The Oneida and the Battle of Barren Hill

The Historical Society of Montgomery County recently posted a video that shares the history of the Oneida’s role in the Battle of Barren Hill on May 20, 1778 and General Lafayette’s successful retreat to Valley Forge through what is now Conshohocken and West Conshohocken. St. Peter’s Lutheran Church (next to the General Lafayette Inn property) has a plaque in its cemetery where six Oneida who died in the battle are buried.
