Native American Wars
(approx. 1817-1924)
The United States in its desire to developed the western region faced the issue that the land was already populated and dominated by Native Americans. Through a series of wars the government eventually defeated the nations and forced them on to Indian Reservations. They were disarmed and subjected to  accept American culture. In 1924 the Apache Wars and the Renegade Period completed and the Indian Wars came to an end 302 years after the Jamestown Massacre of 1662.
