We are wrapping up our massacre series with the Paxton Boys Massacre.

The Paxton Boys were a group of vigilantes active in Pennsylvania during the 18th century, specifically in the 1760s. They were primarily of Scots-Irish origin and were angered by what they perceived as the inadequate protection of their settlements from Native American attacks by the colonial government. In December 1763, they carried out a violent massacre against the peaceful Conestoga Native American tribe and later attacked the Lancaster jail where Native Americans were being held for their protection. That jailhouse now serves as a theater and according to some, harbors the ghosts of those murdered as well as a beloved actress.

Our featured music in this episode is from SpellBook with their song " Rehmeyers Hollow".
