Champlain's War Party 1615

In September 1615, Samuel de Champlain led a small party of Frenchmen, reinforced by a substantial force of Hurons and Algonkians, down the Trent River en route to attack an Onondaga village near present-day Syracuse. The ill-fated venture served mainly to increase the hostility of the Five Nations towards the French.
