This book covers 51 fort sites in Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, and Montana. Over 100 photographs and drawings illustrate life at the forts. It provides directions, visitor information, and nearby points of interest for every site. As the first official symbols of U.S. government presence on the Western frontier, the forts of the Northern Plains were both centres of commerce and sources of conflict. The integral role 51 of those forts played during decades of warfare with the Plains Indians tribes - and the posts' fates after those wars ended - is recounted in this informative guidebook. Included are histories, up-to-date descriptions of what remains today, and directions and visitor information for each post.
