    1 thought on “Forgotten Allies: The Oneida Indians and the American Revolution

    1. As a historian fascinated in colonial America, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

It is full of memorable details, including descriptions of Oneida villages and warriors. The tumult of this period did not go unnoticed by the Oneida, despite their desire to abstain from conflict.

    5. Excellent book that should be read prior to reading Edmonds Drums Along the Mohawk to enhance both experiences.
