Indian Blood II, I incorrectly stated that Allan W. Eckert started "the Blue Jacket War."
 He did not.  It seems clear now that Robert Van Trees did.  In fact, to call it a war
is to mischaracterize this mindless tirade by Van Trees and some of his ardent supporters
over a simple academic question:  Was Blue Jacket white?


     Blue Jacket was a Shawnee chief and it is not really important whether he was
adopted or native--any more than it makes a difference whether one of his wives was white,
which Van Trees does not dispute.  According to the information on Carlyle Hinshaw's
website, Hinshaw called for a "crusade," using his word, to protest and suppress the
republication of Eckert's The Frontiersmen. Thereafter, Eckert's publisher was bombarded
with letters and phone calls from the dozen or so people involved.  Letters were sent
and some were posted on the site. Several people wrote Allan Eckert directly.


     When asked for comment, Eckert said that some of the letters he received in this
"crusade" were actually hate mail, personally attacking him and calling him names.
Pointless harassment.  I should point out that none of the responsible Shawnee
scholars--neither Randy Noe nor John Sugden--would join in this disgraceful display of
lynch-mob mentality.


     I was given Hinshaw's web address by another Shawnee researcher.  Hinshaw's
website  at first favorably impressed me, but after I came upon a page of protests led by
Van Trees‘s article entitled "Bluejacket and Swearingen Families Declare War on
Eckert," I was taken aback. "Declare War," he says, in such strong language that makes you
think of terroristic attacks, some kind of crazy holy war for, in his words, our "honored
dead."  This strikes me as unfair and bizarrely un-American, like shouting down the
opposition.


    This is, after all, a simple and rather silly academic issue. If someone--Rev.
Jesse Jackson, say--should write a book claiming that Blue Jacket was actually black and
that historians had been wrong in their account of him all these years, would there be a
similar protest?  I hardly think so.  Why not just write your own book and let the other
fellow write his?


    When I asked Mr. Van Trees about this, he said that the tirade against Eckert was
justified and by US Mail he sent copies of the rabid hate mail that Robert Denton
Bluejacket and others had sent to Eckert--as if that explained everything.

He is inevitably compared to his heroic brother Tecumseh and fails to measure up in both physical and moral stature. He seems hidden in the shade of his brother\'s name, whereas his brother would never have had the stature he received if it were not for The Prophet\'s religion of classical Indian heritage. Lalawethika seemed to be plentiful of both physical and social shortcomings. An unimpressiv

While there is probably some historical basis, it is difficult to imagine a tribe as large and powerful as the Cherokee being forced to move anywhere, although they may have lost

Only fairly recently, the past few hundred years, have foreigners begun to arrive and drastically disrupt the way of life of the aboriginal population. The situation has become so severe that a population that was one believed to be numbered in the millions, was at one point reduced to as few as 220,000 in 1910, and entire tribes have been either irretrievably warped or have disappeared altogether.
