Medallic History of the War of 1812 (S)


Medallic History of the War of 1812: Catalyst for Destruction of the American Indian Nations - FREE eBook

by Benjamin Weiss

The War of 1812, contrary to what many historians assert, was not without severe consequences, particularly to the Native peoples of the newly-formed United States of America. In the guise of “civilizing” the Native Americans, the European Americans forced them to accept a foreign religion, destroyed their culture, usurped their ancestral lands and in the process decimated their population, thereby aborting the dreams of a confederated Indian Nation espoused by their great Shawnee leader Tecumseh.

This treatise will examine these issues using as a historical backdrop commemorative medals issued by the United States which, in addition to celebrating their military victories against the British, duplicitously trumpet their “Peace and Friendship” with the American Indian Nations.
