The Center of a Great Empire · The Ohio Country in the Early Republic
Edited by Andrew R. L. Cayton and Stuart D. Hobbs

The people who lived in what became the seventeenth state in the American Union in 1803 were not only at the center of a great empire, they were at the center of the most important historical developments in the revolutionary Atlantic World.

“This important volume amply demonstrates ways in which the Ohio Country indeed formed the center of a great empire.”
