Westward expansion confronts the Native American tribes...
Item # 675658
June 12, 1867
NEW YORK WEEKLY TRIBUNE, June 12, 1867 The years following the Civil War were years of expansion west, causing the inevitable conflict with the Native American tribes. Such reports were not uncommon in period newspapers. This is one such issue.
The front page has: "The Indian War" which takes half a column with some fine content.
Page 7 has: "Colorado" "Mining In Colorado--Speculation and Swindling--Prospects--Scenery of the Snowy Range" which is a great, travelogueesque report from Colorado some 9 years before it would become a state.
Eight pages, very nice condition.
