In a groundbreaking promise to include Native stories in the 150th anniversary commemoration of America’s Civil War, the National Park Service partnered with AIANTA, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Bureau of Indian Education and Eastern National to produce a cultural heritage interpretive handbook entitled, American Indians and the Civil War. The book focuses on illustrative Civil War and post-Civil War experiences of Native people in various regions of America. The authors are respected Native and non-Native history scholars.
