Summary
For many colonists, the American Revolution provided the opportunity to continue displacing Native Americans. This book provides an account of the role of Native Americans in the Revolution's outbreak, progress, and conclusion. It provides full coverage of the Revolution's effects on Native Americans, and details how Native Americans were critical to the Revolution's outbreak, its progress, and its conclusion. The work covers the experiences of specific Native American groups such as the Abenaki, Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, Delaware, Iroquois, Seminole, and Shawnee peoples with information presented by chronological period and geographic area. The first part of the book examines the effects of the Imperial Crisis of the 1760s and early 1770s on Native peoples in the Northern colonies, Southern colonies, and Ohio Valley respectively. The second section focuses on the effects of the Revolutionary War itself on these three regions during the years of ongoing conflict, and the final section concentrates on the postwar years. It adds the Native American perspective to reader's understanding of the American Revolution, a critical aspect of this period in history ; Supplies a synthesis of the best current and past work on the topic of Native Americans in the American Revolution ; And shows how the struggle over the definition and utilization of Native American identity, an issue that was initiated with the American Revolution, is still ongoing for American Indians. -- From publisher's website
