The focus of this volume, published originally in 1907, is to gather together accounts of the various French pioneers and settlements established in the United States during the latter part of the 18th and early 19th centuries. The chapter on French Louisiana, for example, recounts the arrival in 1785 of a number of French Acadians whose transit was subsidized by the King of France. This comprehensive work includes entire chapters on French soldier-settlers; the Huguenots; French travelers and their memoirs; the Bonapartes and other famous exiles; French settlements in Kentucky, Indiana, and Iowa; and so forth. Appended to the text, which places hundreds if not thousands of French migrs in the United States at a particular moment in time, are an annotated bibliography, a list of French place names in America, and an index to names and subjects.
