Four hour programme documenting the Indian Wars.
The year 1540 was a crucial turning point in American history. The Great Indian Wars were incited by Francisco Vazquez de Coronado when his expedition to the Great Plains launched the inevitable 350 year struggle between the white man and the American Indians. From that point forward, the series of battles between the United States and the Native American Indians began where blood was shed and ultimately tens of thousands of lives were lost on both sides. The Battle of Tippecanoe, the Battle of Horseshoe Bend, all three Seminole Wars and the Battle of Little Big Horn were some of the most important conflicts that led up to the last massacre, the Battle of Wounded Knee, where America s landscape would be forever changed. This 3 DVD Set is filled with insightful bonus features including a comprehensive gallery of rare and never-before-seen photographs and maps, a unique interactive timeline highlighting pivotal events and biographies on notable Cavalry Officers and Indian Chiefs including Tecumseh, Colonel Custer, Black Kettle, Wild Bill Hickock, Crazy Horse, Kit Carson, Geronimo, Sitting Bull and many more! This is a unique and graphic examination of the 350 year struggle of the indigenous native American Indians.
