Description

The removal of the Indians from Texas in 1859 did not solve the Indian problem. During the Civil War they again roamed in Texas, and depredated on the frontier of Texas. After the war came reconstruction, and the Indian problem was not taken up for a year or more. The policy followed by the government was not effective, for twelve or fifteen years the Indians continued their raids. The frontier expanded over their hunting grounds in Texas. The buffaloes were destroyed, making it impossible for the Indians to live on the plains
