After Custer : loss and transformation in Sioux country by Paul L Hedren( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2018 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hedren is the first scholar to examine the events of 1876-77 and their aftermath as a whole, taking into account relationships among military leaders, the building of forts, and the army's efforts to memorialize the war and its victims. Woven into his narrative are the voices of those who witnessed such events as the burial of Custer, the laying of railroad track, or the sudden surround of a buffalo herd. Their personal testimonies lend both vibrancy and pathos to this story of irreversible change in Sioux Country

Campaigning with King : Charles King, chronicler of the old army by Don Russell( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Captain Charles King (1844-1933) served seventy years in America's military forces and was decorated for fighting in five wars -- a living rebuttal to the notion that old soldiers fade away loquaciously in their downtown clubs. But he did spin yarns. In fact, he became one of the best-known chroniclers of the frontier army and the Indian wars of the 1870s, and an imnmensely popular writer of fiction. From his pen flowed dozens of novels and histories that made him the American Kipling. Long overdue, Campaigning with King is the first study of that remarkable man's military and literary careers, written after his death by Don Russell, a respected authority on frontier history. Russell had talked with and corresponded with King since the late 1920s to produce an authentic and colorful book. - Jacket flap
Powder River : disastrous opening of the Great Sioux War by Paul L Hedren( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Great Sioux War of 1876-77 began at daybreak on March 17, 1876, when Colonel Joseph J. Reynolds and six cavalry companies struck a village of Northern Cheyennes -- Sioux allies -- thereby propelling the Northern Plains tribes into war. The ensuing last stand of the Sioux against Anglo-American settlement of their homeland spanned some eighteen months, playing out across more than twenty battle and skirmish sites and costing hundreds of lives on both sides and many millions of dollars. And it all began at Powder River
Great Sioux War orders of battle : how the United States Army waged war on the Northern Plains, 1876-1877 by Paul L Hedren( Book )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lasting nearly two years, the Great Sioux War pitted almost one-third of the United States Army against Lakota Sioux and Northern Cheyennes. By the time it ended, this grueling war had played out on twenty-seven different battlefields scattered across five states, resulted in hundreds of casualties, cost millions of dollars, and transformed the landscape and the lives of survivors on both sides. It also entrenched a view of the army as largely inept. In this sourcebook, Paul Hedren uses extensive documentation to demonstrate that the American army adapted quickly to the challenges of fighting this unconventional war and was more effectively led and better equipped than is customarily believed. While it lost at Powder River and at the Little Big Horn, it did not lose the Great Sioux War. In the first part of this volume, Hedren considers concepts of doctrine, training, culture, and matériel to aid understanding of the army's structure and disposition. In part two, he dissects the twenty-eight Great Sioux War deployments in chronological order, including documentation of command structures, regiments, and companies employed. In the concluding section, the author addresses how an otherwise sound American army was defeated in two battles and nearly lost a third. The book also features seven helpful appendices, a glossary, and an oversized map showing forts, encampments, and battle sites

Life and manners in the frontier army by Oliver Knight( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The officers and ladies of the Old Army were an elite if exiled group in the Trans-Mississippi West during the period of the Indian Wars from 1865 to 1890. In, but seldom of, Western communities, and often isolated far in advance of homesteaders, they maintained a stylized code of conduct shaping the life and manners of many frontier posts, often under formidable circumstances. Their isolation - social, psychological, and physical - gave them a sense of unity not easily to be found elsewhere in the American society of their time. To bring us a truer picture of their milieu is the purpose of this book
