Spencer, Earl Charles:  The American Civil War in the Indian Territory
Book Number: 001348
Osprey Publishing Ltd Oxford, United Kingdom 2006 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall New book, 64 pages, ELI140. One of the most tragic theaters of Civil War conflict was the Indian Territory (modern Oklahoma), and the borderlands of Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and Texas. Both the Union and the Confederacy raised Native American units to contest this ground, and tribes were divided against one another and amongst themselves. Federal and Confederate cavalry also struck into the Territory from Kansas and Texas; and the irregular marauders who raided the area such as Kansas Red Legs and Quantrill's Raiders earned notoriety. This fascinating account of the groups which fought in the Territory is richly illustrated with rare early photos, and detailed color reconstructions covering Union forces: Organization, unforms, equipment & weapons of: 1st US Cavalry, 1st US Infantry, Jayhawkers (‘redles’ and ‘Pin Indians’), 3rd Wisconsin Cavalry, 2nd, 6th and 9th Kansas Cavalry, Union Indian Brigade (1st-3rd kansas Indian Home Guard), US colored Troops (1st and 2nd Kansas Colored Infantry): Confederate Forces: Uniforms, native dress, equipment & weapons of: confederate Indian Division (the Five Civilized Tribes, plus Caddo & Osage battalions), Texas units (1st Partisanrangers, Welch’s Cavalry, 3rd, 9th and 29th Cavalry), Quantrill’s and Anderson’s Raiders; The ‘neutral’ tribes: Osage, Caddo, Tonkwana, Wichita, Comanche Horses, saddlery, and wagons.
