David McCullough Ö 7 READ REVIEW × eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ö David McCullough READ The Pioneers 107 Pulitzer Prize–winning historian David McCullough rediscovers an important and dramatic chapter in the American story the settling of the Northwest Territory by dauntless pioneers who overcame incredible hardships to build a community based on ideals that would come to define our countryAs part of the Treaty of Paris in which Great Britain recognized the new United States of America Britain ceded the land that comprised the immense Northwest Territory a wilderness empire northwest of the Ohio River containing the future states of Ohio Indiana Illinois Michigan and Wis. This book is infuriating The fact that books that are so blatantly offensive towards Indigenous people can still be published in 2019 is disgusting This book ignores decades of scholarship by Native and allied historians of the region in favor of nationalist propaganda Skip this and read Susan Sleeper Smith s book Indigenous Prosperity and American Conuest instead which covers the Ohio River valley in a similar time period and argues that far from being a primeval wilderness this region was actually a thriving center of Indigenous prosperity and that is exactly why Americans wanted to colonize it Some uotes from just the description and first chapterThey and their families created a town in a primeval wilderness while coping with such frontier realities as floods fires wolves and bears no roads or bridges no guarantees of any sort all the while negotiating a contentious and sometimes hostile relationship with the native people But in all the immense territory to the northwest of the Ohio River the territory from which five states were to emerge Ohio Indiana Illinois Michigan and Wisconsin there was as yet not one permanent legal settlementA few remote forts had been established and there were hunters trappers fur traders and suatters those who settled wherever they chose and without legal claim to the landMuch too was reported of forests teeming with wolves bears wild boars panthers rattlesnakes and the even deadly copperheads And as every easterner knew there was the Indian menace the many native tribes who considered the Ohio country their rightful God granted domain Much blood had already been shed in wilderness battles and atrocities committed by both natives and white men These were realities well known throughout the east and particularly on the minds of those gathered at the Bunch of Grapes a paragraph of overly explicit description of massacres by and of Native peopleOnly the year before the Bunch of Grapes meeting one of the group General Benjamin Tupper as part of a government surveying party had been turned back from entering the Ohio country so severe was Indian resistance to the encroaching settlers
