Civil War and the Indian Wars (Google eBook)
A chronicling of the Indian wars fought between 1861 and 1865. While many know of the major events of the Civil War, few realize there were also Indian wars fought during that period of strife. This account covers those conflicts, from a prewar incident that sparked an Apache war in Arizona to the Navajo war in New Mexico, the Sioux uprising in Minnesota, and the struggle of the Plains Indians in Texas, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, and the Dakotas. Divided by chapters into the five years of the Civil War, this book reveals how the war impacted everyone in America, including Indians on the frontier.
