Phil Sheridan and his army by Paul Andrew Hutton( )

13 editions published between 1985 and 1999 in English and held by 1,676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Narrates and interprets Sheridan's western career as commander of the army from the Missouri to the Rockies and from Mexico to Canada. This definitive account of Sheridan's western career not only traces his central role in the final military defeat of the Indians but fills out the other sides of the general, who commanded Chicago after its great fire, quelled its labor riots, launched Buffalo Bill Cody on his career, served as an observer in the Franco-Prussian War, played a key role in the 1876 election crisis, and championed a national park system free from commercial exploitation. - Back cover
The Apache wars : the hunt for Geronimo, the Apache Kid, and the captive boy who started the longest war in American history by Paul Andrew Hutton( Book )

13 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 1,067 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They called him Mickey Free. His kidnapping started the longest war in American history, and both sides -- the Apaches and the white invaders -- blamed him for it. A mixed-blood warrior who moved uneasily between the worlds of the Apaches and the American soldiers, he was never trusted by either but desperately needed by both. He was the only man Geronimo ever feared. He played a pivotal role in this long war for the desert Southwest from its beginning in 1861 until its end in 1890 with his pursuit of the renegade scout, Apache Kid. In this work, Paul Hutton unfolds over two decades of the last war for the West through the eyes of the men and women who lived it. This is Mickey Free's story, but also the story of his contemporaries: the great Apache leaders Mangas Coloradas, Cochise, and Victorio; the soldiers Kit Carson, O.O. Howard, George Crook, and Nelson Miles; the scouts and frontiersmen Al Sieber, Tom Horn, Tom Jeffords, and Texas John Slaughter; the great White Mountain scout Alchesay and the Apache female warrior Lozen; the fierce Apache warrior Geronimo; and the Apache Kid. These lives shaped the violent history of the deserts and mountains of the Southwestern borderlands -- a bleak and unforgiving world where a people would make a final, bloody stand against an American war machine bent on their destruction
The Custer reader( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 1,054 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

America's most famously unfortunate soldier has been the subject of scores of books, but The Custer Reader is unique as a substantial source of classic writings about and by him. Here is George Armstrong Custer as seen by himself, his contemporaries, and leading scholars. Those steeped in Custeriana will discover new insights in these pieces, some published for the first time, some difficult of access, assembled for easy reference. Those led by Custer's legend to make a fuller acquaintance will find here a reliable and complete introduction to his controversial personality and career and their transmogrification into myth. Combining first-person narratives, scholarly articles, photographic essays--as well as original selections by Robert M. Utley, Brian Dippie, Gregory J.W. Urwin, and Eric von Schmidt--The Custer Reader contains four sections, each introduced by Paul Andrew Hutton. Jay Monaghan, Brian Dippie, Charles King, and Chief Joseph White Bull are among those who illuminate Custer's Civil War years; his role in the Indian wars, particularly the Battle of the Little Big Horn; and the evolution of the Custer myth

Without quarter : the Wichita Expedition and the fight on Crooked Creek by William Y Chalfant( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alamo images : changing perceptions of a Texas experience by Susan Prendergast Schoelwer( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This DeGolyer Library major exhibition attempts to explore the development of the Alamo myth itself and to suggest what that myth may reflect about the American character. This investigation has revealed much that is confusing and contradictory. The Alamo's defense certainly was heroic and has thus served well as a standard for subsequent American warriors, but this battle suggests a darker side to the American character as well. The Texas revolution deepened the split between North and South over the expansion of slavery into the Southwest and West. To many of its contemporaries, such as abolitionist leader Benjamin Lundy, the Texas revolution suggested not a fight for freedom but he aggressive expansion of slavery. The link between the Alamo and slavery may or may not be historically tenuous- and in the popular legend it is nonexistent- but the broader question of racism in the development of the Alamo myth should not be casually dismissed. The exhibit explores this theme, specifically in respect to the myth's treatment of Tejanos, or Mexican Texans. -- from Foreword

A surgeon with Custer at the Little Big Horn : James DeWolf's diary and letters, 1876 by JAMES MADISON DEWOLF( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In spring 1876, a physician named James Madison DeWolf accepted the assignment of contract surgeon for the Seventh Cavalry, becoming one of three surgeons who accompanied Custer’s battalion at the Battle of the Little Big Horn. Killed in the early stages of the battle, he might easily have become a mere footnote in the many chronicles of this epic campaign, but he left behind an eyewitness account in his diary and correspondence. While researchers have known of DeWolf’s diary for many years, few details have surfaced about the man himself. Todd Harburn bridges this gap, providing a detailed biography of DeWolf as well as extensive editorial insight into his writings. As one of the most highly educated men who traveled with Custer, the surgeon was well equipped to compose articulate descriptions of the 1876 campaign against the Indians, a fateful journey that began for him at Fort Lincoln, Dakota Territory, and ended on the battlefield in eastern Montana Territory. In letters to his beloved wife, Fannie, and in diary entries -- reproduced in this volume exactly as he wrote them -- DeWolf describes the terrain, weather conditions, and medical needs that he and his companions encountered along the way
