This bundled product contains everything you need for your unit on the Indian Wars – Battle of Little Bighorn and Wounded Knee. In the early 1800s, the United States government began forcing many Native American Tribes from their ancestral homeland to land set aside west of the Mississippi River. This product covers the Indian Wars and the Government’s efforts on moving Native Americans in the western states to government-controlled reservations.
