The Memoirs of Lt. Henry Timberlake: The Story of a Soldier, Adventurer, and Emissary to the Cherokees, 1756-1765

Overview

Nothing makes history come so alive as a first-person viewpoint. By this measure, these Memoirs are doubly compelling. The Memoirs present two vivid, mirror images-Cherokee society in 1762, as seen through the eyes of a British lieutenant and diarist, Henry Timberlake; and British society of the same period, as witnessed by three Cherokee leaders who convinced Timberlake to bring them to Britain to meet King George III.

Overview

Nothing makes history come so alive as a first-person viewpoint. By this measure, these Memoirs are doubly compelling. The Memoirs present two vivid, mirror images-Cherokee society in 1762, as seen through the eyes of a British lieutenant and diarist, Henry Timberlake; and British society of the same period, as witnessed by three Cherokee leaders who convinced Timberlake to bring them to Britain to meet King George III.

Timberlake followed 400 returning Cherokee warriors to the center of the Cherokee Nation. As a lone British emissary, his mission was to cement a fragile British-Cherokee peace after more than two years of violent conflict. Timberlake's efforts helped to foster a lasting peace and his observations during his three-month sojourn became the basis of his Memoirs-the best and most complete account of 18th-century Cherokee life.

This first modern edition of Timberlake's Memoirs is abundantly illustrated, bringing a new dimension to Timberlake's rich portrayal. Assembled for the Emissaries of Peace exhibit produced by the Museum of the Cherokee Indian, this collection of period artifacts and contemporary art is a stunning representation of the material culture-both native and British-of the French and Indian War period. A detailed introduction and extensive editorial notes help interpret this 250-year-old chronicle for the modern reader, combining historical research, ethnological data, and archaeological discoveries.
