The Ohio Frontier
Crucible of the Old Northwest, 1720–1830

R. Douglas Hurt

This exhaustively researched and well-written book provides a comprehensive history of Ohio from 1720 to 1830."
—Journal of the Early Republic

Nowhere on the American frontier was the clash of cultures more violent than in the Ohio country. There, Shawnees, Wyandots, Delawares, and other native peoples fought to preserve their land claims against an army that was incompetent at the beginning but highly trained and disciplined in the end.
