*** good discussion about Carleton and his concern about scalping early in the ARW. After freeing 100 captured Americans and forbidding scalping, then got upset when some were scalped. Good to start a discussion on Carleton and his issues later, as Lord Dorchester, in 1794 Fallen Timbers campaign.

Northern Indian View of Southern Indian Participation in American Revolutionary War - 26 January 1779Submitted by tjlinzy on Tue, 2011-03-01 14:17
Whilst at the Newberry Library in Chicago, I read the following in Henry Hamilton's journal of the Vincennes campaign, there is an interesting account of the links between the southern Indians, especially the Creeks, and the midwestern Indians, especially the Shawnees.
26th [ed. January, 1779]-- The Chiefs of the following nations assembled at the fort this morning--Shawanese, Delawares, Wyandatts, Ottawas Chippoweys, Miamis, Ouiattanons, Quiquaboes, and Peankashaas--(239)
From 1754 to 1815, the British worked with and against the North American Indians (hereinafter, Indians) to determine who would eventually control the Trans-Appalachian West to the Mississippi River from the Laurentian Great Lakes through the Ohio River Valley to the Gulf of Mexico. This era is being redefined as the Sixty Years’ War to highlight its importance to the Indians of the area and how the wars of the period could be seen from a different lens than the Euro-centric.
