The Tuscarora Heroes Monument is permanent symbol of thanksgiving to the Tuscarora Nation from a grateful nation for heroically saving the lives of dozens of settlers in Lewiston from a British attack during the War of 1812. Located in the heart of the Village of Lewiston, it is a reminder of the courage of the Tuscarora Nation.
