in the year 1778 two ships with lots of men came to or island. we were fascinated by there ships and the use of iron. We assumed that they were sent by the gods. We treated them with respect and gave them gifts and offerings.
After the men had left they came back again. We were suspicious. The came back armed with lots of guns and ships. Our parents fought back with their spears. trying to kill them off.
one man named John Jackson, Oldest of the privates and a veteran who had survived a long campaign in Germany, was struck by a spear in the face, just below the eye.Other people were falling on the rocks or as they began to wade out, close to salvation.Another man named Private Harrison appeared to the boat's crews to be literally hacked to pieces. someone else named Tom Fatchett went down too, his head as red from gushing blood as his uniform jacket.
