Joseph Brant

Joseph brant was an interesting character. It's too bad he was never properly remembered; most Tories and Indians have been glossed over, or demonized, in American history.

it all has to do with who is collecting/sharing the history and why.

I'm reading a good book right now about the history of collecting and sharing history in Philadelphia,
"First City" by Gary Nash.

good stuff.

Gary Nash also wrote an interesting book called "The Unknown American Revolution." It's a bit flawed, but fascinating nonetheless.
