    No, because it's not in the history books.  But I can guess.  I live in a tract of land described in the history books as 'fertile farmland' when Samuel de Champlain founded 'Montreal'. 70 years before, Jacques Cartier described it as a 'fortified Iroquois village' where maize was grown.  The history books describe the unprovoked attacks of the Iroquois upon the innocent town of Montreal.
