[Washington]. 1928. ,46pp. Original printed wrappers. Wrappers lightly worn. Near fine. Chartered in 1896 and still active today, the Order of Indian Wars of the United States was founded to "perpetuate the memories of the services rendered by the military forces of the United States in their conflicts and wars against hostile Indians within the territory or jurisdiction of the United States, and to collect and secure for publication historical data relating to the instances of heroic service and personal devotion by which Indian warfare has been illustrated" (from their constitution). The proceedings of their annual meetings give the names of the members, mark the passing of the recently deceased, and record the official business conducted, but they are most interesting for printing recollections of nineteenth-century Indian warfare, often being the only publication of these memoirs. This record of the 1928 meeting and dinner includes the memoirs of Gen. William H. Bisbee, his service at Fort Kearny, meetings with the Sioux at Fort Laramie, and his views on the Fetterman massacre, during which Bisbee's forces were in close proximity. Also included is S.W. Fountain's account of his fights with the Apache in December, 1885, and "The Experience of Major Mauck in Disarming a Band of Cheyennes on the North Fork of the Canadian River in 1878." Important firsthand reports of Indian fighting on the frontier. N° de ref. de la librería 1570
