The Buffalo Soldiers on the Western Frontier "Over 180,000 African-Americans served in the Union Army during the Civil War. Of these, more than 33,000 died. After the war, the future of African-Americans in the U.S. Army was in doubt. In July 1866, however, Congress passed legislation establishing two cavalry and four infantry regiments (later consolidated to two) whose enlisted composition was to be made up of African-Americans. The majority of the new recruits had served in all Black units during the war. The mounted regiments were the 9th and 10th Cavalries, soon nicknamed Buffalo Soldiers by the Cheyenne and Comanche. Until the early 1890s they constituted 20 percent of all cavalry forces on the American frontier." From the International Museum of the Horse.

How Lincoln’s Army 'Liberated' the Indians
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo In a recent issue of The American Enterprise magazine devoted to the War between the States (see my LRC article, " AEI is Still Fighting the Civil War ") Victor Hanson, a visiting professor at the U.S. Naval Academy, defends and makes excuses for Lincoln’s intentional waging of war on Southern civilians. This included the bombing, pillaging and plundering of their cities and towns, the burning of their homes, total destruction of farms and livestock, gang rape, and the killing of thousands, including women and children of all races. (See Merchant of Terror: General Sherman and Total War by John Bennett Walters or The Hard Hand of War by Mark Grimsley). It was all justified, says Hanson, because General Sherman and his men were supposedly motivated by the belief that it was necessary "to guarantee the American proposition that each man is as good as another." Sherman’s "bummers," as they were called, were "political avenging angels" who were offended by racial inequalities in the South. They were driven by "an ideological furor, to destroy the nature of Southern aristocracy." The "tyrannical Southern ruling class" needed to be taught a lesson. (Besides, he writes, "rapes during [Sherman’s] march were almost unknown)."

European Expansion in America
Wednesday, June 25, 2003, marked the anniversary of when Lt. Col. George A. Custer and the 7th Cavalry attacked an Indian encampment along the Little Bighorn River in what's now southeastern Montana. What was expected to be an easy victory for Custer and his forces turned out to be a devastating clash. Apparently, Custer had underestimated the number of Cheyenne and Arapaho warriors ready to fight back. In the end, about 260 cavalrymen, including Custer and his Indian scouts, had died. The Indians were estimated to have lost fewer than 100. Since then, a granite obelisk and white headstones have been erected to honor the fallen cavalrymen at this historic site, located on the Crow Indian Reservation. And, finally, 127 years after celebrating their victorious battle, a memorial now stands to honor the Indian warriors who also fought and lost their lives there. The memorial not only honors the individual warriors and their tribes who took part in this particular battle, however. Some also believe it's one more significant step in recognizing and discussing the history of this country from more than one viewpoint.

Book Review
A n extraordinary number of studies about North American Native peoples continues to be published. Very few, however, use comparative history for their perspective. Comparing Canadian and American experiences would seem an obvious focus. Hana Samek's (Albuquerque, 1987) is a notable exception. She made the task manageable by looking at a people that straddled the international boundary.

Individual Indians become eligible to receive land allotments of up to 160 acres, together with full U.S. citizenship. Tribal lands remaining after all allotments have been made are to be declared surplus and sold. Proponents of the law believe that it will help speed the Indians¹ assimilation into mainstream society by giving them an incentive to live as farmers and ranchers, earning a profit from their own personal property and private initiative. Others see in the law an opportunity to buy up surplus tribal lands for white settlers. When the allotment system finally ends, Indian landholdings are reduced from 138 million acres in 1887 to only 48 million acres in 1934. And with their land many Native Americans lose a fundamental structuring principle of tribal life as well." (PBS, The West)

    Old Indian Wars Dominate Bush Doctrines by Jack D. Forbes 27 March 2003 Bay Mills News
    Back in the 1970s I suggested that the way the USA had treated the First American Nations would eventually become a precedent for the treatment of all people. I suspected that the behavior of the bureaucrats of the Interior Department, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and the old War Department, with their authoritarian beliefs, would eventually infiltrate the rest of the government and the courts. With President George W. Bush we are seeing the U.S. policy towards Native Americans being extended to citizens, resident aliens, visitors, enemies, and other countries. Let us examine a few of the Bush doctrines or strategies to discover their precedents within historic US Native policy.
    Preventive War and Sneak Attacks Bush has declared that the US will attack first before an "enemy" has the ability to act. This could, of course, be called "The Pearl Harbor strategy" since that is precisely what the Japanese Empire did. But it also has U.S. precedents against First American Nations. For example, William Henry Harrison, under pressure from Thomas Jefferson to get the American Nations out of the Illinois-Indiana region, marched an invading army to the vicinity of a Native village at Tippecanoe precisely when he knew that Tecumseh was on a tour of the south and west. Prophetstown was a center for the revival of First American culture and political organizing designed to resist the sale of Native lands through crooked treaties.

    In this interview, Donald Fixico, Thomas Bowlus Distinguished Professor of American Indian History and Director of the Center for Indigenous Nations Studies at the University of Kansas, talks about the West before white settlement, the impact of the railroad on Native American life, and the near-extinction of the American buffalo. Interview Questions: What was the West like before white settlers came? The world of Plains Indians and of other American Indians in the West had existed for several centuries. The eighteenth century, in particular, represents the West as we think about it before the arrival of the white man. This enormous area of the Great Plains, Southwest, Pacific Northwest, and Basin area represented the homelands of many Indian communities. At least 28 tribes might be called Plains Indians. Trade alliances existed among these peoples, and protecting hunting domains was important to their economy, depending on the natural resources of the environment, which included antelope and smaller game. North American Indians shared their world with two types of buffalo (plains and wood), eight species of bear, three primary species of wolves, 59 species of eagle, 150 species of antelope and 38 species of deer.

    Morning Star Dawn: The Powder River Expedition and the Northern Cheyennes, 1876 > Customer Review #2: Another Excellent Work From Historian Greene

    Over the years, National Park Service Historian Jerome Greene has produced a growing collection of fine books covering various battles of the Great Sioux WarSLIM BUTTTES, YELLOWSTONE COMMAND (Miles Montana campaign, including the Wolf Mountain and Lame Deer battles), and two books of participants testimony on various battles and skirmishes in the war. The book is certainly well-written although not quite as good as the authors previous work, his classic NEZ PERCE SUMMER, 1877. Amidst all the details on the campaign, Greene provides a good retelling of the plight of all combatants, both White and Indian, faced with the burden of war in sub-zero Winter temparatures. The logistical problems of the campaign were greatly exacerbated by the weather, making it difficult to feed horses and mules with the requisite 35,000 pounds of grain a day in such a remote area. Facts such as these make one appreciate the importance of logistics in all wars. In terms of insight into Crook himself, I especially enjoyed the authors including the extracts from the writings of Colonel Richard Dodge and Dodges low opinion of the close-mouthed Crook as both an organizer and leader of men. Despite Crooks foibles, his tenacity somehow got the job done, that and his having the highly-able Ranald Mackenzie carry out his attack.
