Description

Restoring the Chain of Friendship: British Policy and the Indians of the Great Lakes, 1783-1815 is a recent title by historian Timothy Willig of Onondaga Community College in Syracuse. His approach to the period is to examine the British policy to First Nations in the Great Lakes region following the American Revolution to the War of 1812. The focus of the thesis is the British policy toward First Nations at its Great Lakes agencies at Fort St. Joseph, Fort Amherstburg, and Fort George. The first chapter examines the Covenant Chain of Friendship over time. Two chapters are devoted to the Iroquois of Grand River who settled the Grand River tract following the American Revolution. The author discusses the role of Joseph Brant as well as the subsequent role of Cherokee-Scot spokesman John Norton.
