THE HISTORY OF THE BORDER WARS



Original 1874 First Edition of “History of the Border Wars of Two Centuries Embracing a Narrative of the Wars with the Indians from 1750 to 1874” by Charles Richard Tuttle :: Published by C.A. Wall & Company: Chicago :: Measures 6 1/2 x 9" :: Complete with 608 Pages.

GOOD CONDITION: A tightly bound volume, firm hinges, generally clean pages with some moderate foxing throughout, cover wear as shown, lacking title page, otherwise complete with all pages and illustrations; overall a good solid condition example of this antique work on the Indians.


This Volume is a history of the Border Wars of the United States from the fall of Canada, in 1759, to and including the Indian troubles in the far West in 1874. The narrative opens with a brief history of the Indian Nations east of the Mississippi, and a short description of the outposts of both the English and French colonies as they appeared at the close of the French war. Then follows, in considerable detail, an account of the Pontiac War, which in its desolating march spread the horror of murder and massacre from the Carolinas to the most northern lake fort From this desperate struggle the reader is conducted through the tempests of Border Warfare in its famous march across the Continent, from the Alleghenies and the lakes to the dangerous lava-cave ambuscades of the Modocs, in Arizona, and the wilds of the Pacific slope. At the proper point the narrative is interrupted to give place to a brief history of the Indian tribes, and a description of the outposts of civilization west of the Mississippi.

In the course of the history the reader is presented with interesting and authentic sketches of the lives of Chiefs Pontiac, Brant, Tecumseh, Black Hawk, Captain Jack, and the great Indian warriors who have figured conspicuously in Border Warfare in North America; the various treaties that have been made and broken, the boundary lines that have been agreed upon and invaded; in short, all the events that have, for the time, either prevented or promoted these wars, are fully and truthfully represented, so that the reader, after carefully perusing this Volume, will, in the absence of any opinion expressed by the author, be able to judge intelligently for himself of the merits of the treatment which the native tribes have received at the hands of the United States government.

The History of the Border Wars has been compiled and written from the most reliable sources, and, it is confidently believed, will be found complete, authentic and interesting. Throughout are numerous illustrations.
