In 1824 Brig. Gen. Henry Atkinson and Indian Agent Benjamin O'Fallon traveled up the Missouri River, along with 475 soldiers of the First and Sixth Infantry regiments. Their mission was to end Indian attacks along the Missouri River by negotiating peace treaties with tribes and securing their promise to trade exclusively with American citizens. The record of this early military expedition is now available in this fully annotated volume.
