      Capt. McCracken, Sir!

      Your question made me curious, too, so I looked around a little .. I found the following review on the Western History Quarterly Review site.  Might be worth looking into!

      ..Tom Gilbert

       

      Eyewitnesses to the Indian Wars, 1865—1890. Volume One: The Struggle for Apacheria. Edited by Peter Cozzens. (Mechanicsburg, PA: Stackpole Books, 2001. xxxiv + 683 pp. Illustrations, maps, notes, index. $49.95.)

           Historians researching the Indian Wars are not as fortunate as Civil War specialists are in that the latter are blessed with a wide range of available published source compilations such as the Official Records of the War of the Rebellion (Washington, DC, 1880—1901) and Battles and Leaders (New York, 1887—1888). Thanks to Peter Cozzens, research into the Apache Wars, and eventually other Native-American conflicts, has been made a bit easier. Eyewitnesses to the Indian Wars is the first of a projected five-volume compilation of first-person accounts amassed in the fashion of Battles and Leaders.

           While its Civil War protégé consists of articles reprinted from one source, Century Magazine, this volume of Eyewitnesses to the Indian Wars is an assembled collection of rarely seen narratives drawn from a wide variety of publications. The editor has gathered together letters, articles, reports, and manuscripts that tell the words of army officers, scouts, Native Americans, and women offering their perspective on the tenuous relationship between the Americans and the Apaches. It was a continuous conflict that began to heat up right after the Civil War and that ended during the decade before the turn of the nineteenth century with the surrender of Geronimo

        "Eyewitnesses to the Indian Wars, 1865—1890. Volume One: The Struggle for Apacheria," is the first part of a 5-volume series undertaken by Cozzens. And, unless you're lucky, it is QUITE expensive.

          Just checked abebooks.com. Seems volumes 1, 2, 3, and 5 are around. Also check hamiltonbooks. Didn't get around to ordering from them when their paper came around, and I haven't seen any lately.
           
          Sounds like they're popular. Don't wait too long.

            The ORs are unique to the American Civil War -- no other war in history has published anything comparable. The Cozzen compilations mentioned do not begin to compare. If you have not read it, I would highly recommend Aimone, _A User Guide to the Official Records...._ It is included in the Guild Press version but is worth purchasing in a letter press edition.
             
            The famous "Green Books" published by the Army after World War II were envisioned by Army  Chief of Staff Eisenhower to be the 20th Century version of the OR, with the realization that the volume of material created during World War II would be too great to allow a WW II OR.

            Take care,
