Between the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 and the Battle of Bear Valley in California on January 9, 1918, the United States had many conflicts with the American Indian. To count a veteran in one of these conflicts they had to be in that conflict or in direct support of it. The name of the conflict is noted after each name.
