Table of Contents
In May of 1865, the United States celebrated the end of the American Civil War, but even as this nation celebrated the end of war, violence continued in the West, as it would for much of the rest of the century. Indians pushed ever westward by the encroachment of civilization fought back, making war upon the settlers, infrastructure and the economy of the West, while men of bad character attempted to gain their own advantage. Indeed between the end of the Civil War and the turn of the century it was upon the Western frontier that the men of the U.S. Army were called to service. Over 1,200 men would answer their nation's greatest calling, giving their lives in service to their country. These men, their service, sacrifice and heroism have finally been recognized in this comprehensive work.
