Book Overview
The Indian wars of the 19th century played an intrinsic role in shaping American history. During the half-century period from 1840 through 1890, the Plains Indians found themselves in unavoidable conflicts with white settlers, particularly the United States government and its military forces. As a result, these native residents lost their freedom and their way of life as nomadic hunters and were eventually forced onto reservations. The Wounded Knee Massacre: Landmarks of the American Mosaic focuses on events from the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876 to the tragic slaughter of 300 Lakota Sioux on December 29, 1890. The book closely examines the factors and circumstances that led up to the slaughter, providing an accessible and straightforward look into the Wounded Knee massacre that will captivate both high school and college-level students. An explanation of the event's legacy, including the Native American takeover of Wounded Knee in the 1970s, is also presented.
