Overview
Personal experiences of war against the Plains Indians

With the conclusion of the Civil War the American nation turned once again to its 'Manifest Destiny' in earnest, and as the influence of the 'white man' became an ever greater burden upon the hitherto wild western frontier the inevitable escalation of antipathy and open warfare flared with the indigenous Indian tribes of the Great Plains. The 'Winter Campaign ' of 1868 saw the military men who had become household names during the war between the States-among them Sheridan and Custer-once more in the field to subjugate the Sioux, the Cheyenne and their allies. This campaign is reported here by one who took part in it-one of that resolute breed of nineteenth century journalists the special correspondent. So the story of Forsyth's defence of Beecher's Island, The Battle of the Washita and other famous and notable fights are eloquently recounted within these pages together with the writers own personal experiences of camp, campaign and conflict. This is an excellent chronicle of the Plains Indian Wars and an essential addition to every library of the subject. Available in hardback with dust jacket for collectors and a softback edition.
