Daniel Ingram serves as the Director of the MA Program in History. His research focuses on cultural interactions in Early America, especially those between Europeans and American Indians in the backcountry. His book, Indians and British Outposts in Eighteenth-Century America, will be published in February 2012 by the University Press of Florida. This book studies relationships between British fort personnel and their Native American neighbors during the era of the Seven Years War and the American Revolution and shows how early British military missions into Indian Country were often defined as much by the needs and demands of the local and visiting Indians as by the imperial priorities of Britain and its colonies. Ingram also published in the Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography. He is also a contributor to the upcoming volume, Contested Territories: Native Americans and Non-Natives in the Lower Great Lakes, 1700-1850, edited by Charles Beatty-Medina and Melissa Rinehart, which will be published in 2012 by Michigan State University Press. He is currently beginning a new project which explores the historical and social legacy of the Revolutionary War hero George Rogers Clark.
