Gnadenhutten, German for Tents of Grace, was a village of Lenni Lenape Indians who had been converted to the Moravian Church. Though starving and caught between two cultures, these Indians were dedicated to peace and following the teachings of Christ. Ninety-six of them were rounded up and massacred together on March 8th, 1782 by a group of white settlers determined to exterminate them not because they were Christian, but because they were Indian. Each man, woman, and child's head was bashed in with a cooper's mallet by those of the same faith. This atrocity is unparalleled in American history yet is seldom talked about. The village of Gnadenhutten still exists on the Tuscarawas River in eastern Ohio, with reconstructed cabins and a mass grave of the victims.
