Lewis Bonnett, Jr. was the young cousin of Lewis Wetzel and lived with him in his youth.

This book was assembled unpublished papers of Lyman Draper (1815-1891) former secretary of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin. This book combines Draper's even-handed account of this important first engagement with transcripts of the original sources from which he drew upon to create his account. We learn the settlers' version from the letters of Colonel James Patton and Samuel McDowell, and articles in the Pennsylvania Gazette. The Indians' case is well expressed by the Conrad Weiser report to the Provincial Council of Pennsylvania.64 pages, 5.5x8.5, (1995), 2005, 5.5x8.5, paper, i... View more info

Indian Warfare is one of the volumes in Mr. Lobdell's series covering the "Heroic Age" (1770 to 1794) on the early frontier. The three narratives often read like adventure stories. The Indians and the British engaged in guerrilla warfare against the settlers: raiding cabins, slaughtering livestock, killing children and the elderly and taking captive those in their teens or early twenties, who were usually taken to Quebec. Some were adopted into the tribes, like Arthur Crawford, who hunted for almost seven years for his adopted father White Eyes before returning home; or Miss Hawkins, w... View more info

This is the third volume in a series of materials relating to warfare on the Upper Ohio between the end of the French and Indian War (1754-1763) and Anthony Wayne's victory at Fallen Timbers (1794). Previously unpublished, these papers are part of the priceless Draper Manuscript Collection at the Wisconsin Historical Society. The Historical Narrative of George Edgington (1845) is important for its equal treatment of Lewis Wetzel and Samuel Brady, two of the greatest scouts at that time. Peter Henry's Account (1850) contains a dramatic description of his capture by Indians in 1779. Spencer Re... View more info
