Rogers also wrote a little known play called "Ponteach: Or the Savages of America" and seemed to show his political admiration for Pontiac, a great native leader at the time of his military height." - Wikipedia

Having left British Crown Point on September 13, 1759 with 220 picked Rangers on a daring mission to attack and wipe out the fierce Abenaki Indians at their village of St. Francis deep within French and Indian territory, Robert Rogers and 142 of his battle-hardened men arrived at St. Francis undetected by the enemy on the night of October 3rd, after a grueling overland march. Just before dawn on the morning of October 4th, Rogers led his Rangers in the assault on the unsuspecting Abenaki who had terrorized the New England frontier for years with impunity. Within two hours, St. Francis ceased to exist--its inhabitants killed and the village burned.
