In the end, it was only one story, “the oldest: Light versus dark.” And as the two bickering cops stared at the sky, they determined that, despite obvious evidence, light persevered. Everyone expected a twist, and the show delivered: That it was about goodness.
I grew up near Gnadenhutten, same county, Tuscarawas, and there is a play about the massacre that I saw performed when I was seven. Never forgot the image of the people going into the cabin and seeing the shadow of the mallets rising.
Happened on March 8th and 9th, 1782.
Another summary of the massacre:
In 1782 the Gnadenhutten massacre, also known as the Moravian massacre took place. It was the killing of ninety-six Lenape (Delaware) by colonial American militia from Pennsylvania during the American Revolutionary War. The incident took place at the Moravian missionary village of Gnadenhütten, Ohio, near present-day Gnadenhutten. The Lenape were going hungry because of insufficient rations, so in February 1782, more than 100 returned to their old Moravian villages to harvest the crops and collect stored food they had been forced to leave behind. In early March, the Lenape were surprised by a raiding party of 160 Pennsylvania militia led by Lieutenant Colonel David Williamson. The militia rounded up the Lenape and accused them of taking part in raids into Pennsylvania. Although the Lenape denied the charges, the militia held a council and voted to kill them. The next morning on March 8, the militia tied the Lenape, stunned them with mallet blows to the head, and killed them with fatal scalping cuts. In all, the militia murdered and scalped 28 men, 29 women, and 39 children. They piled the bodies in the mission buildings and burned the village down.
Something really cute that Lupita Nyong’o does on Instagram is pose her dress, shoes, accessories and awards/memorabilia together. As a Lupita stan and a photographer myself, I could not love this any more than I already do. Way too cute!
