Unfortunate Commotions

A petition by James Hare was found in the Upper Canada Land Petitions (1763-1865).  "He was an Ensign in the Sixth Nation Indian department during the Unfortunate Commotions in America and under the command of Colonel Guy Johnston."

The first time I've seen the Revolutionary War referred to as an unfortunate commotion!
