Abstract
This scene depicts events of the night of February 25, 1643. A Mohawk attack had caused some Lenni Lenape, of the Algonquin nation, to flee through the snow and take shelter with the Dutch in Pavonia. Dutch Governor William Kieft ordered an attack in which at least 80 men, women and children were savagely slaughtered. The reprisals for this attack left the area depopulated by Europeans. Kieft's succsessor, Peter Stuyvesant, would only permit resettlement in a walled village, which led to the establishment of Bergen.

In October, 1910 Jersey City celebrated the 250th Anniversary of its founding as the town of Bergen by the Dutch in 1660. Children from Public School # 11, on the oldest continual school site in New Jersey, presented tableaux commemorating the early events in the city's history. The exercises were presented at Bergen Square, the heart of the original settlement, to an audience numbering over 15,000.
