Montana's era of ''Indian Wars'' consisted of nearly a century of skirmishes, battles, and large-scale wars between the U.S. military and native nations, including Blackfeet, Sioux, Northern Cheyennes, Arapahos, Gros Ventres, and Nez Perces -- and the army's Crow and Shoshone allies. These battlegrounds remain today, a testament to the clash of cultures that defined the region in the nineteenth century.  Author Barbara Fifer takes readers on a historic journey to the sites of Montana's most fascinating and storied battles, from Two Medicine Creek to the Little Bighorn and on to the Sweetgrass Hills, revealing engaging tales -- from fighters and witnesses on both sides. Montana Battlefields, 1806-1877:  Native Americans and the U.S. Army at War includes:





    • the stories behind 16 battles in Montana,








    • overview map of the present-day sites, and








    • 16 battlefield maps.
