Fort Laramie and the Great Sioux War. 1876: The year of General George Crook's Big Horn; the Black Hills gold rush; and chaos at the Red Cloud and Spotted Tail Indian agencies.

Click to EnlargeFort Laramie and the Great Sioux War. Founded in 1834 on the high plains of present-day eastern Wyoming. Fort Laramie evolved into an organizational hub and chief supply center for the U.S. Army in its campaigns against the Sioux and Cheyenne Indians. Fort Laramie and the Great Sioux War focuses on a crucial year in the history of the fort, 1876. That was the year of General George Crook's Big Horn; the Black Hills gold rush; and chaos at the Red Cloud and Spotted Tail Indian agencies.

Paul Hedren draws upon official army records, diaries, and journals to illuminate a fort-based history of the Great Sioux War, and for this edition he also provides a new preface.

"Fort Laramie's role in the Great Sioux War has been underestimated far too long . . .. All of the major battles and many of the minor skirmishes fall into place because of Hedren's systematic approach and his thorough use of officials records." - Montana: The Magazine of Western History "Readers get a distinct feel for how the events of 1876 affected the lives of those who lived and worked a Fort Laramie." - American Indian Quarterly
