Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Of all the U.S. Army posts in the West, none witnessed more history than Fort Laramie, positioned where the northern Great Plains join the Rocky Mountains. From its beginnings as a trading post in 1834 to its abandonment by the army in 1890, it was involved in the buffalo hide trade, overland migrations, Indian wars and treaties, the Utah War, Confederate maneuvering, and the coming of the telegraph and first transcontinental railroad. Douglas C. McChristian has written the first complete history of Fort Laramie, chronicling every critical stage in its existence, including its addition to the National Park System. He draws on an extraordinary array of archival materials-including those at Fort Laramie National Historic Site-to present new data about the fort and new interpretations of historical events. Emphasizing the fort s military history, McChristian documents the army s vital role in ending challenges posed by American Indians to U.S. occupation and settlement of the region, and he expands on the fort s interactions with the many Native peoples of the Central Plains and Rocky Mountains. He provides a particularly lucid description of the infamous Grattan fight of 1854, which initiated a generation of strife between Indians and U.S. soldiers, and he recounts the 1851 Horse Creek and 1868 Fort Laramie treaties. Meticulously researched and gracefully told, this is a long-overdue military history of one of the American West s most venerable historic places. N° de réf. du libraire AAC9780870623608

A propos du livre :

Synopsis : Of all the U.S. Army posts in the West, none witnessed more history than Fort Laramie, positioned where the northern Great Plains join the Rocky Mountains. From its beginnings as a trading post in 1834 to its abandonment by the army in 1890, it was involved in the buffalo hide trade, overland migrations, Indian wars and treaties, the Utah War, Confederate maneuvering, and the coming of the telegraph and first transcontinental railroad.

Douglas C. McChristian has written the first complete history of Fort Laramie, chronicling every critical stage in its existence, including its addition to the National Park System. He draws on an extraordinary array of archival materials–including those at Fort Laramie National Historic Site–to present new data about the fort and new interpretations of historical events.

Emphasizing the fort's military history, McChristian documents the army's vital role in ending challenges posed by American Indians to U.S. occupation and settlement of the region, and he expands on the fort's interactions with the many Native peoples of the Central Plains and Rocky Mountains. He provides a particularly lucid description of the infamous Grattan fight of 1854, which initiated a generation of strife between Indians and U.S. soldiers, and he recounts the 1851 Horse Creek and 1868 Fort Laramie treaties.

Meticulously researched and gracefully told, this is a long-overdue military history of one of the American West's most venerable historic places.

From the Publisher: Douglas C. McChristian is retired as Research Historian for the National Park Service (NPS) in its Santa Fe regional office. A former NPS Field Historian at Fort Laramie and other national historic sites, he is author of Fort Bowie, Arizona: Combat Post of the Southwest, 1858-1894 and the two-volume Uniforms, Arms, and Equipment: The U.S. Army on the Western Frontier, 1880-1892.

Paul L. Hedren is author of many articles and books on western frontier military history, including Fort Laramie and the Great Sioux War.

"Doug McChristian's Fort Laramie: Military Bastion of the High Plains is a meticulously researched, extensively documented, and wonderfully written account of the fortss history. Although other books have preceded this one, McChristian's new book is destined to be acclaimed as Fort Laramie's definitive history, the standard against which all other books about the fort are measured. . . .
