Summary expansion
AB-SA-RA-KA is Margaret Carrington's first-person account of westward expansion alongside her husband, Col. Henry B. Carrington. In 1866 Col. Carrington was ordered to build and defend forts along the Bozeman Trail. Margaret's detailed journals give us an eyewitness description of the fateful incidents that finally erupted in the Fetterman Massacre of 1866. The Black Hills gold rush combined with military infighting and arrogance served as the spark that set off the explosive and bloody defense of their lands by the Indian tribes. This edition of AB-SA-RA-KA is revised and expanded. It includes maps and drawings and has an Introduction by Col. Henry B. Carrington, written after his wife's death
