Excerpt from The Indian Wars of the United States: From the First Settlement at Jamestown, in 1607, to the Close of the Great Uprising of 1890-91; With Numerous Illustrative Incidents
The history of the Indian wars of the United States is a history of one continuous series of... blunders, frauds, oppression, injustice, and crime that is a reproach to our nation. Here and there, in the record, a bright page shines out all the more vividly because of its contrast with the surrounding darkness. None can estimate the amount of property destroyed, the num ber of lives sacrificed, and the injury done to civilization and progress by our dealings with the Indians.
