Lecture by Keith R. Widder, "Beyond Pontiac's Shadow: Michilimackinac and the Anglo-Indian War of 1763," October 8, 2013


"Beyond Pontiac's Shadow: Michilimackinac and the Anglo-Indian War of 1763"
Keith R. Widder, author and former Curator of History for Mackinac State Historic Parks

Tuesday, October 8, 2013, 4:00 p.m.
Hatcher Graduate Library, Gallery Room 100

Widder will explore how early alliances among the British and Indians in the Michilimackinac borderland prevented the Ojibwe attack at Michilimackinac on June 1763 from igniting more violence against the British. Widder’s recently published book of the same name will be on sale.

Please note: due to the renovation, the Clements Library 2013 Events and Lecture series will be held at the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library, Gallery Room 100. Directions here: http://www.lib.umich.edu/location/gallery/unit/125.
