By Peter Cutul, Assistant Parks and Recreation Supervisor at Fort Montogomery State Historic Site. The harrowing tale of Chief Himham and his people is largely forgotten. Dispossessed of their lands and fighting for their survival during the American Revolution, the Wappinger were one of the Native American nations to fight for the Patriots. In 1778 Daniel Nimham and his son led the Stockbridge Militia in an epic battle in the what now is the Bronx. Hear the tale of this skirmish and discover the fate of Chief Nimham and his people.
