Father Rasle's War

Search Revolutionary War Recordsicon, Civil War icon, WW1 Records icon, WW2 Records icon
Sebastian Rāsle (Rāle) was baptized on 28 January 1652 and joined the Society of Jesus on 24 September 1675. He arrived at Quebec 13 Oct. 1689, and lived with the native Americans in Illinois (1692-95) and at Becancour (1705-11) in Canada. He later lived among the Abenakis for whom he established the first school ever in what is now the State of Maine. Rāsle was killed at his mission in Norridgewock, Maine, on 23 August 1724 as he defended his Abenaki people. After his death the war known as Father Rāsle's War started. It lasted for two years in which the native Americans lost their lands with English victory.
