Reading Abenaki Traditions And European Records Of Rogers

CLINK HERE FOR LINK to an informative .PDF article about Rogers' Rangers attack on St. Francis on October 4, 1759.  The Abenaki and French claimed 32 were killed by Rogers' Rangers, most of them women and children.  However Major Rogers claimed fires consumed many of the Indians who had concealed themselves in the cellars and lofts of their houses, and claimed the Rangers had killed at least two hundred Indians.  Which do you believe?  The St. Francis Abenakis dispersed after the raid and were effectively taken out of the war.
