Sherman learned "total war" tactics against the South during the Civil War. Sherman carried the "total war" tactics west and into the war with the Indians immediately following the Civil War. Sherman said, "The only good Indian is a dead Indian," which at once became a justification and an inspiration for killing Indians.
While Mr. Faulk does a good job telling the Indian Wars' history, I would like to see him express the truth a little stronger.
This is a valuable book in understanding the conflict between the Indians who were resisting foreign invaders. The foreign invaders were murdering scoundrels, and illegal aliens exercising "total war," even to the murdering of Indian women and children, burning entire Indian villages, killing all their animals, and destroying their food supplies to starve them out.
A more despicable man ever lived that William Tecumseh Sherman, yet Sherman is hailed as a hero by many in this country.
Note: All the American Presidents approved of Sherman's "total war" tactics from Lincoln on down.
