Presented by Leo E. Oliva

During the Civil War, events at both ends of the Santa Fe Trail contributed to the war's outcome while another war in the middle--the Plains Indian Wars--grew in intensity and eventually resulted in removal of the Plains tribes from Kansas. This presentation introduces key conflicts along the Santa Fe Trail, including significant but largely forgotten battles in New Mexico and the period of accelerated conflict that ended with the destruction of Plains tribes as they had existed for over a century.
