Little-Known Raids and Skirmishes on the Frontier
Forgotten Fights by Gregory Michno
Book DescriptionIn this unique study, Gregory and Susan Michno chronicle more than three hundred lesser-known but signifi cant conflicts of the western Indian Wars, describing not only skirmishes between Indians and the United States Army, but also Indian raids on civilian settlers and travelers. By shifting attention away from the larger and more famous battles, the authors bring into sharper focus the small-scale confrontations that defi ned the Indian Wars. Forgotten Fights presents vivid accounts of these rarely examined conflicts, giving readers and researchers enlightening glimpses into the unpredictable lives of the emigrants, homesteaders, soldiers, and Indians of the American frontier. An excellent reference book in its own right, it also serves as a supplement to Gregory F. Michno's Encyclopedia of Indian Wars: Western Battles and skirmishes, 1850 1890 (Mountain Press, 2003). Historical and modern photographs enhance the text, while detailed maps pinpoint battle sites.

The men of Company E rode big gray horses that stood out amidst the confusion during the afternoon of June 25, 1876. Twenty -eight of these men were found dead in a ravine after the fighting ceased. But which ravine? Why couldn't the army find their bones only a few years later? The answers, finally, are at hand.
