    schema:reviewBody ""The American Revolution was a struggle not only for independence, but for the lands of Native Americans. The jewel in this conflict was the upstate New York domain of the Iroquois Six Nations, where fertile river valleys were a magnet for farmers weary of New England's stubborn soil." "While at first intentionally neutral, the Iroquois were soon forced to choose sides between either rebel or British forces. Seeds of Empire recreates the events surrounding General John Sullivan's scorched-earth campaign against the Six Nations of the American Indians of New York and the Eastern territories in 1779, following the surrender of General John Burgoyne's entire British army at the Battle of Saratoga. Abandoned by both the rebels and the British at the end of the revolution and devastated by the ravages of war, the Iroquois found themselves powerless to resist the post-Revolutionary takeover and peopling of their heartland by the new American nation."--Jacket." ;
