Oriskany Monument

Wednesday, July 01, 2015

The Oriskany Monument was erected by the Oneida County Historical Society to mark the spot where one hundred and seven years before the battle of Oriskany was fought and General Herkimer fell.  It was dedicated on August 6, 1884 and there were about 6,000 people in attendance. A marker was placed on, or near, the spot where General Herkimer sat after he was wounded and directed the battle. This is the last of the fourteen markers erected along the route taken by General Herkimer and his Mohawk Valley men on their way to relieve Fort Stanwix (Oriskany Chapter, D. A. R.; sons Oriskany assisted.)
