Forced by powers greater than their own, Native Americans were ruthlessly rounded up and held in concentration camps by the U.S. army where many died waiting to be relocated to the west. Their long difficult journey would be no less merciful in 1839 when the Cherokees were marched to their new homelands in the Indian Nations (Oklahoma), and more than 4,000 perished along the way on what became known as the "Trail of Tears." Other Indian tribes would have similar experiences. Their sorrowful ordeal would not end, however, with the loss of their native firesides and hunting grounds. Indi... View more info

On a cold night in late April 1865, on the mighty Mississippi River just north of Memphis, Tennessee, scores of unsuspecting souls suddenly found themselves desperately struggling for their lives after the boilers exploded on the riverboat steamer Sultana. The majority of the passengers had served their nation on Civil War battlefields and had spent time in the prison camps at Andersonville and Cahaba (Castle Morgan), and, now freed, were on their way home. Although more lives were lost in this incident than would be lost on the Titanic in 1912, these homeward bound veterans of war have been n... View more info

With a potent combination of rapid-firing Spencer rifles, aggressive and determined leadership, and unlimited confidence in themselves, the soldiers of Col. John T. Wilder's mounted Lightning Brigade -- so christened during the summer of 1863 -- solidified a reputation in the savage battle of Chickamauga as one of the Union Army's hardest fighting and most effective combat organizations. His Indiana and Illinois regiments, along with Capt.

In less than a month, General William T. Sherman's blueclad columns had marched and fought to within 30 miles of the spires of Atlanta, Ga. But at rugged Kennesaw Mountain northwest of the city in June 1864, their progress was stymied by the weather, terrain and tenacious resistance of the veteran Army of Tennessee led by General Joseph E. Johnston. "The days in front of Kennesaw," wrote a Confederate officer, "were the longest in the year. The firing began as soon as it was light enough for the gunners to see and all day long our line was searched by shot and shell. It will... View more info
