Joseph Elliott's Account

  "After I was taken prisoner, myself and others were taken to the camp of the Indians and tied securely, and closely guarded by our captors until the next morning. Twelve of us were then taken near the second bank of the river within the present town of Wyoming; we were stripped of all our clothes except our shirts and, led by two savages each, were marched in file to be tomahawked by a squaw whose son, a young chief, was killed at Exeter on the ist. day of July. This tragedy occurred on the 4th. I was next to the last in line. Titus Hammond, the last, and I determined to escape if the least chance offered. As we moved to our turn, I saw just before me the body of a fallen tree over which our path led. As I came near it, I sprang forwards, planting both feet against it, and instantly jumping backwards I tore myself away from my guards. Hammond cleared himself at the same moment, and we both jumped down the bank. I ran towards the river, and Hammond turned to the right and hid in a fallen tree top. Between the place of execution and the river rye was standing, and it was higher than my head. It had been trailed by fugitives the day before, so I followed one. The pursuing Indians could not follow my path for cer- tainty on account of the other trails so I gained a few minutes and this gave me time to get into deep water before they commenced shooting. As soon as I could I commenced to swim under the water, only raising my head for breath. Once when I came up a bullet hit me under my shoulder blade disabling one arm, but I turned and swam on my back the rest of the way using the other arm. As soon as I was over and away from the river, I put a piece of my shirt into the bullet hole to stop the blood. I found a loose horse and, with a piece of bark for a bridle, rode into Wilkes Barre. I had a hard time of it with the wound for several weeks but being tough, recovered."
