Osprey Elite 140 : The American Civil War in the Indian Territory

One of the most tragic theatres of Civil War conflict was the Indian Territory (modern Oklahoma), and the borderlands of Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and Texas. Both the Union and the Confederacy raised Native American units to contest this ground, and tribes were divided against one another and amongst themselves. Federal and Confederate cavalry also struck into the Territory from Kansas and Texas, and the irregular marauders who raided the area such as the Kansas Red Legs and Quantrill's Raiders earned notoriety. This account of the groups which fought in the Territory is richly illustrated with rare early photos, and detailed colour reconstructions. Text by John D. Spencer with illustrations by Adam Hook.
