The Indiana Territory, 1800-2000: A Bicentennial Perspective originated in the June 2000 Indiana Territory Bicentennial Symposium held in Vincennes and sponsored by Historic Southern Indiana. This conference brought together highly respected scholars of midwestern history who were asked to reflect on aspects of life in the Indiana Territory. From that meeting Bigham compiled five important essays; two papers from a related program on William Henry Harrison, governor of the Indiana Territory, complete the volume.
Bigham offers a general introduction to the history of the Indiana Territory as well as brief previews of each essay. The topics cover relations with the British, race relations, slavery, religion, and commemorating the past. The essays that focus on William Henry Harrison address his stance toward Native Americans and evaluate his writings.
This volume offers a vivid picture of life in the Indiana Territory and is a fitting commemoration of the territory's bicentennial.
