The Fight For The West
From the arrival of Columbus on American shores in 1492 up umtil today, Native Americans have been oppressed by adevnturers, and immmigrants, mostly white men.
In the 1800's their land was invaded and they were forced onto reservations. During the Indian Wars, many Native Americans were referred to as 'hostiles' (a term used to this day by the American military when fighting wars overseas), and massacred by the Union Army. Even the reservations in Indian Territory that had been allocated to the tribes by treaty, was taken over and settled by the interlopers.
These pages not only tell a little of the trauma and heartache undergone by the Native Americans and settlers/imigrants during this period, but also the many atrocities committed by both sides during this important time in the history of America.
The stories have been collated from a number of sources in order to portray an account of how life was in the days of the 'Wild West'.
The writing ends with the Massacre of Wounded Knee.
