In a war that freed enslaved African Americans, most Indian people fought to stay free in a land once theirs alone. A crucial part of the Civil War story is that more than 20,000 American Indians fought on both sides of the conflict. Many who fought thought they'd be able to protect their lands, instead, federal Indian policy became more perverse during the war, eventually leading to Westward expansion and the devastation of Native peoples.
