Colonial fights and fighters; stories of exploration, adventure & battle on the American continent prior to the war of the revolution by Cyrus Townsend Brady( Book )

13 editions published between 1901 and 2011 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, though not the first published in the series, is chronologically the first in Brady's essential cycle of books on the fights and fighters of the American nation. It includes the adventures of the early explorers of the North American continent including De Soto and the trials of the Huguenot colonies. No account of the period should ignore the rapacious activities of the 'Gentlemen of the Black Flag, ' Sir Henry Morgan and other pirates who plied their deadly trade under the Jolly Roger. The 18th century saw a decisive confrontation between Britain and France over no less an issue than which of those powers would dominate the globe in terms of language, culture, influence and trade. Though the conflict was a global one, skirmishes and battles fought in the backwoods and mountains and on the lakes of the New World became known as the French and Indian War, so called because both sides could call on fierce native American tribes of the Eastern Woodlands-the Iroquois and Huron nations respectively-in support of their cause. The story of this war is compellingly recounted here, from the early days of disaster to Ticonderoga and the final defeat of the French under Montcalm by the British under Wolfe at Quebec. Brady's series is regarded as a classic and these new Leonaur editions make it available, in its entirety, to modern readers and libraries
The Sioux Indian wars : from the Powder River to the Little Big Horn by Cyrus Townsend Brady( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spanning the years from just after the Civil War, to the Battle of Wounded Knee in 1890, The Sioux Indian Wars is the chronicle of an important part of our American heritage. At the close of the Civil War the westward-moving tide of settlers had pressed back from Missouri and the Mississippi Rivers the Sioux and their allies the Cheyennes, the largest and most famous of the great Indian tribes. At the time, the territory was practically devoid of white settlements. It was a great sweep of land comprising every variety of climate and soil, from prairies to fertile valleys. The Big Horn Mountains were the most previous section, controlled by tribes fearful of any intrusion by settlers. The many rivers which traversed this territory teemed with fish, and the valleys that they watered were abundantly fertile for the growing of the few crops the Indians found necessary for support

BCR's Shelf2Life American Civil War Collection is a unique and exciting collection of pre-1923 titles focusing on the American Civil War and the people and events surrounding it. From memoirs and biographies of notable military figures to firsthand accounts of famous battles and in-depth discussions of slavery, this collection is a remarkable opportunity for scholars and historians to rediscover the experience and impact of the Civil War. The volumes contained in the collection were all written within 60 years of the end of the war, which means that most authors had living memory of it and were facing the effects of the war while writing. These firsthand accounts allow the modern reader to more fully understand the culture of both the Union and Confederacy, the politics that governed the escalation and end of the war, the personal experience of life during the Civil War, and the most difficult and polarizing question in the history of the United States: slavery. The American Civil War Collection allows new readers access to the contemporary arguments and accounts surrounding the war, and is a vital new tool in understanding this important and pivotal chapter in American history
