Bloody Mohawk: The French and Indian War & American Revolution on New York's Frontier

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Richard Berleth

Narrated By: Jonathan Yen

Date: June 2018

Duration: 18 hours 17 minutes

Summary:

In this narrative history of the Mohawk River Valley and surrounding region from 1713 to 1794, Professor Richard Berleth charts the passage of the valley from a fast-growing agrarian region streaming with colonial traffic to a war-ravaged wasteland.

The valley's diverse cultural mix of Iroquois Indians, Palatine Germans, Scots-Irish, Dutch, English, and Highland Scots played as much of a role as its unique geography in the cataclysmic events of the 1700s-the French and Indian Wars and the battles of the American Revolution. Patriots eventually wrenched the valley from British interests and the Iroquois nations, but at fearsome cost.

When the fighting was over, the valley lay in ruins and as much as two-thirds of its population lay dead or had been displaced. But by not holding this vital inland waterway-the gateway to the West, 'the river between the mountains'-America might have lost the Revolution, as well as much or all of the then poorly defined province of New York.
