Lincoln and the Indians: Civil War Policy and Politics

Lincoln and the Indians: Civil War Policy and Politics

David A. Nichols


 “Lincoln and the Indians has stood the try of time and offers this iteration of readers a necessary interpretation of the U.S. government’s Indian policies—and sometimes the inability thereof—during the Civil War era. delivering a severe standpoint on Lincoln’s role, Nichols units forth an extremely incisive research of the trial of individuals within the Dakota warfare of 1862 in Minnesota and Lincoln’s position in sparing the lives of such a lot of these who have been convicted.” 
—James M. McPherson, Pulitzer P rize–winning writer of Battle Cry of Freedom

“For the Dakota humans, the Indian procedure began with the Doctrine of Discovery and persisted  through Abraham Lincoln’s presidency and past. the U.S. used to be certain to protect the rights of Indian events. yet in spite of everything, the accountable have been glorified and the legislation for humanity disgraced. This e-book tells that tale, and it's going to be required analyzing in any respect academic institutions.” 
—Sheldon Wolfchild, self reliant filmmaker, artist, and actor

“Undoubtedly the simplest booklet released on Indian affairs within the years of Lincoln’s presidency.” 
American old Review
