With many of the Civilized Indians wishing to remain neutral in the Civil War, a Muscogee leader named Opothle Yahola led a group of thousands of fugitives to Kansas. As they fled, Confederate soldiers, along with their Native American allies, gave chase, fighting a series of battles known as the Trail of Blood on Ice.

Chris Calton recounts the controversial history of the Civil War. You may support this podcast financially at Subscribe today at Spotify, Google Play, iTunes, SoundCloud, Stitcher, or via RSS.
