This is a brief overview of some of the more famous military campaigns in the West. It is not comprehensive, and so if you are looking for more detail, look elsewhere. However, this is a nice summary of how the Army and settlers won the West and displaced and killed the native population.
This is a good read about the military campaingns in the West.
This book was written sometime in the 1970s by a guy who spend some time in the 7th Cavalry back in the 1930s.
One side of his family is Indian, and he spent a great deal of time comparing the various stories and accounts that transpired during the Indian War.
It is amazing to see how the Indian culture changed over that course of time. I was also amazed at all the very stupid mistakes the Army made when confronting the American Indians.
I had no idea that the U.S. Government ordered the transcontinental railroad built so that they could break apart the Indian Nations. And I thought our government didn't turn bad until recently.
I hope you pick up one of these low cost, used books and read the history before it is lost. Soon, it will be.
