American Indian Wars In-Depth

From the time that European settlers first arrived in North America, conflict between them and the native people was inevitable. The tensions between their different cultures and different races only increased as more settlers arrived, had families and pushed ever westward, denuding forests, tilling prairies, killing game, and occupying lands that were the homes of Cherokee, Sioux, Apache and other tribes.

Competition for control of territory and its resources has existed between all races on every inhabited continent, but the rapidity with which White civilization gobbled up the American frontier was unprecedented. The resulting wars between newcomers and indigenous peoples gave rise to heroes and heroines, myths and legends on both sides.

HistoryNet presents this resource page on the American Indian Wars to help readers sort out fact from fiction.

Other resources can be found at the History.com site.
