Massapequa

Massapequa
Beginnings: "Great Water Land'' was what the first inhabitants, the Massapequan Indians, called the place. When white settlers arrived, conflict ensued. In 1653, Capt. John Underhill, an Englishman working for the Dutch, led troops in an attack on a peaceful community of Indians at a site believed to be near the intersection of what is now Merrick and Cedar Shore Roads. Underhill's troops killed 120 Indians in the only Indian "battle'' on Long Island.
