A lot of people ask me for books about the history of Peshawbestown, but other than The Eagle Returns: The Legal History of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, by Matthew L. M. Fletcher, a rather specialized and impersonal view, I don’t know of Ottawa-Chippewa books specific to our township locale. I welcome information from anyone who knows of any I haven’t seen.
Meanwhile, I’m happy to stock and offer in my shop Warriors in Mr. Lincoln’s Army: Native American Soldiers Who Fought in the Civil War, by Quita V. Shier. Many members of Company K of the First Michigan Sharpshooters have descendants still in our area, and Shier’s book gives as much detail as she could gather on the lives of these men, both in and outside their military service, making it a valuable contribution to Michigan history and the history of Native Americans in northern Michigan.
Warriors in Mr. Lincoln’s Army: Native American Soldiers Who Fought in the Civil War,
