The First Sioux War was a vitally important conflict that helped define Lakota Sioux / white relations; created a closer national unity among the Sioux; and allowed the United States Army to develop new military tactics, which would eventually be used to defeat the Plains Indians. This book analyzes this conflict and its influence on future Sioux leaders like Crazy Horse, Spotted Tail, and Sitting Bull.
