Impact of the American Revolution on American Indians: Since the discovery of the New World American Indians were very rapidly engulfed by the flood of Europeans who moved steadily into their homelands. 1 When the American Revolution broke out, the American Indians were forced to choose sides in an attempt to protect their own land from encroachment of the colonists. The majority of the American Indians sided with the British government who had afforded Indian lands a measure of protection by the Royal Proclamation of 1763 which had attempted to restrict colonial expansion beyond the Appalachian Mountains. 2 The Iroquois Confederacy consisted of 6 tribes, once the American Revolution broke out the Iroquois Confederacy split; four tribes, the Mohawks, Cayugas, Onondagas, and Senecas joined the fight alongside the British while the Oneidas and the Tuscaroras joined the fight along with the colonists. The tribes that sided with the British undertook many raids against the colonists causing the Americans to launch an expedition in order to devastate the people and crops of the Iroquois. The Sullivan-Clinton campaign is estimated to have at least destroyed 50 towns burning nearly 1,200 houses, all before the worst winter in recorded memory.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
