The Winning of the West was at whose expense? A prominent historian entitled his book about the Plains Indians in the period 1840-1900 The Long Death. Do you think this is or is not an appropriate book title? How did whites justify western settlement and displacement of Native Americans, and how did Native Americans react to attempts to confine them to reservations?

The title is appropriate because Plains Indians lost their sources of income, lands, and usual ways of life. They were confined to unsuitable reserve land under harsh living conditions. Whites justified this by claiming Indians had to be assimilated into modern American society. Some Indians accepted the European way of life, while those that resisted remained poor.
