Inexperienced Union and Confederate soldiers and civilians alike were forced to contend with Native Americans during the Civil War. In fact, Hatch argues, more died taming the West during this four-year period than in any other. The author seeks to dispel the notion that the Indians and settlers fought less during this period because of the struggles in the East. He also treats the skirmishes and battles of these years as resulting in the better-known conflicts that erupted in the West over the latter third of the 19th century.
