This new series from Indiana University Press will offer a wide range of books that address military conflicts in the American heartland. Broadly considered, the American heartland includes the territory between the Appalachian Mountains and the Missouri River Valley, with a special emphasis on the Midwest and Ohio Valley.
Periods under consideration include the French and Indian/Seven Years War, the American Revolution, the War of 1812, and the Civil War and Reconstruction, as well as the myriad smaller scale wars in the region. The series will include books that address both military and non-military aspects of war in the Heartland. Non-military subjects will emphasize internal divisions within Heartland communities that manifest themselves in guerrilla conflict, divided households, questions of loyalty, slavery and emancipation, European and Native American relations, regional identity, immigration and migration, and struggles over the development of a Heartland capitalist economy.
