Description : Excerpt from The Kansas Historical Quarterly, Vol. 7 The diary furnishes a glimpse of the ﬂora and fauna of that vast region over which, in the sixties, still roamed millions of buffalo and vast herds Of deer, elk, moose, and bear, offering royal sport to the soldier-hunter and food for his commissary. The diary also describes vividly army life on the plains, particularly at Fort Lar amie, the most historic spot in the Northwest, and at Fort Halleck, that little-known post which was the center of Indian hostilities on the Overland trail during 1865, the bloody year on the Plains.
