You meaning to hike the whole hundred miles?
I'm not sure about how I would feel about commemorating such an event. There were several accounts of it published by captives. It would be tricky to attend as that's after school has started. Also my part Chickasaw husband from off the Natchez Trace on Sheboss Ridge (where Grinder's Stand was of Meriweather Lewis fame) isn't fond of travelling "up nawth."
Shingas was supposedly watching from across the river. As I remember, he was the son of Queen Alequippa and Sasoonan, and was passed over for head of the Delawares by the Six Nations with the backing of Sir W. Johnson. One of the reasons he fought for the French.
