Records of the Indian Wars

You will find various resources for the Indian Wars on this page; some are subscription sites, others are free. The Indian Wars consisted of a long series of, generally unrelated, campaigns lasting for more than 100 years. Due to the long period of time and various policies of the numerous presidential administrations, no general design can be placed overall. However, it is generally recognized that the major policy issues were eventually designed to "civilize" the Native American population, place them under the authority of the Army, and move them to reservations where they could be placed under "government" supervision.

Many of these sources will provide specific records, others only index information. We specialize in United States Military Records and can assist you in obtaining the proper records, including Military Service Records and Pension Records. Request a FREE ESTIMATE today!

Don't forget that individual States and some counties also maintain records of veterans of various wars and conflicts. Click to go to the State Resource page.
