The proud Wappinger Indians lived throughout Westchester, Putnam, and Dutchess counties in eastern New York State.
Fighting alongside the Patriots, they helped push the British out of Boston, fought at Monmouth and other important Revolutionary War battles and were instrumental in helping the colonials win their war of independance.
Father and son, Daniel and Abraham Nimham with 40 Wappinger and Stockbridge Indians lost their lives at the battle of Cortlandt's Ridge in the Bronx during an ambush in August of 1778.
