Item Description: A Plus Printing Co., Tucson, Arizona. Spiral/Comb. Book Condition: New. No Jacket. Limited Edition Reprint. 8.5" x 11". Tales of Kansas in the Civil War: The Fifth, Sixth and Ninth Cavalry Regiments Compiled from excerpts from various volumes of the Kansas State Historical Society, this NEW spiral-bound 75 page booklet is photocopied on 8.5" x 11" 60# paper. The front cover is protected by a vinyl sheet. CONTENTS "Sixth Kansas Cavalry and Its Commander" -- The commander referred to by the author, Charles E. Cory, was Lieutenant Colonel Lewis R. Jewell. The Sixth Kansas Cavalry was "different from most regiments of the United States army." Most rode their own horses, many wore civilian clothes and they were the "finest foragers that ever went to war since the days of vandals." Among the incidents related are "The Burning of Fort Scott -- Which Didn't Happen," an incidental (but friendly) meeting with Quantrill, and the Battle of Cane Hill including a sketch of the battleground. (Vol. XI 1909-1911) "A Kansas Soldier's Escape from Camp Ford, Texas" -- George W. Martin writes the story of Capt Robert Henderson, Company G, Sixth Kansas volunteer cavalry, who was captured by Confederates and sent to Camp Ford. He and two companions met numerous obstacles as they tried to make their way back to Union lines. (Vol. VIII 1903-1904) "Campaigning in the Army of the Frontier" -- Albert Robinson Greene of Company A, Ninth Kansas Cavalry, gives a colorful account of his Civil War adventures -- falling asleep his first night on guard duty, eating milk and donuts, an impromptu horse race, and even getting in some fighting now and then. He wrote from memory, aided by a diary he kept during part of his service. Here's a sample of his writing: On the 28th of November our advance guard was fired on while crossing Turkey creek, a few miles north of Neosho, Mo. We had one man badly wounded, and had no means of knowing whether the guerrillas suffered or not, as they were in a safe place and got away after a few shots at them. The next day we reached Neosho, and the officers got up a dance in the office of the Herald newspaper. The "sesesh" ladies didn't seem at all averse to having "Federals" for partners, and the fun was fast and furious until a late hour. (Vol. XIV 1915-1918) "Massacre of Confederates by Osage Indians" -- This article, by W.L. Bartles, a member of Company G, Ninth Kansas, tells of a bloody incident that occurred in the area of Humboldt. The Civil War in the west sometimes involved Indian nations. In the Humboldt area, the Osage tribe sided with the Unionists, while the Cherokees supported the Confederacy. (Vol. VIII 1903-1904) "An (Unrecorded) Incident of the War, 1862" -- "In the summer of 1862, a detachment of the Fifth Kansas cavalry of less than 200 men accomplished one of the most perilous feats of the civil war, and of which little is known except by those now living who participated therein."Thus begins a tale by John Francis, a follower of John Brown, and a member of Company D, Fifth Kansas regiment. (Vol. VII 1901-1902). Bookseller Inventory # 000473

Item Description: University of Oklahoma Press, United States, 1997. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. 216 x 150 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. In A Texas Frontier: The Clear Fork Country and Fort Griffin, 1849-1887. Ty Cashion surveys the formative development of northwest Texas where the Clear Fork of the Brazos cuts a path between the timbered region and the treeless plains beyond. Despite the unfamiliar and often harsh environment, the first pioneers - mainly southern stock raisers - persisted through conflicts with Plains Indians, the Civil War, Reconstruction, outlawry, rapid settlement, and diversification to form a ranching-based social and economic way of life. The process turned a largely southern people into westerners. Others helped shape the history of the Clear Fork country as well. Notable among them were Anglo men and women - some of them earnest settlers, others unscrupulous opportunists - who followed the first pioneers; Indians of various tribes who claimed the land as their own or who were forcibly settled there by the white government; and African Americans, both former slaves and buffalo soldiers and their families, who remained on the land after their terms of enlistment expired. A dominant theme in Cashion s depiction of the Clear Fork country is that from its earliest days boom-and-bust cycles have characterized the region as a result of the land s fickle nature, the policies of various governments, and the business decisions of men as far away as the East Coast. An even more prominent theme is that a strain of violence touched almost every aspect of life. Soldiers and Indians, cowboys and buffalo hunters, vigilantes and outlaws provide a colorful backdrop for this history. Yet Cashion forsakes the romantic image of gunslingers and a casual acceptance of violence by portraying the more prosaic peopleand events in which a larger regional story unfolds.

