Across The First Divide: Frontiers Of Settlement And Culture In Augusta County, Virginia, 1738-1770, Nathaniel Turk Mccleskey

Europeans and Indians existed there in greater relative concentrations than anywhere else in North America, and each European colony and Indian nation constituted a different locus of trade, diplomacy, and war. Because of the relatively high population density and national and ethnic complexity of the region, commercial, diplomatic, and military relations there exhibited a different character than in earlier-colonized regions from Virginia northward and in the Caribbean.;The southeastern Indians existed in a state of dependency in the eighteenth century ...

The Winds Of War And Change: The Impact Of The Tuscarora War On Proprietary North Carolina, 1690-1729, Christine Ann Styrna

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

During the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries ...
