Story of the Indian Territory by Geo. E Foster ( )
1 edition published in 1889 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This manuscript, entitled "The Story of the Indian Territory," was written by Foster some time after 1889. It is divided into thirteen chapters which include detailed descriptons of the movements of the North American Indians from 1492 to 1889, with particular emphasis on the Osages, Cherokees, Choctaws, Chickesaws, Creeks, Seminoles, and Ketoowahs. Foster is critical of white settlers who pushed the Indians further and further West until their settlements were "but the remainder of a minuend from which constant subtractions" were made. The narrative is told through dialogue between two supposed descendants of William Penn, who traveled West from the Delaware River in order to trace Indian movements and sufferings. Through them Foster catalogs government management of Indian affairs, related anecdotes of Indian life, and describes Indian living conditions, (including opportunities for education) in great detail. Chapter 11 includes a typed list of major Civil War battles involving Indians. At the end of Chapter 13 the following is included: a chronological table of descriptions of major events in Indian life from 1492 to 1889; a brief bibliography of books on the history of the Indians; the Constitution of the Indian Territory (1875), and the Indian Declaration of Rights. Foster also drew all illustrations in this manuscript
