Forgotten allies : the Oneida Indians and the American revolution
I hunted, fished and trapped throughout the area. This book provided me an amazing opportunity to learn about how the cultures not only collided but coalesced. Feb 03, Elaine Cooper rated it it was amazing. Well-researched with numerous documents from the era. Wonderful source for historical fiction authors. May 26, Leeanne Root rated it really liked it. A more complete look at the real history of the beginning of this country, more people should read this, and others like it.
The authors made the history more interesting than other books I have read about the time period. Sep 09, Bill Sleeman rated it really liked it Shelves: american-history. A readable history of an often overlooked aspect of the American Revolution. The cultural center is quite interesting, giving a look at their history and traditions. The Oneida's were long forgotten until their land claims in the 's and 's attracted much media attention and legal action.
As did their casino and resort. The Oneida's claimed claims that land ceded to them after the Revolutionary War was expropriated illegally. Their claim was upheld by the courts. This caused much angst among locals who thought they owned their land, but didn't have clear title.
It also brought out the "haters" among the local citizens whose reactions were ugly; you know that they are always there just below the surface of civility. In the end a settlement was reached and the legal tumult seems to have gone away. The book gives the history of the Oneida's support for the rebel side in the war.
At first determined to be neutral they were drawn into the conflict, largely due to their location in the path of the opposing armies. The book points out the division of loyalties that emerged among the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy as some supported the British the Seneca's, Cayuga's and Mohawk's while others were pro-American Oneida's and Tuscarora's or mixed Onondaga's.
Excellent book that should be read prior to reading Edmonds Drums Along the Mohawk to enhance both experiences. Dec 16, Jack added it. This book is awsome.

An octavo measuring 9" by 6". In a fine, unclipped dust jacket pages including an index. Illustrated with maps and a section of black and white photographs. About this title Synopsis: Tribal, violent, riven with fierce and competing loyalties, the American Revolution as told through the Oneida Indians, the only Iroquois Nation to side with the rebels, shatters the old story of a contest of ideas punctuated by premodern set-piece warfare pitting patriotic colonists against British Redcoats.
