The Indiana Territory, 1800–2000: A Bicentennial Perspective
In June 2000, highly respected scholars of Midwestern history, including Andrew Cayton, Nancy Rhoden, and James Madison, gathered at the Indiana Territory Bicentennial Symposium to reflect on the state of knowledge regarding different aspects of life in the Indiana Territory. The meeting produced six important essays that Darrel Bigham has compiled for this volume. These pieces offer a vivid picture of life in the Indiana Territory, an exploration of the relationship between history and memory, and a fitting commemoration of the Territory's bicentennial.
