Abstract

In this important new study, John Bowes untangles the complicated process of Northern Indian removal. Unlike the more familiar removal of the Five Civilized Tribes from the southeast during the 1830s, the removal of northern Indian peoples was more episodic and disjointed, a longer but lesser-known process that played out among a more diverse body of Indian peoples. “In the northern states and territories,” Bowes argues, “removal did not occur on the grand scale seen in the southeast,” but rather “was fragmented and filtered through a diverse set of political, economic, and regional interests” (p. 6).
