Taking place after the Continental Army destroyed a string of Native American villages, the Battle of Newport signaled the end of the Sullivan Campaign, the drive ordered by George Washington to remove the mostly pro-British Iroquois nations from the New York frontier and end the threat they posed. Actual battlefield casualties were light on either side, but the American victory hear allowed the Continentals to destroy three more villages before returning home, their mission completed.
