Dee Brown's authoritative history of Fort Phil Kearney and the notorious Fetterman MassacreThis dark, unflinching, and fascinating book is Dee Brown's riveting account of events leading up to the Battle of the Hundred Slain--the devastating 1866 conflict that pitted Lakota, Arapaho, and Northern Cheyenne warriors, including Oglala chief Red Cloud, against the United States cavalry under the command of Captain William Fetterman. Providing a vivid backdrop to the battle, Brown offers a portrait of Wyoming's Ft. Phil Kearney and the remarkable men who built and defended it. Based on a wealth of historical sources and sparked by Brown's narrative genius, The Fetterman Massacre is an essential look at one of the frontier's defining conflicts. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dee Brown including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
