Geocache Description:

From 1778 until the American Revolution's conclusion in 1783, Girty served as an interpreter for the British among natives in the Ohio Country. He also led natives in several attacks on American soldiers, including laying siege to the American garrison at Fort Laurens in eastern Ohio in 1779. He also assisted in the removal of Moravian missionaries, such as David Zeisberger and John Heckewelder, along with their native converts, from along the Tuscarawas River to Upper Sandusky, where the British could more easily watch over and protect them. American authorities labeled Girty a traitor and even offered a reward of $1000 for his capture or death.
