About

Overview

From the arrival of Europeans in the late 15th century -- when over 500 native tribes, chiefdoms, and confederacies spoke as many as 2,000 languages and dialects -- through the French and Indian War, conflicts erupted in virtually every corner of North America. The battles weren't solely disagreements between colonial powers, but also included Indian conflicts, slave rebellions, and popular uprisings. This landmark set brings together the stories of these compelling conflicts of pre-revolutionary America.
