This is the home of Joseph Brant or Thayendanegea as he was known to his people. His native American heritage gave him an important role to play in the War of 1812; he served as a liaison between the British and the Iriqois League. Many Europeans considered him to be the perfect example of the Noble Savage due to the influences of his stepfather and his European-style education. I found his personal history to be very interesting and I've heard alot about him since visiting his former home. Especially since it's the 200 year anniversary of the War of 1812.
