Storyboard Text

  • Who: The Native Americans fighting in the American Civil War What: They fought with the Union Army some of the tribes with the confederate.
  • One of the battles the Cherokee fought in, the Union army was Pea Ridge. This battle was in March 7-8, 1862
  • Native Americans knew the outcome of the Civil War would affect both the land that was available to them as well as their economic prosperity. They knew the outcome of the Civil War would affect them either way, so fighting for the side they thought would win made sense to them
  • We should Join the Union Army.
  • We should! Maybe if we do then it wouldnt affect our land.
  • Even though some of the Native American tribes were treated badly by the South some still sided with them.
  • What most people have forgotten is Native Americans also fought with the Union. This is important because the Native Americans were part of the American Civil War.
  • The Choctaw, Chickasaw, Seminole, Catawba, and Creek tribes were the only tribes to side with the Confederate and some of the Cherokee
