Native American / European-American interaction has been a topic of popular interest and concern and scholarly research in this country since Jamestown. The materials in this collection were selected from the Kenneth Hammer Collection at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater to make available to a wider audience rare and interesting nineteenth century views on Native Americans, the Indian wars of the late-nineteenth century, life in the West, and George Armstrong Custer. Among the items are the recollections of an Army wife who followed her husband throughout the West and scholarly investigations from the 1840's on Native American history and culture.
