The celebrated Indian Chief Red Jacket was born about the year 1756, at "Old Castle," now embraced in the town of Seneca, Ontario County, New York, three miles west of the village of Geneva. His Indian name was LA-GO-YOU-WAT-HA, or "Keeper Awake;" he got the name Red Jacket from wearing a scarlet coat, richly embroidered, presented to him by British officers during the war of the Revolution. He was a war chief of the Senecas, and died at his residence near Buffalo, New York, on the 20th of January, 1836. Washington presented Red Jacket with a medal in 1792, which he ever afterwards wore, having never been seen without it. He fought under the British standard in the American Revolution. [Pp. 12-13.]
