Frontier Diplomats or Agents of Empire: U.S. Indian Agents in Wisconsin, 1812-1845
Life in Wisconsin during much of the first half of the 19th century was defined by the interactions between Native Americans and white settlers moving into the region. Indian Agents were a critical but often overlooked part of this relationship. They were the main conduit by which tribes could communicate with the federal government. They were also the eyes and ears of leaders in Washington. Indian agents also performed critical local roles such as Justice of the Peace and postmaster. Join historian Pete Shrake as he explores this unique federal official and the men who made up its ranks.
