10 - Enoch Brown School Massacre

Pennsylvania, 1764 - three Lenape Indians creep into Enoch Brown's schoolhouse; massacring the schoolmaster and ten children.  Is this the first rampage killing in an American school?   In this episode, we venture far and wide, through two wars, vigilantism and a scalp bounty in an effort to answer that question.
