"[A] fine volume. The author makes his case with clear prose, impressive research, and thoughtful analysis that illuminates the historical process at its best. This excellent volume should be acquired by Illinoisans interested in the Lincoln Presidency and should be required by professors as supplemental reading for college students." -- Raymond E. Hauser, Journal of Illinois History "Undoubtedly the best book published on Indian affairs in the years of Lincoln's presidency." -- Henry E. Fritz, American Historical Review "[Nichols] does a superb job of probing the multiple factors and the complex interrelationship of events that produced Lincoln's Indian policy during the Civil War." -- American Indian Quarterly "Provocative and original... Nichols has given us a valuable study of a wretched side of the Lincoln era, one that specialists and generalists alike can no longer ignore." -- Stephen B. Oates, Journal of American HistoryFrom the Publisher:
"Now available for the first time in paperback, "Lincoln and the Indians" remains the only thorough treatment of a much-neglected aspect of Lincoln's presidency. Placing Indian affairs in the broad context of Civil War politics and the settling of the West, David A. Nichols covers the Sioux War of 1862 in Minnesota, the forced removal of the Navahos from their homeland to the deadly concentration camp at Bosque Redondo, and the massacre of Cheyennes by volunteer troops at Sand Creek. He also examines Lincoln's inept handling of the Five Civilized Tribes in Indian Territory and the corrupt "Indian System" of government aid that mainly benefitted ambitious whites."
