Tonight on Extension 720: In the years after the Civil War, the United States turned its attentions to westward expansion. Though politicians had touted the idea of “manifest destiny” since the 1840s and though conflicts with the Mohicans, Algonquins and others had been a feature of the Revolutionary War era, it wasn’t the 1870s and 1880s that the United States Army turned its full attention to securing the Great Plains for settlers. Tonight, we explore this especially dark chapter in American history with JOSEPH M. MARSHALL III, an acclaimed Lakota writer, storyteller and historian, whose latest book is The Journey of Crazy Horse: A Lakota History. Our second guest is BRIAN HOSMER, professor of history at the University of Illinois at Chicago and director of the D'Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian History at the Newberry Library.
