Summary
This volume is a collection of several different kinds of important historical documents published by the Michigan Pioneer and Historical Society. This is the first of several volumes that contain excerpts from the "Haldimand Papers," materials culled from Canadian archives in Ottawa by the Society's representative, B.W. Shoemaker, to illuminate British influence and activities in the Great Lakes region during the era of the American Revolution and its aftermath. The Haldimand Papers consist chiefly of the correspondence of frontier-based British officers with each other and their commanding officer, General Frederick Haldimand, at Quebec. The documents emphasize European, Native American, and American relations from 1776-1784 and frequently address issues connected with the Revolutionary War. There is a description of Michilimackinac in 1781, a report of Native American Councils at Detroit, a trip to Lake Superior in 1784, and papers concerning Samuel Robertson, a prisoner. In addition, there is a presidential address, and reports, memorials, personal reminiscences, and local history papers presented at the annual meeting of the Pioneer Society in 1886. There are also papers discussing the American settlement of Ottawa County, read in honor of the county's semi- centennial celebration, with attention to the area's soil and climate, pioneer settlements and fruit culture, commerce and ship-building, early newspapers and churches (Dutch, German, and English-speaking), and its medical and educational history. There is also an eye-witness account of the fire that devastated Holland, Michigan in 1871. An index appears at the end of the volume.
