About this title


This volume reveals the fabric of American history by tracing a single thread in the fabric. That is the history of the Chautauqua-Erie Region of Western New York. It is a microhistory of the whole of the American past. This volume tells the American story through a focus on the Chautauqua-Erie Region from the arrival of the first people 13,000 years ago. The volume proceeds through the period of colonial and American settlement, i.e., the seventeenth, eighteenth, and the first half of the nineteenth century and examines: * The First People and native history of Western New York * The conflict of French, British, and colonial interests in the region * The war for independence * The first frontier, that is the Chautauqua-Erie Region in the unfolding of America's history * The War of 1812 * The impact of the Erie Canal * Conflict on the first frontier in the Age of Jackson * Growth, change, reform, and religion * The Civil War The cast of characters includes both the usual suspects and individuals previously unreported.
