#427 Battle of Bloody Island
One fourth mile west was Bloody Island, now a hill surrounded by reclaimed land. On this island in 1850, U.S. soldiers nearly annihilated all its inhabitants for the murder of two white men. Doubt exists of these indians' guilt. In 1851 a treaty between whites and indians entered into.
