"The body of work herein represents the ambush at Frankstown (south of present-day Altoona and west of Hollidaysburg) that occurred early Sunday morning, June 3, 1781. It involved four principal forces that often met on the Pennsylvania frontier. These were: the Pennsylvania rangers and militia, who were primarily responsible for frontier defense; and Butler's Rangers and their Iroquoian allies, who were responsible for implementing British war strategy as it concerned the frontiers." - from the Introduction.
