The Iroquois saw the French presence as a threat to their homeland. In this hatred, the Iroquois were aided and abetted by their English allies, who had reasons of their own for wanting the French out of North America. As the fury of the Iroquois attacks mounted, the struggling French colonists were forced to become soldiers. The De Gerlais dit St. Amand family was a 'Chevalier de L'Ordre de St. Louis'.
