Publisher's Summary

Much has been written of the civil war that raged across the eastern seaboard, but much less is known of the conflict and turmoil that arose during these years throughout many more western states.

Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, and Wyoming all suffered great depredations and saw much bloodshed through the years of the civil wars as army regiments clashed with Native American tribes.

Eugene F. Ware, captain of “F” company, Seventh Iowa Cavalry, fought within this area of conflict and provides vivid insight into battles and campaigns that tore through the Midwest.

This book is essential listening for anyone interested in finding out more about some of the less well-known areas of conflict during the Civil War period, as well as the westward expansion of the United States.

Eugene F. Ware was born in 1841. His family moved to Burlington, Iowa, when he was a young boy. He enlisted in an Iowa regiment at the beginning of the Civil War. He entered the regiment a private, and at the end of his service in 1867, was a captain. He worked for many years as a lawyer. His book The Indian War of 1864 was first published in 1911, which was also the year in which he passed away.
