A carefully researched work that shows how William Henry Harrison, thanks to the now seemingly racist plans of Thomas Jefferson, catapulted himself to the Presidency based on his greed for land and desire to push Native Americans from their lands.
Some of these plans were intended to wipe out Native Americans entirely while some others were meant to curtail efforts of Native Americans, push them away, keep them in controlled environments, completely subjugated, while forcing them to cede nearly all of their lands, at the most minimal of prices, keeping them forever subservient to and dependent upon their white "masters."
