Introduction to essay

Introduction to essay
Creator: Hunnius, Ado, 1842-1923
Date: 1910-1920
This item is a story written by Carl Julius Adolph "Ado" Hunnius. Hunnius states that he wrote the story after being requested to write down his recollections of and experiences that he had with the "Indians of the Plains." In 1867, Hunnius served under Major General Winfield Scott Hancock during his effort to pacify various Native American tribes on the plains. Hunnius indicates that attitudes toward the tribes varied quite a bit. In fact, Hunnius states that "in 1867 there was quite a difference of opinion as to the North American Indian."
