ANTI-INDIAN RADICALISATION IN THE EARLY AMERICAN WEST, 1774-1795

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The article is a close examination of the ways in which the lived experience of violence in Kentucky and the wider Ohio Valley served to radicalise anti-Indian attitudes in the region. In essence, it argues that one of the most revolutionary changes to occur during the period of the Revolution was a) the hardening of anti-Indian attitudes and b) the way in which that attitude was canonised by the community and, over time, disseminated into the popular culture.
