Oriskany

4.4
Oriskany is a village in Oneida County, New York, United States. The population was 1,400 at the 2010 census. The name is derived from the Iroquois word for "nettles."The Village of Oriskany is in the Town of Whitestown, southeast of the City of Rome. NY-69 passes through the village, which is south of the Erie Canal.HistoryThe 1777 Battle of Oriskany, during the American Revolution, was fought west of the modern village. At the time of the battle, the Oneida village of "Oriska" was located near the battlefield. The location is marked by the Oriskany Battlefield State Historic Site.The village was founded in 1811. The Erie Canal passed through the village until it was re-routed during major re-routing and reconstruction later in the 19th Century.While historical records are scarce, the naming of the village has become something of an urban legend. As the legend goes there was a mix up at the post office - a missing comma. Instead of "Oriska, NY" the envelope was labeled as "Oriska NY" and shortly after "Oriskany, NY" was born.USS ''Oriskany''Oriskany had an aircraft carrier named after an American Revolutionary War battle fought there. The USS Oriskany served the United States Navy from 1950 to 1976. On May 17, 2006, the ship was laid to rest as an artificial reef in the Gulf of Mexico near Pensacola, Florida. Trinkaus Park, located in Oriskany, has several monuments erected in memory of the USS Oriskany. Among the monuments in the park are items from the ship itself including a bell, an anchor, and an A-4 Skyhawk.
