The Mohawk Valley Path Through History begins with the Revolutionary War - the sites and events related to this period in history.
To compliment his trading post on the Mohawk River, William Johnson expands a trading post 40 miles to the southwest at the prominent, ancient Indians’ trading center, Onaquaga, on the Susquehanna River ("(Onaquaga) then having 100 Indian Lodges.") Easily accessible by long established trails from Oriskany, Fort Plain, and Schoharie, it is located near the crossroad from the Delaware River. Johnson family and friends are employed. Increase of Mohawk Valley trade to/from the southwest proves to be profitable and these actions cement Johnson's relationships with Iroquois and other tribes.
