Description: Often remembered as the president who died shortly after taking office, William Henry Harrison was instrumental in shaping American Indian policy during the early years of westward expansion. More than a study of Harrison the man, Mr. Jeffersons Hammer offers a cultural biography that surveys the military, political, and social world of the Ohio Valley and the frontier. Robert M. Owens traces Harrisons political career as secretary of the Northwest Territory, territorial delegate to Congress, and governor of Indiana Territory, as well as his military leadership and involvement with Indian relations. Thomas Jefferson found Harrison the ideal agent to carry out his administrations ruthless campaign to extinguish Indian land titles. To this day, we live with the echoes of Harrisons proclamations, the boundaries set by his treaties, and the ramifications of his actions.
