Traveler's Guide to the Great Sioux War*

Traveler's Guide to the Great Sioux War*

The Battlefields, Forts, and Related Sites of America's Greatest Indian War

Created: Friday, April 26, 1907

The Battlefields, Forts, and Related Sites of America's Greatest Indian War
by Paul L. Hedren

Waged over the glitter of Black Hills gold, the Sioux War of 1876-77 transformed the entire northern plains from Indian and buffalo country to the domain of miners, cattlemen, and other Euramerican settlers. Keyed to official highway maps, this richly illustrated guide leads the traveler to virtually every principal landmark associated with the war, from Fort Phil Kearny where the Sioux besieged soldiers sent to guard the Bozeman Trail in the 1860s to Fort Buford, the site of Sitting Bull's surrender in 1881.
