The Peach Tree War

Location: The Tenmark Building, Jersey City

"The Peach War was a large scale attack by the Susquehannock Nation and allied Native Americans on several Dutch settlements along the Hudson River...The colonists believed the attack was motivated by the murder of a young Wappinger woman named Tachiniki, whom a Dutch settler killed for stealing a peach- an incident that had raised intercultural tensions shortly before the assault."
