American Military on the Frontier

A pdf book on the U.S. military and the Wild West. It is terribly convenient in these times to forget the positive work that was done by the Army and Navy during America’s westward expansion. We tend to focus on the negative, and in so doing forget that the surveyors, explorers, scouts, and lawkeepers that enabled the frontier wore Army blue and Navy white.

This book, the proceedings of a symposium at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, seeks to re-examine the military’s role in the opening of the West.
