History professor Eby demonstrates how this war with neighboring and peaceful Indians caused them and their lands to be sacrificed to greedy expansionistic Whites due to their landgrab. Eby views this war as "a convenient glass through which we can view other conflicts.arising from the inexorable movement westward of civilization encroaching upon territories inhabited by and pledged to Amerindian peoples."
