Images Of The Past - The Frontier Army

In The Moment ... November 25, 2019 Show 707 Hour 2

During today's Images of the Past, Eli Paul, author of, “The Frontier Army: Episodes from Dakota and the West,” joined us to discuss his book.

The book contains seven essays about the frontier Army in the Northern Plains, including the Black Hills, between 1854 and 1890. The essays show that there is much more to the story of the frontier Army than George Custer and the Little Bighorn,” said foundation president Catherine Forsch. The foundation is the nonprofit fundraising partner of the South Dakota State Historical Society.

“The Frontier Army” was recently published by the South Dakota Historical Society Press. It is sold in the Heritage Stores at the Cultural Heritage Center and the Capitol.
