About this product
- DescriptionThe vivid peoples and cultures of eighteenthcentury French Illiis Fort de Chartres, built in 17191720 in the heart of what would become the American Midwest, embodied French colonial power for half a century. Lives of Fort de Chartres, by David MacDonald, details the French colonial experience in Illiis from 1720 to 1770 through vivid depictions of the places, people, and events around the fort and its neighboring villages. Subjects treated in the book include French-Native American relations, the fur trade, early Illiis agriculture, and tensions among different religious orders. Together, the biographies and historical narrative in the volume illuminate the challenges that shaped the French colonies in America. Both informative and entertaining, Lives of Fort de Chartres contributes to a more complete understanding of the French colonial experience in the Midwest and portrays a vital and vigorous community well worth our appreciation.
