In December 1763 a group of miscreants known as "The Paxton Boys" led raids into Lancaster County.  They murdered and mutilated an entire community of Iroquois Conestoga people.  Men, women and children.  A month later after the facts were gathered Benjamin Franklin wrote a lengthy article called "A Narrative of the Late Massacres" in which he chides the murders and also the colony of Pennsylvania as a whole for letting their apathy allow this horrible event to take place.  In this short episode Andrew will read excerpts from Franklin's article.
