Westward expansion confronts the Native American tribes...

NEW YORK WEEKLY TRIBUNE, June 5, 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 close to half a column with some fine content. It begins: "A Fort Kearney dispatch...says that the war on the Platte is fairly begun. Ranches are burned, stock stolen, and settlers murdered daily..." with much more.
Eight pages, very nice condition.
