The Battle of Minisink, fought on the high ground in New York State, above the Delaware River, and opposite the mouth of the Lackawaxen River, is the most dramatic event in the history of the Upper Delaware Valley. This engagement, fought July 22, 1779, was no mere frontier skirmish, but resulted in a small army of colonial militia engaged in a deadly confrontation with a body of Tories and Iroquois Indians led by the capable Mohawk Chieftain, Col. Joseph Brant (Thayendanegea).

The battle, which some have termed the bloodiest encounter of the Revolutionary War in proportion to the number of men engaged, lasted for about four hours, and resulted in the defeat and rout of the militia.
