"Indian War and Civil War on the Western Frontier: The Indian War Of 1864 And The Lyon Campaign in Missouri in 1861" (2 Volumes In 1) by Eugene Ware, a first hand eyewitness account of the Indian War and the 1st Civil War campaign on the Western Frontier.

Eugene Ware (1841-1911) was a soldier, journalist, politician, historian, lawyer, poet, and pioneer in Iowa and Kansas. He enlisted in April 1861, in the, First Iowa Volunteer Infantry. Subsequently he re-enlisted in the Fourth Iowa Cavalry & was mustered out as captain, in June 1866.

Much of his 5 years in the military was spent in Sioux country, fighting in Indian Wars, during which Ware was badly wounded while on duty.

Volume 1 is his exciting eyewitness account of his duty during the Indian Wars: "The Indian War of 1864," in which he portrays the harrowing life of the US cavalry on the frontier during the American Civil War. The Indians used the strife, with the encouragement of the Confederacy, to try to stop white settlement on their ancestral hunting grounds. At this time, the Indians could still hold their own militarily since the repeating rifle, which gave the decisive edge to the white man, would not become common until about 1870 & military supply was confined to ox-drawn wagons; as the Transcontinental Railroad would no be completed until 1869. His account of this struggle, the Indian way of life, & the overwhelming Western emigrant flow illustrates the impeding doom of the various Plains Indian cultures, that would occur in the 1870s.

In Volume 2: "The Lyon Campaign In Missouri In 1861," Ware gives the history of the First Iowa Infantry, a three month regiment raised at the call of President Lincoln to put down the rebellion in Missouri, a border slave state, which controlled important points on the Mississippi River like St Louis with its large arsenal.

Quick action by General Nathaniel Lyon kept its pro-South government from seizing Missouri's important cities, but the new Confederate States government sent troops under Generals McCullough & Price to assist pro-slavery local Missouri forces. Lyon mounted the campaign described in Ware's book, which culminated with the battle at Wilson Creek to try & stop the Confederates. Lyon was killed in the battle & the Confederate forces held the field, but were so weakened & disorganized that they were unable to follow up the victory.
