Shades of Hiawatha : staging Indians, making Americans: 1880-1930 by Alan Trachtenberg( Book )
9 editions published between 1930 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 872 libraries worldwide
"A century ago, it was U.S. government policy to sever the tribal allegiances of Native Americans, limit their ancient liberties, and coercively prepare them for citizenship. At the same time, millions of new immigrants from Asia and Europe sought freedom in America by means of that same citizenship. In this work, Alan Trachtenberg argues that the two developments were, inevitably, juxtaposed in myriad ways: Indians and immigrants together preoccupied the public imagination, and together changed the idea of what it meant to be American."--Jacket

7 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 348 libraries worldwide
A new assemblage of masterly essays from a foremost scholar of American history and culture. Alan Trachtenberg has always been interested in cultural artifacts that register meanings and feelings that Americans share even when they disagree about them. Some of the most beloved ones-like the famous last photograph of Abraham Lincoln, taken at the time of his second inaugural-are downright puzzling, and it is their obscure, riddlelike aspects that draw his attention in the scintillating essays of Lincoln's Smile and Other Enigmas
