Life of Joseph Brant [2 volume set]
Phinney, Cooperstown 1844 - Octavo, 425/537pp., Gilt lettered brown cloth. Rebound. Printed title page of volume 2 is laid inside. The engraved title page is bound in. "The Mohawk Indian chief Joseph Brant served as a spokesman for his people,a Christian missionary of the Anglican church, and a British military officer during the U.S. War of Independence. He is remembered for his efforts in unifying upper New York Indian tribes and leading them in terrorizing raids against patriot communities in support of Great Britian' s efforts to repress the rebellion. He is also credited for the establishment of the Indian reservation on the Grand River in Canada where the neighboring town of Brantford, Ontario, bears his name. Brant was born in 1742 on the banks of the Ohio River and given the Indian name of Thayendanegea, meaning "he places two bets." He inherited the status of Mohawk chief from his father.
