The story of Fort Sumner is that of American westward expansion conflicting with Native inhabitants. In this case it was the Navajo and Mescalero Apache who were targeted, waged war upon and moved to the Bosque Redondo reservation. Thousands of people were gathered and many of those died in the war, the forced marches and life on the reservation. These lessons are comprehensive units targeted at different grades and age groups to teach this dark chapter.