Item Description: Texas A M University Press, United States, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 230 x 154 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In 1542 members of the thriving Caddo Indian culture came face to face with Luis de Moscoso, successor to Hernando de Soto as leader of a Spanish exploration party. That encounter marked a turning point for this centuries-old people, whose history from then on would be dominated by the interaction of the native confederacies with the empires of various European adventurers and settlers.Much has been written about the confrontations of Euro-Americans with Native Americans, but most of it has focused on the Anglo-Indian relations of the eastern part of the continent or on the final phases of the western wars. This thorough and engaging history is the first to focus intensively on the Caddos of the Texas-Louisiana border area. Primarily from the perspective of the Caddos themselves, it traces the development and effect of relations over the three hundred years from the first meeting with the Spaniards until the resettlement of the tribes on the Brazos Reserve in 1854.In an impressive work of scholarship and lucid writing, F. Todd Smith chronicles all three of the Caddo confederacies-Kadohadacho, Hasinai, and Natchitoches-as they consolidated into a single tribe to face the waves of soldiers, traders, and settlers from the empires of Spain, France, the United States, Mexico, and the Republic of Texas. It describes the delicate balance the Caddos struck with the various nations claiming the region and how that gradually evolved into a less beneficial relationship. Caught in the squeeze between Euro-American nations, the Caddos eventually sacrificed their independence and much of their culture to gain the benefits offered by the invaders. Falling victim to swindlers, they at last lost their lands and were moved to a reservation. This intriguing new view of a little-known aspect of history will fascinate those interested in the culture and fate of American Indians. Thorough in its research and comprehensive in scope, it offers valuable insight into the differing approaches of the various European and American nations to the native peoples and a compelling understanding of the futility of the efforts of even some of the most sophisticated tribes in coping successfully with the changes wrought.

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. A Gathering at Oak Creek, a novel, is a portrayal of four very different people; a depiction of how they come together and how they and their ancestors are and were molded by the land and by the times in which they live. The story, which begins over one hundred and fifty years before, takes place - mainly -in the area that will become Texas. Scot-Irish, Mexican, German, Tonkawa, Irish and Comanche all have ancestral parts in the saga while the roles of African-American, Apache, English and Kiowa are essential to the story. This is an adventure tale, a seminar on ranching and ecology, a love story, and a history lesson spiced with mystery, tragedy and comedy. The story is fiction but the people and events portrayed are modeled after real life. The Scot-Irish made the journey from grinding poverty in Scotland to poverty plus religious strife in Northern Ireland to a sometimes harsh but free and independent life in America. The German settlers moved to what was at first Tejas and later Texas as family units; where the Scot-Irish and Anglo-Saxons tended to chase the rainbow the Germans brought civilization and stability where ever they settled. The people of northern Mexico suffered terribly for many years from the actions of predatory Comanche and Apache; it was common for Mexican and Caucasian children - especially boys - to be adopted into the tribes and live out their lives as tribesmen. The Tonkawa people were treated particularly harsh by history; at various times, they were massacred by Apache, Comanche, white settlers - with whom they had long been friends and allies - and, when they were moved to Indian Territory, by consortiums of supposedly tame Indians. After the War Between the States, the disarming of the people of Texas by the Reconstructionist government did happen and Texans of all kinds suffered from Indian depredation because of it. The freed slaves of the 10th United States Cavalry with their campaigns against the Comanche and later against Victorio and his renegade Apaches gave lie to the belief, common at the time that black men could not fight. The area of Texas where Oak Creek Ranch is located was some of the last land in the United States to be opened to civilization; for many years Comancheria - the land of the Comanche - was cut off completely from the rest of the world. No one ventured into the area without the permission of the Comanche. This continued until the buffalo herds were exterminated and the Comanche and their Kiowa allies were starved into submission. Quanah Parker brought the last of the free Comanche in to the Fort Sill Reservation in 1875 and the Comanche wars were finally over. The end of Indian hostilities ushered in a new era of settlement across the area; first by free range cattlemen pushing in from all four directions and later by farmers and small ranchers. Mac and Windy - who are featured in the story - were among the last of the free living cowboys who played such an important role in the early day ranching industry. The ranching business underwent great change from its early days until the 1990 s; it became much more industrialized - it moved away from its roots in the land. Today, at least some ranchers are in the process of changing once again; raiding Comanche are no longer a threat but new challenges face the ranchers attempting to take their operations back to their biological foundations. The book attempts to give some insights into ranching - past and present - in America but at the very least, it is an enjoyable read that will leave you in a good mood. The author grew up in the area where the story occurs and spent his life as a working rancher. Mike Pinson, whose original art work graces the front cover, is another fully accredited cowboy with the broken bones to prove it. Aside from his art work and cattle operation, Mike is a saddle maker and leather artist. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781475196184

