Red River War of 1874-1875

Battles Lost, Battles Found: The Red River War Battle Sites Project. During the 1870s, an epic struggle for control of the Southern Plains pitted Native Americans against the U.S. Army. For almost two centuries, Europeans and Euro Americans had interacted with bands of Comanche, Kiowa, Southern Cheyenne, and Arapaho. Some relations were mutually beneficial, as those involving trade. But violent conflicts intensified as more and more whites moved westward into native territory in the early 1800s.
