Explanation of the Book:

The great clash between the U.S Army and the Plains Indian tribes Everyone who has been fascinated by the history of the American western frontier has much for which to thank Cyrus Townsend Brady, the author of this book. Brady was a prolific author of both fiction and non fiction and in both genres his abiding interest and knowledge of the history of his own country is a well demonstrated. This book, 'Indian Fights and Fighters, ' captivated readers upon its publication and its success made the series of which it was part highly popular, although it was the fourth, not the first in his 'American Fights and Fighters Series.' Several more 'Fights and Fighters' books, based upon similar themes, followed. Brady relates-with some scholarship and with the help of maps, plans and illustrations-the principal engagements of the Plains Indian Wars in the period after the Civil War. The book draws on the first hand accounts of many of the people who were involved and is notable for bringing before the reader accounts by those who had not previously been published. Herein is a veritable cornucopia of western incident, campaigns, battles, fights and massacres, the full list of which is too numerous to catalogue here. They include the Fetterman Massacre, the Wagon Box Fight, Beecher's Island, the Fight on Beaver Creek, the Washita, the Rosebud and many, many more. This book has become an invaluable, highly regarded and enduring classic of the History of the West. Available in softcover and hardcover with dustjacket for collectors.

Explanation of the Book:

Originally published in 1904, Indian Fights and Fighters regularly appears in bibliographies of significant works on the history of the American West. Embracing almost three decades of Plains history, it contains not only Brady's clear, fast-paced accounts of the Plains wars, but also a number of eyewitness accounts, most of which were written especially for him and which are almost impossible to find elsewhere. The Powder River Expedition, the tragedy at Fort Phil Kearny, the Wagon Box Fight, the defense of Beecher's Island, the Fetterman Massacre, the battles of Washita and Summit Springs, and the campaigns of Crook, Custer, and Miles against the Sioux all are fully treated. The introduction by James T. King sketches Brady's career and evaluates his sources.

Explanation of the Book:

This history concerns the wars with the Native Americans, as the United States expanded westward and sought to exert its control over greater portions of North America. The hostilities narrated include some of the most famous actions such as the campaign of Little Big Horn, and some of the most famous figures in the conflicts such as Sitting Bull, a Lakota Sioux chieftain whose famous resistance stalled efforts of the USA. Some of the principle skirmishes, such as The Battle of the Rosebud, are expertly narrated with the use of sources from both sides. The famous General Custer, whose untimely death - in an event often called Custer's Last Stand - is treated incisively, with comment upon the tactics that prefaced the General's demise. First published in 1904, this book has the benefit of close proximity to the events described. Among other sources Cyrus Townsend Brady contacted many soldiers, most of whom were in retirement, to ensure his accounts were factual and exact. The author wanted not simply to summarize a vast, decades-long series of warring conflicts, but also to make a meaningful addition to the existing body of work on the subject. A total of twenty-seven diagrams of battlefields, and photographs of those relevant to the wars, serve to guide the reader.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1909 edition. Excerpt: ... APPENDIX A. Being a Further Discussion of General Custer's Course in the Little Big Horn Campaign.* I. WHETHER General Custer did, or did not, obey General Terry's orders; whether these orders were, or were not, well considered, and such as could be carried out; whether, if General Custer did disobey General Terry's orders he was warranted in so doing by the circumstances in which he found himself, are questions of the deepest interest to the student of military matters and the historian thereof. I presume the problem they present will never be authoritatively settled, and that men will continue to differ upon these questions until the end of time. The matter has been discussed, pro and con, at great length on many occasions. A number of books and magazine articles have been written upon different phases of the situation. I have come to the conclusion indicated in my own article, as I said, against my wish. In view of his heroic death in the high places of the field, I would fain hold General Custer, for whom I have long cherished an admiration which I still retain, entirely innocent. I have only come to this conclusion after a rigid investigation including the careful weighing of such evidence as I could secure upon every point in question. This evidence consists, first, of a great variety of printed matter; second, of personal conversations with soldiers and military critics, which, as any record of it would necessarily be hearsay and secondhand, I have not set down hereafter save in one instance; third, of let * All notes in this appendix are signed by the initials of their writers to identify them.--C.

Explanation of the Book:

The American Indian Wars, or Indian Wars, were the multiple conflicts between American settlers or the United States government and the native peoples of North America from the time of earliest colonial settlement until 1924. In some cases, wars resulted from conflicts and competition for resources between the European colonists and Native Americans. There was population pressure as settlers expanded their territory, generally pushing indigenous people northward and westward. Warfare and raiding also took place as a result of wars between European powers; in North America, these enlisted their Native American allies to help them conduct warfare against each other's settlements. Many conflicts were local, involving disputes over land use, and some entailed cycles of reprisal. Particularly in later years, conflicts were spurred by ideologies such as Manifest Destiny, which held that the United States was destined to expand from coast to coast on the North American continent. In the 1830s, the United States had a policy of Indian removal east of the Mississippi River, which was a planned, large-scale removal of indigenous peoples from the areas where Europeans were settling. Particularly in the years leading up to Congressional passage of the related act, there was armed conflict between settlers and Native Americans; some removal was achieved through sale or exchange of territory through treaties.

Explanation of the Book:

One of the most important collections of first-hand accounts of the Indian wars of the west is contained in this volume. Not as famous as the Little Bighorn fight, the Nez Perce and Modoc Wars were prominent conflicts between whites and Native Americans that brought the period of Indian Wars to a close. Included in this book are accounts by Chief Joseph, Edward Godfrey, General O.O. Howard, and others who fought in what was then considered the northwest: Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and California. An account and analysis of the Custer fight is also in this book, as is a letter by Libby Custer to the New York Times protesting the depiction of her late husband. Every memoir of the American West provides us with another view of the conflicts that changed the country forever. For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.

Explanation of the Book:

Volume 2 of the American Fights and Fighters series Cyrus Brady's, 'Fights and Fighters' series became popular after its fourth volume, Indian Fights and Fighters captured the public imagination and brought focus to his other works. Brady was a prolific author of fiction and non-fiction often calling on his extensive knowledge of his own country, the United States of America as inspiration. He has maintained his own consistent standard for the delivery of immediate and entertaining prose in volume two of the series-Revolutionary Fights and Fighters. In fact, some might claim that the subject matter of this book goes somewhat beyond his title, though not in ways that are likely to cause complaint among its readers. Certainly the first hundred pages describe highly interesting events in the American revolutionary period 1775-1783. These include the defence of Fort Sullivan, the Saratoga Campaign, Greene's campaign in the Carolinas and several of the lesser known naval actions of the conflict. From this point Brady takes his reader upon St. Clair's notorious and catastrophic campaign against the Indian tribes of the North West in 1791-4. The war with France 1798-1800 is described followed by a riveting account of the war with Tripoli focussing on Decatur, the Philadelphia and the Barbary pirates. The book concludes with the War of 1812 covering several notable engagements on sea and on land. Available in softcover and hardcover with dustjacket.
