Sample text

Colin Calloway, in The Scratch of a Pen (2006), rightly contends that the British victory in the Seven Year’s War – also known as “The Great War for Empire” – formalized in the 1763 Peace of Paris radically changed the course of American history. He argues that few wars have had a more profound and lasting impact on American history as the Seven Years’ War. The first test of the new empire occurred in the Ohio Country and the pays d’en haut before the war officially ended at the Peace of Paris. Gregory Evans Dowd’s A Spirited Resistance (1992) explains the Indian movement – the anti-imperial struggle – to resist Anglo-American expansion.

Hinderaker’s book is especially important for understanding Virginians’ war of conquest in Kentucky during Lord Dunmore’s War (1774), which often gets lost between military narratives of the colonial period that end in 1765 and the War for Independence that started in 1775. Richter’s Facing East from Indian Country (2001) is a broad synthesis that repositions the view of colonial history from the eastern seaboard to Indian lands. Identity studies developed concurrently, and in some ways, symbiotically with ethnohistory.
