Between Two Fires: American Indians in the Civil War
by Hauptman, Laurence M.
xv, 304 pp. "...the story of the Indian role in the Civil War, and how the war hastened the government's destructive policies against them. Hauptman discusses nine different tribal groups who fought valiantly on both the Union and Confederate sides. Many thought that their participation would mean survival for their tribes--an opportunity to prove their autonomy and preserve their lands. But at the war's end, the newly militarized and industrialized United States turned its destructive powers on the Indians, regardless of their affiliation during the war, overrunning Indian land and decimating populations." Black and white photographs included.
