Description
In 1738, Irishman William Johnson moved to the frontiers along New York's Mohawk River, where he established himself as a fur trader and eventually became a landowner with vast estates. Serving as principal British intermediary with the Iroquois Confederacy, he commanded British, colonial, and Iroquois forces that defeated the French in the battle of Lake George in 1755, and he created the first groups of rangers, who fought like American Indians and led the way to the Patriots' victories in the Revolution. As Fintan O'Toole's history makes clear, the key to Johnson's signal effectiveness was the style in which he lived as a "white savage;" Johnson had both a European wife and a Mohawk one, and he became fluent in Mohawk. O'Toole examines documents written by Irish, Dutch, German, French, and American Indian participants to bring to life this complex founding father.
