Almost all the Americans of this 1784-1803 generation who lived west of theĀ .

Almost all the Americans of this 1784-1803 generation who lived west of the Appalachians died fighting hostile Indians or succumbing to illness and malnutrition. But they would not yield their land to the powerful empires of Great Britain and Spain. Dale van Every reconstructs their remarkable stories and breathes life into the epic struggles of a period that has been largely forgotten. Today the United States has acquired 90% of our land area due to these few thousand people who held the frontier at a critical time. Book 1 is titled "Forth to the Wilderness: The First American Frontier 1754-74" published in 1962 and 1987.

Ultimately, these few thousand frontier people decided to remain Americans and preserve the unity country. They kept the "door" open to allow the Americans to retain possession of the Mississippi Valley, then move on to acquire Gulf of Mexico, Texas, and the West.

Ark of Empire" details the witch's caldron that was the American frontier in 1784-1803. Indians and settlers were in a death struggle while English and Spanish agents provoked and prolonged the turmoil for their hidden goals. Appeals to the Government were ineffective to say the least.

No people can be truly free without the means of withdrawing from an illicit regime that is destructive of life, liberty, and property. In fact, the more a criminal defense counsel gets in discovery, the better - when his fees and expenses are "uncapped", of course.

The American frontier includes the geography, history, folklore, and cultural expression of life in the forward wave of American expansion that began with English colonial settlements in the early 17th century and ended with the admission of the last remaining western territories as states in 1959. This era of massive migration and settlement was particularly encouraged by President Thomas Jefferson following the Louisiana Purchase, giving rise to the expansionist philosophy known as "Manifest Destiny".

One reviewer wrote that this is the third of three volumes in this series but there is also a fourth volume. The four volumes are:
Forth to the Wilderness 1754-1774
A Company of Heroes 1775-1783
Ark of Empire 1784-1803
The Final Challenge 1804-1845
This series is an excellent look at the beginning of the United States from the viewpoint of the area west of the Appalachian Mountains. It even gives some viewpoints from the Indian side of the conflicts. The only problem which I have with this Ark of Empire is some careless editing such as placing Alabama and Mississippi west of the Mississippi River. Another example is on page142, the Chickamauga tribe and their chief Dragging Canoe, and the Cherokee chief Attakullaculla are all identified as Creeks, not Cherokees.
These books are fine as a series but each will stand alone without relying on what the others cover.

This book tells the now-forgotten story of how Americans acquired the territories between the Appalachian Mountains and the Missisippi River during 1784 to 1803.

We are rarely taught in school how to envision the United States as it existed immediately after the winning of our independence in 1783. The "national" government was an impotent confederation. The British were in effective control of the lands north of the Ohio River, intending to recombine them with Canada. The Spanish claimed the lands west of Georgia and south of the Tenessee River, hoping to recombine them with their Province of Florida and Louisiana.

With the national government impotent, the annexation of the Mississipppi Valley to the United States would depend on the heroic actions of a few thousand American pioneer families scattered around the frontier of Kentucky and Tennessee. These families waged an incessant war against the Indians and the British and Spanish agents who armed them. They wavered between declaring allegiance to Britain and Spain or maintaining allegiance to the impotent Articles of Confederation government east of the Appalachians. Ultimately, these few thousand frontier people decided to remain Americans and preserve the unity country. They kept the "door" open to allow the Americans to retain possession of the Mississippi Valley, then move on to acquire Gulf of Mexico, Texas, and the West.

Almost all the Americans of this 1784-1803 generation who lived west of the Appalachians died fighting hostile Indians or succumbing to illness and malnutrition. But they would not yield their land to the powerful empires of Great Britain and Spain. Dale van Every reconstructs their remarkable stories and breathes life into the epic struggles of a period that has been largely forgotten. Today the United States has acquired 90% of our land area due to these few thousand people who held the frontier at a critical time. As Winston Churchill might have said, "Never before has so much been owed by so many to so few." Dale Van Every gives life to this epic generation that created the United States of America as we know it.

This book tells the history of a time after the Revolution that I had not studied before. It was a really good read and gave lots of history of the early years of our nation. If you are interested in the struggles with the Indian nations, be sure to read this book.

This book is a genealogical gold mine for researchers whose ancestors hail from Kentucky and Tennessee. It helped me tremendously to read this book and understand the history and times of the time period covered in the book. Now I know where to look and what records to look for. I feel like I know my ancestors a whole lot more and have lived through these tough times with them. I honestly don't know how they survived. This is the best history book I've ever read. The author is very engaging. Thanks to Amazon I was able to find the four part series written by Dale Van Every.

I have not finished the book as I am slowly working my way through my ancestors history, and travel from western PA to Kentucky to Ohio. However what I have read is very interesting, and I am sure I will quote it in my History of the Cripes.

Wonderful slice of San Francisco history.
I bought this book for my dad and he loves it. I was happy to find such an obscure title.
