1729: After being ordered out of their village by French commander Sieur de Chépart, who wanted the land to expand his own tobacco plantation, Natchez Indians attack the French colony near the site of modern-day Natchez, Miss., including Fort Rosalie. Warriors killed more than 200 colonists, mostly French men, and took captive more than 300 women, children and slaves.
