MOBI Ý Carbine and Lance The Story of Old Fort Sill ↠ Wilbur Sturtevant Nye

Co The toll in human life reached such proportions that the government finally turned the southwestern Indians over to the army for discipline and a permanent settlement of the bands was achieved by 1875 From extensive research conversations with both Indian and white eyewitnesses and his familiarity with Indian life and army affairs Captain Nye has written an unforgettable account of these stirring times The delineation of character and the reconstruction of colorful scenes so often absent in historical writing are to be found here in abundance His Indians are made to live again his scenes of post life could have been written only by an army m It was an interesting read influenced by the fact that I live here I loved the fact that many of the places and buildings discussed in this book are places I know and can walk on A must read for people posted here I did find the attitudes towards the Native Americans and African American soldiers insulting at times I had to keep in mind that these were the attitudes prevalent during the time the book chronicles or when the book was written Overall a fantastic way to learn about this wonderful place we are lucky to call home for a bit
