Wau-Bun
Even if you've read this fascinating classic before, don't miss this new edition loaded with extra features! First published in 1856, Mrs. Kinzie's firsthand account of life in the Early Day of the upper Midwest remains captivating, thought-provoking, heart-rending, enlightening, amusing, and inspiring. It's all here in Wau-Bun: Garrison life and native customs; everyday affairs and extraordinary frontier exploits; a rich and complex convergence of cultures; wars, privation, and struggles for survival; compassion, generosity, and sacrifice; beauty juxtaposed with danger in the wilderness; weighty issues and critical decisions that would reverberate for generations. ...back when Chicago was a prairie...when indigenous tribes inhabited the lands of their fathers...when prominent figures in the annals of history had not yet risen above obscurity...when John H. Kinzie served as Indian sub-agent at Fort Winnebago in territorial Wisconsin. Now, discover the rest of the story in the Historic Preservation Edition: the fate of the Winnebago (Ho-Chunk) Nation after their forced removal from their ancestral lands; the endeavors of the Kinzies after leaving Fort Winnebago in 1833; and the rescue of the Indian agency house-now a museum on the National Register of Historic Places. Produced by the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Wisconsin, this edition also features an introduction and footnotes by renowned historian Louise Phelps Kellogg. Proceeds from the sale of the Historic Preservation Edition of Wau-Bun will contribute to the continuing preservation of the Historic Indian Agency House-a nonprofit museum in its 90th season of operation (2021)-for the benefit of generations to come. Visitors from across the nation and around the world continue to converge at this nationally significant historic site to palpably experience the important lessons of history encapsulated in the 1832 home of John and Juliette Kinzie which so many have labored to preserve. The Historic Indian Agency House uniquely and powerfully provides the physical setting for the historical drama of Wau-Bun. Learn more about the story and the historic site at agencyhouse.org.

Early Narratives of the Northwest 1634-1699

Early Narratives of the Northwest 1634-1699
The history of a State, or a county, writes author J. B. Alexander, "is almost entirely the history of the people who constitute the inhabitants." Indeed, Alexander devotes a substantial portion of his History of Mecklenburg County from 1740 to 1900 to biographical sketches of former citizens of the county, often giving such information as date and place of birth, parents' names, date of arrival in Mecklenburg County, education, profession, military service, and names of spouse and children. Many of these Mecklenburg residents descended from the Scotch-Irish immigrants who populated the early settlements of the county, which was formed in 1762 and originally encompassed a large area that included what is now Union, Cabarrus, Gaston, Lincoln, Cleveland, and Rutherford counties, as well as the upper portions of present-day South Carolina. Later waves of immigration brought settlers from Maryland, Pennsylvania, Germany, and Ireland to the area.

Documentary History of Dunmore's War, 1774 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Documentary History of Dunmore's War, 1774 At a meeting of the Executive Committee of the Wisconsin Historical Society, held on October 15, 1903, Vice President (now President) William Ward Wight made the following announcement: The Sons of the American Revolution, Wisconsin Society, offers to publish for the State Historical Society of Wisconsin such MSS. belonging to the latter society as would be appropriate for the former society to assist in circulating; it being understood that the Historical Society should edit the publication, and that the expense to the Sons of the American Revolution should not exceed $500. Whereupon the Committee unanimously adopted the following resolution: Resolved, That the secretary be requested to convey to the Wisconsin Society, Sons of the American Revolution, the Wisconsin Historical Society's grateful appreciation and acceptance of the generous offer made through Mr. William Ward Wight, to supply the funds for the publication of a book under the direction of this Society. After due consideration, it was agreed between the representatives of the Sons of the American Revolution and the Wisconsin Historical Society, that the projected volume should be devoted to a selection of papers appertaining to Dunmore's War (1774), from the Draper Manuscript Collection, now the property of the Society. A combination of circumstances prevented an earlier appearance of the book; but the delay has in some measure contributed to its betterment.
