1774 - 1783
The Oneida are the Forgotten Allies of the Thirteen Colonies. They suffered heavy casualties in the Battle of Oriskany, August 6, 1977; supplied corn to General George Washington's starving army at Valley Forge, April, 1778; and thwarted an ambush of General Lafayette Continental forces at Barren Hill, losing six Oneida scouts.
The memorial is located on westbound West Mason Street / Highway 54 at its intersection with Pleasant Lane, at or near 3294 West Mason Street, Green Bay, Wisconsin 54313.

NOTE: Very surprised that this memorial does not mention that Oneida Chief James Powlis served in the Revolutionary War; Wisconsin Historical Society Marker 502: Revolutionary War Veteran (James Powlis) in nearby Oneida, Wisconsin, tells his story.
