Excerpt from Boy's Book of the Army For the most part these stories of brave deeds in army life show the kind of men who guarded our West in the days of hostile Indians. While these tales are usually fiction, yet the fiction is usually founded upon some incident of actual occurrence. The old frontier posts have now disappeared. They were centres of a life of adventure and often of a silent heroism, in which women and children as well as officers and men bore their full share. It was a lonely life, but full of picturesque incident and thrilling experiences, as these pages show. Many adventures of Uncle Sam's soldiers are told in the volumes of Harpers Strange Stories from History, which sketch events in our great wars. In the present volume it has seemed peculiarly worth while to afford a glimpse of the soldiers work in clearing the way for civilization upon this continent.
