Rare Document / Indians

For a limited period of time this document will be available on the server at the URL indicated. The document is a "recovered" version of a document describing survey work conducted by the U. S. Army in an effort to get a summation on flora, fauna, and minerals in the South West in the year 1869.

Of particular interest is the commentary on the Native American Indians sprinkled within the document. The invasion of Europeans into the North American Continent is well described but utterly unmentioned by name in the Engineering Report; that is, the document is a window into the mindset of the Europeans in the aftermath of the abject slaughter of the Indians however the invasion and slaughter itself is never mentioned or described anywhere within the document.
