SOLDIERING IN DAKOTA, AMONG THE INDIANS, IN 1863-4-5
by Myers, Frank
Huron, Dakota: Huronite Printing House, 1888. 60pp. Original decorative printed wrappers; rear wrapper partially restored. Minor chipping to spine. Loss to lower fore-corner of text. Text lightly and evenly toned. Tissue repairs to last two leaves. Very good. In a black half morocco and cloth slipcase with chemise, spine gilt. One of the rarest works about Plains Indian wars during the Civil War period. Myers was a member of the Sixth Iowa Cavalry, under the command of Gen. Alfred Sully, sent into the Dakotas to punish the Sioux in 1864 and 1865. He vividly describes events of 1863-65 on the northwestern frontier, including the rescue of the famed Indian captive, Fanny Kelly. An excellent first-hand narrative of events along the Upper Missouri, including clashes with Indians (e.g. the Battle of Tah-Kah-O-Kee- Ta), Sully's marches deep into Sioux country, and the punishments inflicted on the Sioux by American forces. Very rare. HOWES M929, "b." ALLEN, DAKOTA 648.
