Travel Guide to the Plains Indian Wars by Stan Edward Hoig
Book DescriptionThe historical remains of nineteenth-century Western frontier military posts and battle sites of the Plains Indian wars are disappearing. Time and weather have taken their tolls, and many would have no traces left were it not for the worthy attention of local groups and city, state, and federal authorities. "A Travel Guide to the Plains Indians Wars" provides a general overview of the Plains Indian wars; but it is particularly helpful for anyone planning a visit to the military posts and sites of battle. Stan Hoig has divided this writing into two distinct parts: first is a narrative of the conflicts between American Indians and the US cavalry, Texas Rangers, or pioneers on the Plains and the various military campaigns; and second are chapters providing directions to battle sites and related museums in the Plains states: Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming. Hoig encourages users of this guide to obtain in-depth information about the sites they wish to visit by taking advantage of books and personal accounts, archival records, exhibits, brochures, lectures, and tours available at the museums and visitors' centres, as well as information on the Internet.
