Discover on CD-ROM one of the most tumultuous times in U.S. history through ledger art, Indian and cavalry artifacts, documents, and artwork. Witness Cheyenne warfare as illustrated in the oldest known Cheyenne ledgerbook, revealed in full color.
Designed as a companion piece to Cheyenne Dog Soldiers: A Ledgerbook History of Coups and Combat, this beautiful CD-ROM brings to light a history little-known for more than a century. Sharing an incredible story told through the pictographic drawings of the elite Cheyenne warrior society called Dog Soldiers, this CD-ROM contains the full text of the ledgerbook found at Summit Springs, Colorado on July 11, 1869.
In addition, the CD-ROM includes a virtual tour of the Colorado History Museum exhibit. From the Sand Creek Massacre to the tragic defeat of the Dog Soldiers at Summit Springs, the historical society's curators pinpoint conflicts with cavalry and other Indians to dates, places, and people in history.
