Indian War Veterans addresses soldiers' experiences throughout the area of the trans-Mississippi West. As readers will quickly discover, the depth and breadth of coverage is truly monumental. Topics include recollections of fighting with Custer and mutilating the dead at Little Bighorn, the Fetterman fight, the Yellowstone Expedition of 1873, battles at Powder River and Rosebud Creek, fighting Crazy Horse at Wolf Mountains, Geronimo and the Apache wars, the Ute and Modoc wars, Wounded Knee, and much more. These carefully drawn recollections come from a wide array of sources, including manuscript and private collections, veterans' scrapbooks, obscure newspapers, and private veterans' statements. A special introductory essay about Indian war veterans contains new material about their post-service organisations all the way into the 1960s. Complementing the riveting entries are dozens of previously unpublished photographs. Readers will also find a gallery of never-before-seen full-colour plates displaying a wide variety of Indian war veterans' badges, medals and associated materials.About the AuthorJerome A.
