Contents:
Introduction: Fluid boundaries and negotiated identities : intersection, accommodation, and conflict on an evolving frontier -- The Shawnees and the English : captives and war, 1753-1765 / Ian K. Steele -- "This land is ours and not yours" : the Western Delawares and the Seven Years' War in the Upper Ohio Valley, 1755-1758 / Daniel P. Barr -- "We speak as one people" : Native unity and the Pontiac Indian uprising / David Dixon -- "The Indians our real friends" : the British Army and the Ohio Indians, 1758-1772 / Matthew C. Ward -- Two paths to peace : competing visions of Native space in the old northwest / Lisa Brooks -- "A superior civilization" : appropriation, negotiation, and interaction in the Northwest Territory, 1787-1795 / Frazer Dorian McGlinchey -- Three men from three rivers : navigating between native and American identity in the Old Northwest Territory / Donald H. Gaff -- Negotiating law on the frontier : responses to cross-cultural homicide in Illinois, 1810-1825 / Bruce P. Smith -- "Justice and public policy" : Indian trade, treaties, and removal from northern Indiana, 1826-1846 / Phyllis Gernhardt -- Bringing about the dawn : agriculture, internal improvements, Indian policy, and Euro-American hegemony in the old northwest, 1800-1846 / Ginette Aley -- "A perfect Apollo" : Keokuk and Sac leadership during the removal era / Thomas J. Lappas.
Summary: Although much has been written about the Old Northwest territory, The Boundaries Between Us fills a void in this historical literature by examining lesser known forms of interaction between Euro-Americans and native peoples and their struggles to gain control of the region and its vast resources. Comprised of eleven original essays, The Boundaries between Us presents unique perspectives on the history and significance of the contest for control of the Old Northwest territory. The essays examine the sociocultural contexts in which natives and newcomers lived, traded, negotiated, interacted, and fought, asking new questions about power, identity, and violence, both ahead of and behind the frontiers of Euro-American settlement. The essays do not attempt to present a unified interpretation but, rather, focus on both specific and general topics, revisit and reinterpret well-known events, and underscore how cultural, political, and ideological antagonisms divided the native inhabitants from the newcomers. Together, these thoughtful analyses offer a broad historical perspective on nearly a century of contact, interaction, conflict, and displacement. This volume promises to be of great importance to students and scholars of early America, the frontier, and cultural interaction.
