Unearthing the Tuscaroras' Last Stand

Record #:
Two-hundred and eighty years ago in what is now rural Greene County, North Carolina a fort fell after three days of fighting, ending a bloody war. The fort belonged to the Tuscarora Indians and the war was against the American colonists that lasted from 1711 to 1713. This summer, archaeologists from East Carolina University are excavating to determine what remains.
