Jefferson Davis in Blue: The Life of Sherman's Relentless Warrior

Written by Nathaniel Cheairs Hughes, Jr.
Alaskana

This book features a little piece of overlooked history about the man in charge of Alaska during the US Naval Occupancy, prior to Territorial Years: Major Jefferson Davis. It was under Davis' command that many southeast Native villages, including Kake, were bombed. One chapter is devoted to Davis' reign in Alaska, while other chapters account the US Army's campaigns during the American Indian Wars. Includes a great source list for further exploration of Alaska history.
