September 7, 1778: Today through the 17th, the Shawnee attack Boonesborough. Captain Antoine Dagneaux de Quindre, with eleven soldiers, and 444 Shawnees, including Chief Blackfish (Chinugalla), demand the surrender of Boonesborough. Daniel Boone is commanding the sixty American sharpshooters in the fort. After losing thirty-five warriors to the Kentucky fighters, the Indians quit on the 20th. Boone’s forces report only four men killed in the fighting. Some sources put the settlers’ numbers at thirty men, and twenty young men, with a few women and children. The losses are also reported at thirty-seven Shawnee, and two settlers.
