This page lists references to, or makes note of, Battles from all over the Old West.
Generally, the Massacres* noted here do not involve Native Americans.

Some Battlefields and Massacres noted here are outside the usual date range for Old West Daily Reader. They are noted for historical perspective, on the issues of massacres and/or the taking of slaves, and to note that such incidents were never unique to the West.
