Billy Caldwell (1780-1841): Chicago and the Great Lakes Trail

Caldwell negotiated one of the largest land trades in American history which ceded more than 5 million acres to white settlers in the Chicago area resulting in the removal of thousands of Native Americans to “Indian Territory.” Kelsey’s latest book, Billy Caldwell (1780-1841): Chicago and the Great Lakes Trail, will be available for purchase and signing while supplies last.
