Descripción

Excellent condition, tight and bright. Inscribed and signed by the author. Details the Fourth Cavalry charge out of Fort Dodge in pursuit of Cheyenne that left the reservation headed for the Dakotas. The forces met at Battle Canyon on the far western edge of the Kansas border. It was the final clash between Indians and the Cavalry in Kansas. Following the Battle of the Little Bighorn attempts by the U.S. Army to capture the Cheyenne intensified. A group of 972 Cheyenne were escorted to Indian Territory in Oklahoma in 1877. The government intended to re-unite both the Northern and Southern Cheyenne into one nation. There the conditions were dire; the Northern Cheyenne were not used to the climate and soon many became ill with malaria. In addition, the food rations were insufficient and of poor quality. In 1878, the two principal Chiefs, Little Wolf and Morning Star (often referred to by his Sioux name Dull Knife) pressed for the release of the Cheyenne so they could travel back north. That same year a group of 353 Cheyenne left Indian Territory to travel back north. This group was led by Chiefs Little Wolf and Morning Star. The Army and other civilian volunteers were in hot pursuit of the Cheyenne as they traveled north. It is estimated that a total of 13,000 Army soldiers and volunteers were sent to pursue the Cheyenne over the whole course of their journey north. There were several skirmishes that occurred, and the two head chiefs were unable to keep some of their young warriors from attacking small white settlements along the way.
