… Native Peoples in the Fight for the West

"In The Three-Cornered War Megan Kate Nelson reveals the fascinating history of the Civil War in the American West. Exploring the connections among the Civil War, the Indian wars, and western expansion, Nelson reframes the era as one of national conflict--involving not just the North and South, but also the West.

Against the backdrop of this larger series of battles, Nelson introduces nine individuals: John R. Baylor, a Texas legislator who established the Confederate Territory of Arizona; Louisa Hawkins Canby, a Union Army wife who nursed Confederate soldiers back to health in Santa Fe; James Carleton, a professional soldier who engineered campaigns against Navajos and Apaches; Kit Carson, a famous frontiersman who led a regiment of volunteers against the Texans, Navajos, Kiowas, and Comanches; Juanita, a Navajo weaver who resisted Union campaigns against her people; Bill Davidson, a soldier who fought in all of the Confederacy's major battles in New Mexico; Alonzo Ickis, an Iowa-born gold miner who fought on the side of the Union; John Clark, a friend of Abraham Lincoln's who embraced the Republican vision for the West as New Mexico's surveyor-general; and Mangas Coloradas, a revered Chiricahua Apache chief who worked to expand Apache territory in Arizona…"

Yes, it's very good.

That's the Amazon Mexico site, so it's not in US dollars.

It's $22.17 USD from the US Amazon:

Anyone have any tips on figures for natives during this time period?

Pan Marek18 Sep 2020 3:33 p.m. PST

In the book, its Navajo and Apache. I don't know of any Navajo figures on the market. There's Apache, of course.
But most are armed with Winchesters and breech loading cavalry carbines.
In this period, they would have bows and/or various muskets.
Which means some modifying.
