After the recent readings for Zinn’s book, I began to do some research on the Indians helping the British during the Revolutionary War. I Google “Roles of Indians during the Revolutionary War,” and I sound a very interesting site that backed up Zinn’s statement. Many of the Indians, especially the Shawnee, Creeks and the powerful Cherokee and Iroquois helped the British in the American Revolution.

Also taking into consideration that more historians seem to have the same argument Brown does.
This quote explains that the townsfolk in Dawson Landing’s are making fun of David Wilson’s lectures about the half dog conversation which leads to the townsfolk giving him the nickname Pudd’nhead whenever he was around in town. The phrase from the quote “continue to hold its place” means that the name would be mention of the name of David’s personal nickname in Dawson Landing’s. It also means that the name Pudd’nhead was an insult for David until he realizes that he dose not care about having a bad nickname that would be easier for the townsfolk to be called Pudd’nhead instead of his actual

Title Native American Indians of the Revolutionary War Nearly 250 year after the Revolutionary War, there was a mistaken idea that the war was fought only between the British and the 13 British colonies. However, the Native American Indians played a major role in the Revolutionary War. Long before the Revolutionary War was active, around 1772, the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, and the Seneca Indians created a nation to become stronger and stop the colonists from taking over their lands. The indians had hoped that their lands would be protected by the British after Joseph Brant was influenced them to help.
