1729

[News] November 28: The Natchez attack the French settlers at Fort Rosalie, burning the fort and killing 138 men, 35 women, and 56 children. The Natchez revolt spreads throughout the area, with a massacre at Fort St. Pierre, overlooking the Yazoo River near present-day Redwood. The French send 1,400 men from New Orleans and drive them out of the Grand Village near Fort Rosalie; over the next two years they will lay siege to the Natchez, virtually destroying them as a nation.
