: In my ongoing quest to find sites with first-person accounts of events during the French and Indian War, I've found some rather unusual sites. This one caught my attention, although I must admit that I didn't exactly go looking for it.

Hi Jeri -
The web site you've linked to is an excellent source of info for colonial/early American Revolutionary/19th century history. Lots of good articles.
The author of that particular article on scalping is Major George Bray, friend & site historian. He wrote another article on the subject which we've excerpted in case you'd like to read that one as well.
Thanks, Jeri ...
