Shakers of Indiana: A West Union Reader

SKU: 633
Indiana’s little-known Shaker community is brought to life in the letters from a collection of rare Shaker documents and diaries edited by Cheryl Bauer and assembled in this book as well as accounts by William Henry Harrison and other early 19th century visitors to the village that began in Knox County in 1808 and closed in 1826. Two hundred years after its founding, West Union retains two historic distinctions: it was the westernmost major Shaker village in the country and the Shaker community most directly affected by the War of 1812.
