    Brief Interpretive History of the Rogue River War
      US - Northwest
    The Rogue River War began in October, 1855, when a mob from the mining town of Jacksonville, in the Rogue River Valley in southwestern Oregon, killed at least twenty-eight Indian people who were camped near the Table Rock Reservation.

    David Cusick’s Sketches of Ancient History of the Six Nations (1828)
    Tuscarora US - Northeast
    This very early (if not the first) account of Native American history and myth, written and published in English by an Indian, is valuable on that score alone. David Cusick was born around 1780, probably on the Oneida reservation in upstate New York. He served in the War of 1812, during which his village was burned by the British. He was a physician and painter and student of Iroquois oral tradition. He published the first edition of Sketches of Ancient History of the Six Nations as a 28-page pamphlet at Lewiston, NY, in 1827. He re-issued it the following year with additional text and four of his own engravings, and that edition provides the text and illustrations reprinted here. Cusick is thought to have died around 1840.

    French and Indian War Page - 1755
      US - Northeast
    This site is dedicated to the French Soldiers who came to New France between 1755 and 1760 to fight in the French and Indian War. This conflict was fought, in the most part, in the Lake George, Lake Champlain region of New York, at Quebec City, and Montreal. While the Canadian Troops and the regiment of La Marine participated in this conflict, I have centered my research on the French Regulars in the regiments of Languedoc, La Reine, Guyenne, Bearn, Royal Roussillon, La Sarre, and Berry. The regiments of Bourgone and Artois are also covered in small details.

    The Raynesford Papers: Notes- The Smoky Hill River & Fremont's Indian Village
      US - Central
    From prehistoric times, the watershed of this nearly 600 mile long river that the Indians considered extended from its source in Colorado to where it emptied in the Missouri River contained the finest country--nearly 58,000 square miles of it--in all the great plains east of the Rocky Mountains, and it was a main source of supply for all tribes of Plains Indians, all of which made regular trips into this hunting paradise for their annual needs. And though every tribe claimed it as their own, none could make good their claim, and as a consequence many fierce battles were fought within its confines between the various tribes of Indians long before, as well as after, the white man appeared on the scene.
    Trail of Tears
