The Expansion of New England

Sold out

Author: Lois Kimball Matthews
Foreword: Ralph J. Crandall
Published: 1909/2011

6 x 9 pbk, 318 pp.

Originally published in 1909, this history of westward expansion provides an important context and framework for anyone researching their early New England and pioneer ancestors.

Topics include the socio-economic and religious impetuses for migrating first to New England and then westward, war’s impact on the ever-shifting frontier, the settlers’ relationship with Native Americans, the history of the formation of new states, and more.

Nearly thirty detailed maps help illustrate settlement patterns east of the Mississippi River in the 17th and 18th centuries and the population migration shift to Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, and the Old Northwest Territory during the 19th century.
