Two volumes. Light tanning but generally clean. Sturdy bindings. Faint odor of Lysol. According to the rear cover, "This work as a whole deals with western New York prior to settlement; is largely based on documentary sources, and testifies to much painstaking research. The first volume embraces the period from the first records of white man's interaction with the Iroquois, down to the breaking up of their confederacy after Sullivan's campaign during the American Revolution. It includes the wars of the Iroquois with the Erighs (Eries) , remarks of early travelers, history of the Iroquois confederacy, missionaries, history of the Senecas, the French and Indian War, Sir William Johnson, Joseph and Molly Brant, the Battle of Lake George, French capture of Oswego, expedition against Fort Niagara, Pontiac's Conspiracy, the Treaty of Fort Stanwix, hostilities on the western frontier, the Battle of Oriskany, murder of Jane McRea, Burgoyne's campaign, the Cherry Valley massacre, Catharine Montour, Sullivan's campaign, and the first Seneca settlement at Buffalo Creek. The second volume describes the terrible winter of 1779-1780, remarks of early visitors to the Seneca village at Buffalo Creek, the first school-house, teachers, preachers, churches, names of purchasers of lots, the War of 1812, British vessels captured under the guns of Fort Erie, capture of Fort George, disaster at Stony Creek, burning of Buffalo, and many previously unpublished documents comprising narratives, letters, journals, deeds, Canadian papers, speeches of Corn Planter and Red Jacket, a list of American prisoners taken at Black Rock, and many War of 1812-era articles from the Buffalo Gazette. This work is an indispensable resource for students of the Six Nations Indians in relation to the whites and their participation in the French and Indian War, American Revolution, and the War of 1812. Each volume contains a new fullname index.
