Williams ï 2 Free download Dunmores War Read ↠ 2 The War for the Ohio Country That Set the Stage for the American Revolution and an Independent United StatesKnown to history as “Dun’s War” the 1774 campaign against a Shawnee led Indian confederacy in the Ohio Country marked the final time an American colonial militia took to the field in His Majesty’s service and under royal command Led by John Murray the fourth Earl of Dun and royal governor of Virginia a force of colonials including George Rogers Clark Daniel Morgan Michael Cresap Adam Stephen and Andrew Lewis successfully drove the Indians from the territory south of the Ohio River in parts of present day West Virginia Ohio and Kentucky Although it proved to be the last Indian conflict of America’s colonial era it is often neglected in histories despite its major influence on the conduct of the Revolutionary War that followed In Dun’s War The. Award winning historian Glenn F Williams takes on the task of bringing the rarely covered precursor to the Revolutionary War to the forefront chronicling Lord Dun s War with meticulous research and exceptional understanding of the customs treaties and factors that pitted Native Americans Virginians and Pennsylvanians against one another Usually this conflict is overshadowed by events such as the Boston Tea Party or mentioned briefly in various biographies especially those with an emphasis on Dun s later American Revolution infamy in daring to set slaves free for the British cause Yet Williams makes the case early on that John Murray 4th Earl of Dun and royal governor of Virginia the Shawnee and specifically Virginians have far too often been viewed in an unjustified light setting the record straight with a masterful introductionFollowing the end of the French and Indian War the British were granted lands south of the Ohio River from the Six Nations of the Irouois and it s here that Williams begins to evaluate prior treaties and claims from both the Native American Virginian and Pennsylvanian colony s perspective all of which border and surround the Ohio territory being contested Williams takes us through the embers that inflame what becomes Lord Dun s War with concise accounts of frontier settler mischief and prejudice from both Whites and Natives alike He describes how Cresap s War rightfully enraged members of the Mingo nation with the unmitigated murder of peaceful Chief Logan s family including women and children Unknown to Logan the tragedy was orchestrated by the warmongering militiaman Daniel Greathouse This ignorant and malevolent action would go on to create years of retribution and brutal yet perhaps justified revenge from Logan s Mingo tribe and the Shawnee as they break from the peaceful Irouois Confederation and terrorize encroaching Whites and other solitary frontier Westerners whom are easy targets for vengeanceWilliams uses an extensive array of primary sources and research when detailing Native American and Colonial standards of the era and expertly explains the predicament of the neutral Delaware tribe whom are caught in the middle of the feud between Pennsylvania Virginia and the Shawnee nation In an intense and nail biting standoff of negotiation as the Delaware are engaging with the Virginia Militia they are fortunately saved unnecessary bloodshed and an inevitable defeat by finding out that the Pennsylvanians had maliciously and falsely told them of the Virginia Colony s intention of making war and taking their lands This engagement and it s subseuent battles are highlighted by the involvement of future Revolutionary War heroes Daniel Morgan and George Rogers Clark and Williams never misses the opportunity of bringing the intensity and historical accuracy of eighteenth century warfare to the forefront When he saw the brave s painted face appear above his rifle s front sight post Hargiss sueezed the trigger The lock released the hammer holding the flint which struck the frizzen causing a shower of sparks to ignite the primer in the pan with a flash Following a discernible split second delay the propellant in the chamber exploded The resulting charge of gas seeking an escape from the bore sent the projectiles spinning toward and then out of the muzzle at the target while a cloud of dense acrid smoke engulfed the rifleman Both bullets struck the warrior in the neck and killed him instantlyFresh from the laurels of the French and Indian War Arthur St Clair under the helm of Pennsylvania royal Governor John Penn is adamant about pointing the blame and continuously suspecting Dun and the Virginian Militia of infringing upon prime territory between both colonies In response Virginia s George Croghan and John Connolly actively dispute the ownership and rights that they claim as Virginian soil using the backcountry and wilderness skillsets of the yet to be discovered frontier legends Daniel Boone Michael Stoner and other hardy surveyors Dun s War is fast paced and contains a treasure trove of detail on the geopolitical forces that clash where at times the reader may feel a bit bogged down with fact after fact being thrown in their direction However this is all too necessary as key events subjects and cultures are interwoven leading to a domino like effect of a war that perhaps was unavoidableUndoubtedly Williams work is the definitive account of Lord Dun s War and is easily accessible for anyone looking for general knowledge or further evaluation of the combat and politics at hand With a multitude of facts and figures to digest and a cast of characters and minor appearances that Revolutionary War buffs will be surprised and delighted by including the likes of Horatio Gates Alexander McKee Simon Kenton and William Crawford Concluding with a concise and collective summary that vindicates Dun s actions and hints to the coming irony of Virginians taking arms against the Earl in the American Revolution the book contains resourceful maps and illustrations as well Read the Full Review and More
