Publisher's Summary

Much has been written of the civil war that raged across the eastern seaboard, but much less is known of the conflict and turmoil that arose during these years throughout many more western states.

Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, and Wyoming all suffered great depredations and saw much bloodshed through the years of the civil wars as army regiments clashed with Native American tribes.

Eugene F. Ware, captain of “F” company, Seventh Iowa Cavalry, fought within this area of conflict and provides vivid insight into battles and campaigns that tore through the Midwest.

This book is essential listening for anyone interested in finding out more about some of the less well-known areas of conflict during the Civil War period, as well as the westward expansion of the United States.

Eugene F. Ware was born in 1841. His family moved to Burlington, Iowa, when he was a young boy. He enlisted in an Iowa regiment at the beginning of the Civil War. He entered the regiment a private, and at the end of his service in 1867, was a captain. He worked for many years as a lawyer. His book The Indian War of 1864 was first published in 1911, which was also the year in which he passed away.

Great Story-First Person Read

I thoughly enjoyed listening to this book as narrated in the first person.
However, I think Audible needs to do a much better job screening their narrators. There is a real problem with the narrators NOT being able to pronounce names, places and other words correctly. This narrator (through the whole book) pronounced “Platte River” as the “Plate River.” This is the second book in a row where the narrator completely slaughtered words. I cringed every time the narrator said the “Plate River.” In 80 years of living in the western U.S., I have never heard this pronunciation. The story was great.
