   ||    Susquehannock War   ||    Maryland Colony vs. Susquehannock tribe

The colony of Maryland declared war on the Susquehannock nation. The Susquehannock (with the help of the colony of New Sweden) defeated Maryland in 1644. The Susquehannocks remained in an inactive state of war with Maryland until a peace treaty was concluded in 1652.

Records from this era are poor and accounts of these early conflicts are incomplete