Todd Smith chronicles all three of the Caddo confederacies-Kadohadacho, Hasinai, and Natchitoches-as they consolidated into a single tribe to face the waves of soldiers, traders, and settlers from the empires of Spain, France, the United States, Mexico, and the Republic of Texas. It describes the delicate balance the Caddos struck with the various nations claiming the region and how that gradually evolved into a less beneficial relationship. Caught in the squeeze between Euro-American nations, the Caddos eventually sacrificed their independence and much of their culture to gain the benefits offered by the invaders. Falling victim to swindlers, they at last lost their lands and were moved to a reservation. This intriguing new view of a little-known aspect of history will fascinate those interested in the culture and fate of American Indians. Thorough in its research and comprehensive in scope, it offers valuable insight into the differing approaches of the various European and American nations to the native peoples and a compelling understanding of the futility of the efforts of even some of the most sophisticated tribes in coping successfully with the changes wrought.

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.A Gathering at Oak Creek, a novel, is a portrayal of four very different people; a depiction of how they come together and how they and their ancestors are and were molded by the land and by the times in which they live. The story, which begins over one hundred and fifty years before, takes place - mainly -in the area that will become Texas. Scot-Irish, Mexican, German, Tonkawa, Irish and Comanche all have ancestral parts in the saga while the roles of African-American, Apache, English and Kiowa are essential to the story. This is an adventure tale, a seminar on ranching and ecology, a love story, and a history lesson spiced with mystery, tragedy and comedy. The story is fiction but the people and events portrayed are modeled after real life. The Scot-Irish made the journey from grinding poverty in Scotland to poverty plus religious strife in Northern Ireland to a sometimes harsh but free and independent life in America. The German settlers moved to what was at first Tejas and later Texas as family units; where the Scot-Irish and Anglo-Saxons tended to chase the rainbow the Germans brought civilization and stability where ever they settled. The people of northern Mexico suffered terribly for many years from the actions of predatory Comanche and Apache; it was common for Mexican and Caucasian children - especially boys - to be adopted into the tribes and live out their lives as tribesmen. The Tonkawa people were treated particularly harsh by history; at various times, they were massacred by Apache, Comanche, white settlers - with whom they had long been friends and allies - and, when they were moved to Indian Territory, by consortiums of supposedly tame Indians. After the War Between the States, the disarming of the people of Texas by the Reconstructionist government did happen and Texans of all kinds suffered from Indian depredation because of it. The freed slaves of the 10th United States Cavalry with their campaigns against the Comanche and later against Victorio and his renegade Apaches gave lie to the belief, common at the time that black men could not fight. The area of Texas where Oak Creek Ranch is located was some of the last land in the United States to be opened to civilization; for many years Comancheria - the land of the Comanche - was cut off completely from the rest of the world. No one ventured into the area without the permission of the Comanche. This continued until the buffalo herds were exterminated and the Comanche and their Kiowa allies were starved into submission. Quanah Parker brought the last of the free Comanche in to the Fort Sill Reservation in 1875 and the Comanche wars were finally over. The end of Indian hostilities ushered in a new era of settlement across the area; first by free range cattlemen pushing in from all four directions and later by farmers and small ranchers. Mac and Windy - who are featured in the story - were among the last of the free living cowboys who played such an important role in the early day ranching industry. The ranching business underwent great change from its early days until the 1990 s; it became much more industrialized - it moved away from its roots in the land. Today, at least some ranchers are in the process of changing once again; raiding Comanche are no longer a threat but new challenges face the ranchers attempting to take their operations back to their biological foundations. The book attempts to give some insights into ranching - past and present - in America but at the very least, it is an enjoyable read that will leave you in a good mood. The author grew up in the area where the story occurs and spent his life as a working rancher. Mike Pinson, whose original art work graces the front cover, is another fully accredited cowboy with the broken bones to prove it. Aside from his art work and cattle operation, Mike is a saddle maker and leather artist. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781475196184
