Beschreibung

"Indian Fights & Fighters: Campaigns of Generals Custer, Miles, Crook, Terry, & Sheridan with the Sioux" by Cyrus Townsend Brady is a history that covers the most famous Indian Wars of the Great Plains----those against the Sioux and Cheyenne.

Cyrus Townsend Brady (1861-1920) was an Episcopal clergyman and historian as well as a novelist. He was graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1883. In 1889, he was ordained a deacon in the Episcopal church and was ordained a priest in 1890.

Brady published over 70 novels, all with an accurate historical basis, many of them based on incidents and historical figures in American history. He also published non-fiction histories in a series called "Fights And Fighters." Brady used many primary sources such as diaries, letters, and journals, both published and unpublished, which made him unusual for popular history authors of his time. He also wrote in clear, simple language that made his books popular; unlike the stuffy verbose prose of the professional historian of his day.

This book, "Indian Fights & Fighters: Campaigns of Generals Custer, Miles, Crook, Terry, & Sheridan with the Sioux" deals with the struggle of the Sioux & Cheyenne to stop the invasion of white settlers into their hunting grounds. These wars produced the famous Indian Chiefs Gall, Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, and Little Big Man. They also led to the most famous battle of all of the U. S. Indian Wars. This was the Battle of the Little Big Horn in which Custer & his command were wiped out. Brady does an unusual thing in writing this history. He incorporates into this work some actual eyewitness accounts, especially in Appendix A. This treatment gives a more complete view of the wars than the usual straight historical treatment, as it allows the airing of the often conflicting views of the participants to be heard.

A must-read for those interested in the Indian Wars of the 19th Century. This e-book contains the illustrations Brady used in the original volume.

There are approximately 124,400+ words and approximately 414+ pages at 300 words per page in this e-book.

NOTE: This book has been scanned then OCR (Optical Character Recognition) has been applied to turn the scanned page images back into editable text. Then every effort has been made to correct typos, spelling, and to eliminate stray marks picked up by the OCR program. The original and/or extra period images, if any, were then placed in the appropriate place and, finally, the file was formatted for the e-book criteria of the site. This means that the text CAN be re-sized, searches performed, & bookmarks added, unlike some other e-books that are only scanned---errors, stray marks, and all.
