The Battle of Lewisburg – Lewisburg History

There were no Indian settlements in the area though farmers and gardeners still regularly plow and till up arrowheads on their land – tokens of the hunting grounds of the Seneca, Shawnee and earlier people who are unknown to recorded history.

In 1759 the first white settlers came to the area and by 1763 there were 30 families.

In that year almost all the settlers were killed or captured by Shawnee led by Chief Cornstalk.

In 1774 in what is called the first battle of the Revolutionary War,

Andrew Lewis led an expedition against the Indians and defeated the Shawnees, Mingos, Delawares and Ottawas under Cornstalk at the Battle of Point Pleasant.

Part of Lewis’s route is now County Route 31 from Asbury to Blue Sulphur.
