Summary
On the morning of Oct. 16, 1755, the Hartman family house was attacked by native Americans. The father and son were killed, and two daughters, Regina and Barbara, were carried off. Much of this account includes qualifiers, such as "...as per tradition". The author states, "The latter story is a tradition, but tradition, which differs only from written history in being oral history, transmitted orally from ancestors to posterity, is often quite as reliable as the written kind."

Johann Michael Lindenmuth was born 25 April 1737 in Bödigheim, Germany. His parents were Johann Michael Lindenmuth (1708-1781) and Maria Margaretha Wolff. They emigrated in 1754 and settled in Berks County, Pennsylvania. He fought in the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War. He married Maria Eva Nöcker in 1760 and had two children. He married Anna Catharina Geschwindt in 1764 and had fourteen children. He died in 1812.
Summary
"Johann Michael Lindenmuth has left us one of the better day-to-day journals of the French & Indian War as well as a brief journal of his service in the Revolutionary War...When Lindenmuth was discharged in December 1759, he had fought through a multitude of the battles, skirmishes, and ambushes in western Pennsylvania. In a laconic, direct, and simple style he tells of what happened, who did it, and why. Amid the tales of scalping, looting, murder, mayhem, and of boredom, fatigue, huger, and desparir, Lindemuth also tells us of his family and friends, his ancestors, and his children and grandchildren."
