Recent Indian Wars
Under the Lead of Sitting Bull, and Other Chiefs ; With A Full Account of the Messiah Craze, and Ghost DanceseBook - 1891
This book was written during the uprising of the Sioux Indians and their kindred tribes, in the Dakotas in 1891. The Indians had declared that they preferred extinction to slavery or cultural assimilation, and thus it was deemed a wise government policy to rid the lands east of the Mississippi of their presence. The government granted migrating tribes large reservations and self-government, provided they remain on these reservations and do what was asked of them.
