Stackpole Books, 2001 - 532 halaman
  • Articles by William T. Sherman, James A. Garfield, John Pope, Nelson A. Miles, Elizabeth Custer, and others
  • Topics include army life on the frontier, Indian scouts, women's experiences, and commanders and their campaigns

    This is the final installment of a series that seeks to tell the saga of the military struggle for the American West, using the words of the soldiers, noncombatants, and Native Americans who shaped it. To paint as broad and colorful a picture as possible, riveting firsthand materials have been carefully selected from contemporaneous newspapers, magazines, and unpublished manuscripts. A fitting conclusion to the series, this volume offers a more general perspective on the frontier army and its relationship with the Native American residents of the West.
