v Washington a Quot "�1 merry go round document or item which might pin Point Andersons source a states an internal Fri memo dated May 22, 1972 the a men apparently suspected that the leak came from some other Agency. The memo says a we Are checking possibility of Andersons source being at the White House or secret service through extremely discreet contacts at the White House a the Fri files make Clear that the Bureau s sole interest in Hudson was his sexual behaviour a and the concern that he might play an Fri agent on the Silver screen. As Early As 1960, a memo reported on a Hollywood party that was raided by police because of alleged sexual Quot orgies Quot on the premises. Quot files of guests names were confiscated during the raid and As a result Manv prominent individuals have reportedly been revealed As apparently participants in these orgies a the memo states the names included Rock Hudson in 1966 the Fri sent a memo to the White House that stated the actor has not been the subject of an Fri investigation however the memo did inform president Johnson that a confidential informant Quot reported that several years ago while he was in new York he has an affair with movie Star Rock Hudson. The memo continued Quot the informant stated that from personal knowledge he knew that Rock Hudson was a homosexual the belief was expressed that by a personal knowledge the informant stated from personal knowledge he knew that Rock Hudson was a homosexual the belief was expressed that by a personal knowledge the informant meant he hid personally indulged in homosexual acts with Hudson or had witnessed or received the information from individuals who has done the Fri memo to the White House also disclosed that another informal had provided similar testimony in 1971 and that the bureaus los Angeles Field office has reported the Standard rumours of that Tive regarding hut son s sexual practices. The Fri was particularly concerned about two 1960s movies Quot Chicago 7 and Quot a Fine a historian at the american film Institute told out associate Donald Goldberg that a Chicago 7,&Quot in which Hudson was to had played an Fri agent on a Kilt of napping Case was never released a memo to Fri director j.
