Summary
This volume is a collection of several different kinds of important historical documents published by the Michigan Pioneer and Historical Society. It is devoted to another installment of materials selected from the Canadian Archives at Ottawa by the Society's representative, B.W. Shoemaker, in this case chosen to illuminate British influence, perspectives, and activities in the Great Lakes region between 1721 and the end of America's Revolutionary War. These documents are concerned with Detroit, Michilimackinac, Mackinac, and St. Joseph and other Upper Country military and Upper Posts. A report on the American Colonies was written on September 8, 1721 as a "representation of the Lords' Commissioners for Trade and Plantations to the King" and contains an official account of French and British friction in the Indian territories between 1712 and 1721. Brief reports written in 1761 (Indian trade in the Upper Country) and 1762 (to General Jeffery Amherst from Thomas Gage on the condition of Montreal) are also included. There are military dispatches from General Amherst (1758-1762) and letters sent to and from Col. Henry Bouquet (1759-1765) that shed light on events associated with the French and Indian War. Excerpts from the Haldimand Papers are continued from Volume 11 and cover the years from 1773 to 1781. They consist chiefly of correspondence among British officers stationed at frontier posts and with their commanding officer, General Frederick Haldimand, at Quebec. These documents shed light on such aspects of military life as inventories, stores, invoices, reparations, requests for supplies, and the complexities and mechanisms of British and Native American relations. An appendix with notes and an index appear at the end of the volume.
