The Navajo long walk Bosque Redondo is another of the events of atrocity during the Civil War . Little Crow's Uprising and the hanging of the chiefs after is part of the Civil War . The events would not have happened as they did with out the War going on .I concur on both points.
Just my opinion from what I have read.
Have you read "The Blue, The Grey, and The Red-Indian Campaigns of the Civil War" by Thom Hatch? It's truly sad that so much of what was done to the Indians in the name of westward expansion and progress has been swept under the carpet. Truly some of the darkest deeds of our nation.
