As such, it was... More > on the frontline of the great race war between Europeans and American Indians—and as this book powerfully demonstrates, became symbolic of that bloody and brutal conflict. The first major construction in the city was the large timber-framed Fort Dearborn—and it was just outside this fort in 1812 that dozens of men, women, and children were massacred by Indian attackers.

Helm; and other important papers which give insight into these events.< Less
