The Pequot War, although it has received little recognition in our understanding of American history, was the first war between English colonists in the New World and an indigenous group. It is often considered the first war in the United States. The Pequot tribe was the dominant Native American in southern New England during the early seventeenth century, controlling trade with the Dutch along the Hudson River Valley and Long Island Sound. The arrival of European settlers affected the relationships between tribes. The Pequots initially benefitted from these circumstances, expanding their territory over thousands of square miles from Long Island Sound to the Thames, Mystic, and Pawcatuck Rivers (Urbanus 2015:34), as well as the southern area of the Connecticut River.

In 1818, six families from Cilcennin, Wales arrived in Gallipolis, Ohio from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, really by accident. The Welsh immigrants were on their way to the frontier town of Paddy’s Run in Butler County, near Cincinnati, and stopped at Gallipolis because they were in need of provisions. After sending a scout to check out the area, they were met by the French inhabitants of the area. They were welcomed and invited to stay the night. During the night, a terrible storm came to the area and the Welsh awoke to find their flatboat gone. Here is where the mystery of the missing flatboat starts.

No one knows for sure what happened, but the Welsh travelers never made it to their original destination of Paddy’s Run. Debating on what to do – whether to secure another flatboat to push on to
This new American State will be called Monkaushka derived from the Native American term: trembling earth or earthquake. The people that live in this state are incredibly friendly people who have a tendency to be outspoken with their beliefs and warm in their hearts.
