Thayendanegea wept when Walter Butler read their marching orders, which included the British demand that the party slay all indiscriminately. 207 Interestingly, contemporary American authorities had the same information, indicting Rangers over Senecas. 208 Walter Butler bleated heatedly at the charge, but it rang of some truth, for, even at the height of anti-Tory hate-mongering, it was not American policy to whitewash the Senecas, even to inculpate the Tories, whereas it was ever the Iroquoian policy to spare Innocents.
