“Contact and Conflict: The Monumental Story of Nebraska and the Indian Wars by historian Jeff Barnes is a chronological telling of the meetings of Native American and European Americans in Nebraska, from peace through war, as commemorated in historical monuments and markers. These memos from the past mark councils, trading and military posts, treaty sites, battles and massacres originating with the differing cultures on the Plains.
