The exchange and sex Acts glided by Congress among 1796 and 1834 manage a approach for people to obtain financial repayment from the government for estate stolen or destroyed through American Indians. by means of the top of the Mexican-American struggle, either Anglo-Americans and Nuevomexicanos turned specialists in exploiting this system—and in utilizing the military to assemble on their often-fraudulent claims. As Gregory F. Michno finds in Depredation and Deceit, their mixed efforts created a precarious mixture of fake accusations, public greed, and fabricated worry that at once ended in new wars within the American Southwest among 1849 and 1855.
Tasked with responding to white settlers’ depredation claims and gaining restitution without delay from Indian teams, squaddies regularly had no selection yet to find often-innocent Indians and insist repayment or the hand over of the accountable occasion, turning once-friendly bands into enemy teams each time those demanding encounters exploded in violence. because the state of affairs turned extra unstable, voters demanded a better military presence within the quarter, and profitable army contracts turned yet one more cause to inspire the continuation of frontier violence. even supposing the documents are replete with officials wondering accusations and researching civilians’ deceit, typically the military was once compelled to behave in direct counterpoint to its tasks as a constabulary strength. And at any time when struggle broke out, the purchase of extra Indian land and wealth begun the cycle of greed and violence all over the place again.
The alternate and sex Acts have been manipulated through Anglo-Americans who ensured the continuation of the very conflicts that they claimed to abhor and that the acts have been designed to avoid. In bringing those machinations to mild, Michno’s ebook deepens—and darkens—our knowing of the conquest of the yankee Southwest.
