April 20, 1715 – Massacre at St Bartholemew’s Parish
At the onset of the Yamasee War, Yamasee Indians attacked St Bartolehew’s Parish in South Carolina, plundering and burning plantations, taking captives, and killing over a hundred settlers and slaves. Subsequent attacks around Charles Town killed many more, and in total, about 7% of the colony’s white population perished in the conflict.
