and he was active all during the war. He fought for weeks after
the evacuation of Richmond and the surrender of Lee's army.
The story of Indian participation in the Civil War is incomplete
without a definitive biography of Stand Watie. This reviewer
nominates Dr. Dale to the task of compiling that biography.
Cherokee Cavaliers centers around the figure of the last Con-
federate general to surrender his sword, but the story told is not
limited to life within the Cherokee Nation. E. C. Boudinot, the
Cherokee delegate to the Confederate Congress, gives interesting
descriptions of war-torn Richmond; John Rollin Ridge, the poet
and journalist who followed the gold rush to California, tells of
the mining camps during the days of forty-nine; and Albert Pike
reveals an interesting side of his nature in his correspondence
with General Watie. There is not much of the white man, how-
ever, in this book. Most of it is in the Indian's own words. Each
of these proud cavaliers of Cherokee blood unveils loves and hates,
philosophies and ambitions, in these intimate, personal messages-
messages not intended for the scholars of another century.
This volume is the nineteenth in The Civilization of the Ameri-
can Indian series published by the University of Oklahoma Press.
It is up to the high standard of the Press in print and general
format. A calendar of letters at the end of the volume adds to its
value. There is a satisfactory index.
