Captain Claiborne's Lost Isle

(p.187) Epilogue
Brothers Among Nations

Cynthia J. Van Zandt

Oxford University Press

The epilogue briefly summarizes the book's argument and examines William Claiborne's 1677 petition for the return of Kent Island. It argues that the seventeenth-century colonial American world had changed dramatically and irrevocably by the 1670s, by which time the extraordinary influence of intercultural alliances along the Atlantic seaboard had largely passed. By then the Susquehannocks no longer played such a pivotal role in alliances linking peoples from Iroquoia to the Chesapeake Bay.
