Carefully researched, thoughtfully presented.
Forty years after "The Iroquois in the American Revolution" was published, Barbara Graymont remains the authority on this topic. Authors of more recent books and articles borrow heavily from her work.
"The Iroquois in the American Revolution" should be required reading for anyone who is serious about American history. It is an eye-opener that will linger in the reader's mind for a long time.
Standard materials about the American Revolution showcase the story of the "Good Guys," (i.e., the American patriots) and "The Bad Guys," (i.e., the "Red Coats.") One sentence might be found in a history text about the Oneida and Tuscarora Indians who valiantly fought on the patriot side.
Although there is an obligatory portrait of Thayendanegea (also known as Joseph Brandt) in almost every history text book, The Mohawks, Senecas, Onondagas, and Cayugas's tragic faith in pre-war British treaties is rarely mentioned.
This book will change all that. The nuances, the shades of gray, the grievances, the splintering of the Iroquois Nation caused by the American Revolution, are all here. This a powerful tale.
This book is absolutely recomended.
