Robert Rogers - Wikipedia (754 words)
Rogers wurde in Methuen (Massachusetts) geboren, verbrachte seine prägenden Jugendjahre aber an der damaligen Grenze der britischen Kolonien in New Hampshire.
Rogers stellte eine Truppe von 200 Rangern zusammen, marschierte mit diesen unerkannt in das feindliche Territorium, überfiel die Hauptsiedung der Abenaki, brannte diese nieder und verübte ein Massaker an den Einwohnern, dem Rogers Bericht zufolge über 200 Indianer zum Opfer fielen.
Rogers entkam aus der Haft, wurde von den Briten zum Oberstleutnant ernannt und stellte eine Ranger-Einheit (die Queen's Ranger) für den Kampf gegen die Amerikaner auf, konnte sich aber nicht mehr in der früheren Weise auszeichnen.
