Soldier and Brave: Historic Places Associated with Indian Affairs and the Indian Wars in the Trans-Mississippi West. New Edition. National Survey of Historic Sites and Buildings, Volume XII.
Ferris, Robert G., Ed.
One of a series of books designed to avail the public of the studies conducted by the National Survey of Historic Sites and Buildings, this book incorporates survey and evaluation reports prepared by the National Park Service historians and archeologists. Divided into 2 sections, Part 1 deals with the historical background relative to 19th century conflicts between American Indians and U.S. military personnel. Part II presents a survey of historic sites and buildings comprised of over 200 entries. Each entry includes a symbol designating the location as National Park Service Areas; National Historic Landmarks (buildings, monuments, and sites which meet the criteria of national significance in commemorating the history of the U.S.); and Other Sites Considered (those deemed by the Advisory Board to possess noteworthy historical value but not national significance). Additionally, each entry is identified by an address and/or explicit location and a brief summary of its historical significance. Numerous illustrations, maps, and an index serve as further aids to appreciating the forts, agency sites, missions, reservation trading posts, fur trading posts, and battlefields associated with the history of Indian Affairs in the Trans-Mississippi West.
