Item Description
"Well written and researched, it offers a handy, carefully organized summary of many important military sites in the West." --Barton H. Barbour, Great Plains Quarterly

"Hats off to Jeff Barnes for providing present and future enthusiasts with a useful guide to old fort sites in our region and state." --Thomas R. Buecker, Nebraska History

"This is a useful, important and fun work." --Mark Sundlov, North Dakota History

  • 51 fort sites in Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, and Montana
  • More than 100 photographs and drawings illustrate life at the forts
  • Directions, visitor information, and nearby points of interest for every site

    As the first official symbols of U. S. government presence on the Western frontier, the forts of the Northern Plains were both centers of commerce and sources of conflict. The integral role 51 of those forts played during decades of warfare with the Plains Indians tribes--and the posts' fates after those wars ended--is recounted in this informative guidebook. Included are histories, up-to-date descriptions of what remains today, and directions and visitor information for each post.
