Adventures in the American West

The Old West, often referred to as the Wild West, encompasses the period after the Civil War, the rest of the 1800s, and the early part of the 20th century up to 1912, when the last mainland states entered the Union.

American Indians and the Continental Army

The Declaration of Independence accused King George III of unleashing “merciless Indian Savages” against innocent men, women, and children. The image of ferocious warriors propelled into action by a tyrannical monarch fixed in memory and imagination the Indians‘ role in the American Revolution and justified their subsequent treatment. But, many Indian nations tried to stay out of the conflict, some sided with the Americans, and those who fought with the British were not the king’s pawns: they allied with the Crown as the best hope of protecting their homelands from the encroachments of American colonists and land speculators.

  1. Hello and thanks for the great stories and interesting histories of America. While chatting to my children as they traveled back to New Mexico Making the long journey from Fallon to Albuquerque. My son was having difficulty keeping alert soon after leaving Flagstaff, I asked him where he was, then started searching for the town of Houck. I stumbled onto this site and was immediately hooked. Not only did this help my road weary son stay awake long enough to switch drivers it continued to work as well for my younger daughter as I read several articles . thanks again
    I wanted to jot a quick note before I get hot coffee and biscuits cooked so everything is ready for my kids to come home.
