  Topic Description
Posted by: mrhistory2 the Apaches and Navajos were warlike,fighting the Spanish,Mexicans,and Americans as well as other tribes. They fought many wars with the US,but their allies to the North,the Utes,also fought many wars,and fought Mormon settlers in Utah,the most notable war being the Black Hawk of 1865-72,which many people confuse with the earlier Black Hawk war of 1832,in which the Young Abraham Lincoln first saw military action. these wars and the Indians who fought them all need coverage soon.

Sorry, you have to segregate the Apache wars from the Navajo. The Navajo were the scourge of New Mexico for a couple of hundred years. The Apaches' various clans ranged over Arizona,New Mexico, and Texas. You'd need 2 or 3 titles on the Apaches alone, but the war against the Navajo, particularly during the Civil War, demands separate treatment. As for the Utes, their 1879 uprising was something of an anomaly. At the first battle of Adobe Walls, they provided many riders for Kit carson's side.

Check the upcoming titles, a book about the Southwest Indians is coming in april. The Black Hawk war is indeed a forgotten one, I'd love to know more about it. And a book about Adobe Walls would also be very welcome. There must be some way to cram all of this in one title!! Campaign: American Indian wars of the 1860s?

Wicked, the 1860s had probably more uprisings than any other decade. You had not only campaigns in existing wars, but the beginning of new ones (Sioux, Chircauhua Apache). One title would be hopelessly inadequate.
