dc.description.abstractThis study emphasizes the role the United States factory system played in Indian affairs during the Early National period. The first two chapters discuss national policy relating to the factories. These trading posts existed from 1796 until 1822. Washington initiated the policy as a means to help bring about a peaceful frontier. Thomas Jefferson desired to use the factory system to civilize the Indians and obtain their land. The War of 1812 disrupted the factory system. Following the war, John C. Calhoun and Thomas L. McKenney attempted to continue with their predecessor's policies, but pressure from Congress and the American Fur Company eventually forced the factory system to close. The third chapter focuses on Sulphur Fork factory and shows the disconnection between national policies and their implementation. Disorganization and ineptitude on the part of the factor caused him to utterly fail at instituting any national policy objective.en_US
