In the mid 1800's, Catholic Missions settled in Montana and sought to evangelize Native Americans.

A Hybridization Of An Allison-Barber Model Of Decision-Making In Explanation Of The Iran-Contra Affair, James Feucht

Political Science and International Relations Undergraduate Theses

I will argue that the entire affair occurred as a result of a combination of a certain Presidential type and a certain process of decision-making. I will rely heavily on the work of Graham T. Allison and James ...

Under the insightful leadership of Chief Plenty Coups, the Crow nation aligned itself with the white man prior to the campaigns which decimated the Plains Indians in the 1860's and 1870's. Plenty Coups knew that white forces would eventually overwhelm any tribe which resisted "Manifest Destiny." When the whites invaded the sacred Black Hills of the Sioux in 1875, Plenty Coups said: I have observed that the yellow metal drives the white man mad. They will swarm into the sacred mountains of the Sioux and that will bring war. The soldiers will need scouts, more scouts than ever ...

Lewis and, Clark County has, throughout the period of its existence, been one of Montana’s most unique and important political districts.
