About Fort McHenry
The Susquehannock people, also called the Conestoga by the English, were an important Iroquoian-speaking tribe that formerly lived on Susquehanna River and its branches, from the north end of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland across Pennsylvania into southern New York.
The name Susquehannock is thought to have been an Algonquin word meaning the “people of the Muddy River.” The Susquehannock was a confederacy of up to 20 smaller tribes who occupied fortified villages along the Susquehanna River. “Susquehanna" comes from the Len'api (or Delaware Indian) term Sisa'we'hak'hanna, which means "Oyster River." Oyster beds were widespread in the bay near the mouth of the river, which the Lenape farmed. They left oyster shell middens at their villages.
The Susquehannock were an independent people and were not part of any confederacy into the 1600s. They were described as noble, heroic, aggressive, warlike and imperialistic. For years, before Europeans arrived, they were bitter enemies of the Iroquois Confederacy and were also thought to have warred with the Mahican from the central Hudson Valley. Susquehannock war parties routinely attacked the Lenape tribes along the Delaware River and traveled down the Susquehanna River where they also raided the Nanticoke, Conoy and Powhatan living on Chesapeake Bay.
The villages of the Susquehannock needed to be heavily fortified with their many enemies. By 1700, the tribe had experienced massive decline due to disease and continuous warfare, most notably following sieges on their forts – some by the English colonists. The attacks foreshadowed the English siege upon a more famous Maryland fort some years later, the Fort McHenry bombardment.
