Oh please ! Most Indians where not eradicated and has I mentioned in the Native Americans in the Civil war thread with sources the CSA killed plenty of Indians men women and children. The main reason they where sent west was because if they would be captured by the CSA they would be executed. Southerners had no problem killing Indians . yes Indians fought on the CSA has well has for the Union. CSA Indians deserted quite a bit.Unfortunately, most were sent west to fight in the union's indian eradication
Unfortunately, the union sent most west to fight that government’s Indian eradication wars.
