The Ackerman(n) surname originated with their occupation and referred to "a cultivator of the ground, a farmer, husbandman, or ploughman... Today, the term is obsolete but its legacy as a surname lives on in a variety of spellings."Early immigrants appear to have clustered in three major areas of the United States: New Jersey/New York, New England, and the Midwest. This may reflect the common settlement trends for the Dutch, English, and Germans, respectively, in these regions of the country. Today, descendants are scattered throughout the United States. The majority of the biographical sketches cover individuals living in the 1700s and the 1800s. Entries are arranged alphabetically by the first name regardless of the spelling of the surname. Within similar given names, the subjects are arranged more or less chronologically by birth, marriage, or death dates. In some cases, the date used is that of the birth of a child or the subject's assumed participation in a specific event identified in the entry. A bibliography, photos, and a map enhance this work.

 3.  The Role of Native Americans in Military Engagements From the 17th Century to the 19th Century
Karen L. T. Ackermann, Series Editor
2003, paper, index, 240 pp, Heritage Books
From the landings of the first European colonists to 19th century histories to 1950s film westerns, Native Americans have been portrayed with unquestioned prejudice and ugly bias. It would not be until the 1970s that history scholars would begin to seriously demand a change in how Native Americans were viewed and their lifeways studied. The search for a full understanding of North America's numerous groups of native peoples and their contributions to U.S. history continues. This volume explores the Indian-non-Indian interactions from the 17th through the 19th centuries, with a focus on military encounters. The essays are arranged in a roughly chronological order, beginning with early contacts in 1609 between the Lenape and Dutch in the Delaware region, and the Mohawks and French in New France. The Wiechquaeskeck of southwestern Connecticut also deal with the Dutch in Governor Willem Kieft's War in the early to mid-17th century. The Abenaki (1694), Shawnee (1791), and the southeastern U.S. tribes (mid-19th century) deal with incursions on to their lands. The final essay looks at the St. Albert Mounted Rifles, a corps of the Canadian Militia, in 1885, which was composed mostly of Metis men. In these essays, the Native Americans, whether working with the whites or against them, are active participants in constructing their lives under the impact of the early European arrivals and their descendants.
