In the early Republic, leaders like Tecumseh and Osceola fought state and territorial militias, siding with the British in the War of 1812. After the Civil War, conflicts against Indians increased in the Western territories of the United States. Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse defeated General Custer at Little Bighorn, but surrendered to US forces in the late 1870s. Geronimo and the Apaches continued fighting the US Cavalry in the Southwest until ultimately surrendering in 1886.
