      2013 – 03 - President Washington's Indian War: The Struggle for the Old Northwest, 1790-1795. Wiley Sword. 1985. 400 pages.The struggles on the ground of the early Republic tend to be overlooked in the greater struggle of ideas. To bad because there are many great lessons and stories in the actions behind those ideas.

      Wiley Sword has written the definitive book on one of the most important chapters of our national history; a chapter that has unaccountably remained obscure and understudied despite its overwhelming importance to the development of the United States. The Indian War of 1790 to 1795 was an important postscript to the Revolution, involving undefeated belligerents and a continuing, undeclared cold war with Britain. It was central to the eventual development of a professional, standing army in the Un [...]

      This book contains the skeletons in George Washington's closet and, by extension, some of the original sins of the United States. The author describes the main political and military events between the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 that occurred in the Midwest (the old "Northwest"). Nobody looks good here: not the British-Canadians, nor the Indians, but especially not the Americans, who act like the only reason that they fought for their independence was so they could wipe out the Indian [...]

      Excellent research and attention to detail, plus profound observations on the unfolding and outcomes of the conflict. Swords's neutral view and ample Indian narratives are refreshing. However, the book requires existing understanding of the background and history that lead up to the conflict, as numerous names and battles are mentioned without extrapolation. Thankfully, this can be supplemented by quick searches.

    5. Mark Luongo on said:

      Disappointing. Less a military history and more of a discussion of the endless issues which resulted, preordained if you will, of the loss of Indian land to westward expansion & growth. Washington? Rarely mentioned.

      One of the few books about the Northwest Indian War. A good overview.
