Excerpt from The Hoosac Valley, Its Legends and Its History

The early history of the Hoosac Valley is inextricably interwoven with that of the very foundation of our great Republic. Its inhabitants were among the first to rise in resentment of the tyranny of the mother country, to defend the outraged rights of American manhood; and it was here that some of the most determined sieges of the Revolution took place. Bancroft considered the victory of Bennington one of the most brilliant and eventful strokes of the Revolutionary War.

The battle-fields of the savage period, during the Mohawk and Mahican wars, between 1540 and 1669, were located chiefly in the narrow passes of the Taconac and Green mountains north of the Forbidden Hoosac Mountain, between the Hudson-Champlain and Connecticut valleys. The "dark and bloody war-path" stretched from Hochelaga - the Algonquin's council-hill on the site of Montreal in the St. Lawrence Valley of New France - south to Cohoes Falls, the eastern portal of the Mohawk Valley; thence, through the Hoosac Pass to Manhattan, Pequot, and Wampanoag bays on the coasts of New Netherland and New England.

The Abenakis tradition refers to Uncus and Passaconaway and their Mahican and Pennacook councillors lighting the nation's council-fire at Chescodonta, the site of Albany Capitol, until about 1595.
