A Short Survey Of The U. S. And Apache In The Southwest, 1846-1886 by Bertha Blount covers the high points of the bloody relations between U. S. Government policy and the Apache Indians in the 19th-Century.Blount shows the many treacherous moves by the U. S in dealing with the Apache, from the time the territory was acquired from Mexico at the conclusion of the Mexican-American War, to the final suppression of Apache resistance with the capture of Geronimo in 1885.Her account of U. S.-Apache relations is both sad and riveting. She shows how, in the beginning, the Apache were loyal allies of the U. S. against the common Mexican enemy, whom the Apache had no cause to love. The Mexican Government, if anything, had been as treacherous as any example in history of white-red dealings. The Apache soon discovered than their pact of mutual support with the U. S. was a pact with the devil.A must read for those interested in U. S.-Apache historical relations as well as those seeking an understanding of U. S. Government policy toward the Indians of the Southwest in the period 1845-1890.A short E-Book of approximately 7,700 words or approximately 25+ pages at 300 words per page.NOTE: This book has been scanned then OCR (Optical Character Recognition) has been applied to turn the scanned page images back into editable text.
