John Stuart and the Struggle for Empire on the Southern Frontier by J. Russell Snapp (Review)

J. Russell Snapp’s volume joins a rapidly lengthening list of new studies of the southern frontier in the eighteenth century—all intent on enlarging our understanding of Native Americans, Indian-white relations, and/or the American Revolution in the region. Insofar as it shares these aims, Snapp’s volume is not unique, but to my knowledge no other recent author has offered such a direct challenge to a work that has long been considered standard in the field.
