PostSubject: The greatest Indian fighter   Tue Apr 28, 2009 11:30 pm

Perhaps the greatest Indian fighter of all time was a man by the name of Lewis Wetzel. He made his home in Fort Henry where Wheeling, West Virginia now stands. Lewis was captured by Shawnee Indians at age 14 and was shot a glancing blow in the chest which remove a part of his sternum. He escaped on the way back to the Indian town in Ohio. All this caused him to swear that no Indian would ever cross his path and live. He kept that vow until his death from swamp fever in 1811. He would follow a group of Indians back to their town where he would blow into his rifle bore much as one would a coke bottle. Then he would shoot one. This produced a spooky moaning sound. Thus he was called death-wind by the indians.
