The Tuscarora War

From September 22, 1711 to February 11, 1715, the British, Dutch, and German colonists of North Carolina fought against the Tuscarora Indians, an Iroquoian tribe settled around the Piedmont and north-central portion of the Coastal Plain. The colonists had maintained a shaky peace with the Tuscarora since early colonization. The Europeans, however, were known to mistreat and take advantage of the Tuscarora in issues of trade and settlement.
