Federal forces attempted to reverse early Confederate diplomatic and military successes in the Indian Territory, recruiting their own Native American forces and pushing south out of Kansas. Union troops and their Native American allies were able to reoccupy most of the Indian Territory, but not, as they had hoped, to invade Texas from the north. Intertribal warfare was particularly fierce, and the families of both sides suffered tremendously.
