During the time when American Indians were desperately trying to hold onto their land in the Midwest, another group of Indians was fighting a very different battle. This is the amazing true story of Anishinaabe Indians that chose to join as soldiers in Company K, a Member of the Union Army of the American Civil War. This they did in hopes of saving their people by believing in many promises given by the US Government. Thousands of Indians participated, and so many died terrible deaths. However, there contribution to the war was commendable, and yet largely unrecognized. This book will push the reader into learning more about this topic, and it may even push them to travel to one or more of the locations discussed. There are some interesting pictures throughout the book, as well as a wealth of extra information at the very end.This is a must read story!
